Bad luck comes in threes, they say, and fate's cruel blows cannot have had a greater recent impact than on the sports-minded residents of the Sunshine Coast. Hot on the heels of Queensland's loss to NSW in the State of Origin, the first time that unnatural state of affairs has manifested itself in eight years, the Socceroos went down to defeat in Brazil.
And just to cap off the litany of misery visited upon residents in the seat of Fairfax there can be no consolation off the pitch. After all, having sent the antic Clive Palmer to Canberra last September, every day's headlines are reminder that the ballot box will suffice for a net when voters are determined to kick own goals.
Of course I am counting on the good sense of humour of my many Queensland friends who may just follow Rugby League & International Soccer......... Nothing personal!
