You know the old road trip song “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.” That sounds like a lot but, let’s face it, the wall is doing all the work. Imagine carrying 48 beers in your arms through a crowded stadium. That’s what a couple soccer fans in the Netherlands each managed to do this week.

According to the Daily Mail, two FC Twente supporters were sent on beer runs by their friends during the match with Willem II on Sunday (10/17). They were both photographed carrying stacked trays of full beer cups from the concession stand back to their seats.

One of the two fans, Christiaan Roetgering, admitted that a friend of his had once managed to carry 50 beers in one go. Still, 48 is an impressive number. At a recent Carolina Panthers game, the best I could do was a beer, a Coke, a bucket of popcorn, and a bratwurst. On those steep upper level stairs at Bank of America Stadium, that was enough.
