It’s easy to imagine Adam Richman obsessing over something. Just think back to his time as host of the ever-popular Man vs. Food series and his reaction to glimpsing any one of the countless calorific comfort food meals he’d eventually devour as a challenge. Off screen, however, the Brooklyn native has a diverse range of interests. He has a strong theater background and sponsors a whole little league. He’s also a super-fan of the English Premier League’s Tottenham Hotspur F.C. He even broke down in tears upon visiting the team’s home pitch for the first time a few years ago.
Tottenham rewarded Richman for his years of dedication last week at the team’s White Hart Lane stadium. The TV personality spent the day taking in Tottenham’s Europa League 5-1 victory over Greek opponents Asteras Tripoli (where he was lucky enough to witness this masterpiece of a goal). Richman gave a running commentary of his fan experience and even got to interview man of the match — and hat-trick hero — Harry Kane afterwards. Take a look at the entire video below, courtesy of Spurs TV.
