Editorial - Monday, July 7: Still feeling the Blues

AS a Maroons supporter through and through, there is no surprise I was fairly disappointed with the score in game two of State of Origin.

Not only because the cockroaches took out the whole series, but because they really ruined the whole series.

Usually this time of year my nerves start to surface and the maroon war paint is liberally applied to my face come Wednesday as I gear up for a fiery game three.

But no, this year, you Blues had to go and ruin it.

Don't get me wrong, you did deserve to take out the match and series (finally), and you probably did play better football than the Queenslanders, but couldn't you have just lost the second game so the final was at least worth watching!?

The third Origin game is usually one of my favourite days of the year, but this time, it's just not going to have the same vibe.

Of course I will still watch the game to see the mighty Maroons take out the game - and also mostly to perve on Cooper Cronk who will hopefully play more than eight minutes.

But there probably won't be as much shouting coming from my lounge room as most years.

And before you go getting too excited, New South Wales supporters, wait until you've won seven more series...then we'll talk.
