    Don't forget the rare and sad times when the ownership basically screws over the fans repeatedly. I think Redskins fans are starting to reach that border.

    Trust us, the hottest thing you can wear to bed is our broken-in regulation hockey or football jersey.

    On the whole an excellent set of tips, Effem, most of which successfully cross over to other sports. Re this part though:

    I would place a caveat of "...unless you are under 10 years old." In that case it's acceptable imo to select a team to support for any of the above reasons, so long as you continue to support them even after you know better. Unlike marriage, sporting fandom is a binding commitment until death do you part. Even if you made a horrible choice. Especially if you made a horrible choice.

    I'd also add another one purely for international rugby, since I've noticed that Americans especially are prone to this error:
    * You like their pre-game cultural dance (eg haka)
