Because they give me so much time to care about other teams. Currently there is really not a single thing about Australia worth following or looking up, not the news, not the scores, not the statements; even the line-up is back to dull, now that they have removed Smith and Tait again.
I have been accused of treachery by several people. You are not supporting Australia anymore! You are collaborating with the enemy!!!
Jeez. If your kid is at the same time the best student, the prom queen, the football captain and the school bus driver, wouldn't you think that you can pay some more attention to the kids that need getting shouted at?
For example, the kiwikid is a rather average student but at least he tries hard. Will never step out of aussiekid's shadow and thus tends to vent his frustration on the first graders, when no one is watching, literally.
The saffakid just scalped the big Indian bully in front of class, well done, applause! But he can't sing, can't draw, can't read a text. I'll have to keep shouting.
The paksiekid wouldn't even arrive at school, if I didn't chuck him on the bus every morning. He would get lost somewhere between the front door and the driveway. The report reads like this: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFuck.
The germankid is locked up in detention for the next 1000 or so years. It makes me cry in my sleep.
So please guys, I truly appreciate Oz being that successful, I just don't have the emotional capacities to go mad about them. Will be back to full rage as soon as they start cocking things up again. In NZ maybe?
