Allegiance is easy - I was born in QLD - therefore I go for Queensland. For the Olympics - I am Australian therefore when an Australian wins I am thrilled even if I have never heard of the sport. I know the basic rules of wheelchair rugby as a friend once played it and I know what sport Matthew Mitcham is famous for even though he has never starred in a bonds underwear advert. This means I know enough to avoid the tedious conversations about how its 'unAustralian' not to like sport, but not enough to make people think I care enough to have a whole conversation about it.
And well done QLD for their seventh win in row tonight. Which I know despite watching Randling and QI, while playing words with friends on my phone and putting my daughters to bed. Twitter is a marvellous thing.
Only 20 something sleeps to the Olympics - I must remember to maintain my patriotic fervour until then. A spot of Dumb Drunk and Racist should do it. Right??
