Fans can experience unhealthy obsessions with the uswnt players

Fans also suffer from Depression and Anxiety when their favorite players get hurt during games, especially when Baby Horse goes down or Hope Solo dives on her bad shoulder.

So, if you want to be a fan of the best Womens’s Soccer Team in the world you need to make sure you have good health insurance, but if you can survive the emotional roller-coaster that is the USWNT the happines that it will bring to you when they win it’s priceless.

Canadian USWNT fans get free health insurance, good for them!
