    I think that favorites is used in both manners, as you said, but you need to go read your first post where you said Argentina was your favorite than implied they are highly unlikely to win. In this context it seems pretty clear that favorite meant something other than likely to win, hence, we must look at the other definition of favorite which is 'personally preferred'.

    What is this? Twilight Zone? Even if you were right, why would I not want to mean what you claim that I meant? If if did like Argentina, why would I have any problem in admitting so?


    I said :

    My favorites would be Argentina (still find it highly unlikely), Italy and Germany.
    My favorites as in "the favorites" in my opinion. I'm Portuguese and I'm rooting for Portugal. If Portugal didn't win the only other team I have some personal bias towards is Holland (MEANING: if Portugal doesn't win, I would like Holland to win possibly).

    Well we can swap if you like. Mine only comes with £23,000 of debt - I'll buy you a pizza for taking that on.

    But seriously, well done to the US, even if they did embarass me.

    I didn't see the game obviously, I was watching England v Slovenia, where apparently everything is ok and England are potential wordl champions, now that they managed to win a game 1-0 against 4th rate opposition.

    Donovan's goal was tremendous!



    This epic unending tennis match at Wimbledon is really remarkable, too.
