I Have Been Diagnosed With SITS
Immediately after the USA-Brazil Confederations Cup Final, I was diagnosed with SITS* - Soccer-Induced Tourette's Syndrome. Symptoms are uncontrollable loud cursing during and/or after watching soccer games of beloved teams (in this case, the USA). Only cures are better finishing and oral application of alcohol. However, the condition is rarely fatal if the victim is watched carefully by several large friends.
* Not to be confused with the British version, FITS (Football, not Soccer), or SHITS (Send Help Into The Shitter, which I last had after visiting Morocco in 2007)
