When simply being a soccer fan and supporting your local team isn't enough, dig deeper.
Find yourself an obscure, relatively unknown, "total football"-playing club and start a new FIFA 14 or Football Manager 2014 game with them.

Pay double the price of a Premier League jersey on eBay if you have to.
But you know what you are when you do all of these things, right? A football hipster.
According to The Guardian, there are even different levels of football hipsterism. Go take their football hipster quiz to see how high — or low — you rate on their hipster scale. Then, come back here and do two things: tell us how much of a football hipster The Guardian says you are, and help us create an MLS hipster quiz of our own.
Help us come up with the best questions that only the "fans before MLS got big" would know. We'll compile a dozen or so of the best MLS hipster questions and release our own MLS hipster quiz later this week.
