I am not a fan of my teams in any sort of ironic sense. Though KC sports teams would be very easy to accomplish that with; I wonder if people outside of KC think of people wearing Royals shirts as doing it ironically.

If a KC sports team ever does win something then I'll at least get to claim "I was a diehard fan longer than you" to the bandwagoners. But I won't stop liking that team because of their success. Now, I stopped liking the Red Sox franchise after their successes, because their fans turned into colossal dicks. I can already tell that if ever it was the case that Mizzou or Chiefs or Royals fans experienced a championship then they would be insufferable. The difference is those teams will still be local teams; I can't turn my back on them even if the fanbase sucks.

So, no, I don't think being a sports hipster is exhausting to me. Mostly because I haven't tried being one.
