Whenever the National Women’s Soccer League gets promoted on social media, whenever this past weekend’s Championship Final was hyped up, whenever the superstars of the game said anything to the media, some rando on Twitter with zero followers and a default egg avatar will feel the inescapable need to interject with that nugget of unsolicited wisdom.
