If you were part of a team that achieved a goal more than a half-century overdue, you might get a little rowdy -- but elated and totally nuts would be selling Alberto 'Jimmy' Fontana short.

The backup goalkeeper totally lost it after his Novara soccer squad won 2-0 on Sunday, ending a 55-year drought to finally claim a slot in Serie A, Italy's top league, according to Deadspin. The celebration included jumping through a sign, kissing members of the media and running around shorts-less while shooting off a fire-extinguisher.

Just to reiterate, this is the backup goalkeeper. And he's very excitable.
