reaching saturation point

Ah...that's better. The sun's shining, the baby's sleeping, the coffee's percolating, the Sunday papers are spread out on the deck...but I'm a bit confused by the headline on the Sun-Herald frontpage:

Our best ever. Hockey heroes break hoodoo and gold record

Uh...what's a "hoodoo" when it's at home? I always thought it was just a nonsense word the Hoodoo Gurus made up.
And just on the subject...would it be unAustralian (or should that be, unOlympic?) of me to say I've had just about enough sport now, thank you very much?
