Is it worth it to support the USMNT?

Or USWNT? Or whichever other teams you support as well?

From pre-dawn wake-ups to watch your favorite European team to the visceral sadness and anger that accompany crushing defeats (looking at you, USMNT), is being a fan costing you more than you receive?I get asked a lot if I’ve watched our post game reaction to that game. I haven’t, and I don’t think I ever will. Call it “BIRFing” (see the article), but I can’t do it.

Check out this article from The Atlantic, which delves into what you’re really getting in return. Even if you don’t find it interesting, maybe you’ll like the new terms for what you feel when you have a night like this!
