goddamit. god-freakin-damit. i am so over supporting NSW. i know that will come as a shock to many who know how passionate i am about state of origin but honestly, i don't know if i can go on.
it's not a sore loser thing. i mean, don't get me wrong, i HATE losing. it's why i don't do things i am not good at. but, on this occasion, it's more of a sore 'i-feel-like-i-have-more-passion-for-that-jumper-than-the-13-'men'-in-blue-on-the-field' thing.
i am going to make this brief because it could otherwise turn into the rant of all rants but i admire the passion of queensland. i am jealous of it. even when the maroons shouldn't have a hope in hell of beating a star-studded blues line-up they manage to, at the very least, work a few passion-inspired miracles and come close.
us? we give up 18 points in the first 20 minutes like it's going out of style. seriously, someone do the research on how often the scoreline has been 18-0/18-4/18-8 or something similar within the first quarter. i can't be bothered but it feels like it's a s.o.s requirement.
to be fair, there's been a couple of occasions over the past few years we've run away with an early lead. but, of course, passion yet again prevails and queensland run us down.
anyway, i'm not one for jumping on and off bandwagons. especially when the jumping is win-loss based. but i'm just wondering why i should keep caring when it seems the team don't. anyone?
