Ted Danson, primarily known for his role in the hit series 'Sam's Bar', was spotted in Parken in Denmark. He was eagerly awaiting the start of the EM qualification match between Denmark and San Marino.

This wasn't just any regular match for Danson; it was his very first football game. The 75-year-old actor, accompanied by his family, including his wife Mary Steenburgen, was visibly excited about the experience. Wrapped in the red and white colors of Denmark, the couple was a sight to behold among the sea of enthusiastic fans.

"I'm looking forward to a wonderful evening with my family. I imagine Denmark will win," Danson remarked with optimism. Despite his unfamiliarity with the sport - he candidly admitted to knowing "absolutely nothing" about football - Danson's enthusiasm was palpable. His love for Denmark, a country he's visited twice and where he has family, was evident. "I love Denmark," he shared with a warm smile.

For those unfamiliar with Danson's work, his most notable role is in 'Sam's Bar'. However, his career spans decades, with numerous accolades and roles in various films and series. His wife, Mary Steenburgen, is equally accomplished, having starred in a plethora of movies and TV shows, making them one of Hollywood's power couples.
