Despite the terrible streaming optionsrecent FIFA controversy, and low game attendance, the 2015 Women’s World Cup has been in high gear since the matches started earlier this month. While the sport has been growing significantly over the years, the passion for the game is not nearly as widespread as that for major male sporting events like last summer's men's World Cup. This is especially true among dudebros, who make up the core of passionate sports-watching fans. In the video above, we imagine a world where such avid dudebro fans bring the unbridled patriotic excitement, ritualistic loyalty, and statistical obsession normally reserved for men’s sports to the Women’s World Cup.
