    I can see that I made a spelling error there! So Sorry Amigo, yes it actually often is a fortnight of tennis. Either starting on a Sunday instead of a Monday or with the rains has finished on a Monday instead of a Sunday so yes often it is 15 days or a fortnight. But if you want you could look it up. Off topic or not the word is still used even though it was much more common in days of yore...

    When AV initiated the thread and its title I did of course look up the word, fortnight; it was new to me as I said. But I just did not consider it to necessarily be part of a vernacular language so the proverbial "learn something new everyday" applied.

    Thanks Randart.

    Now, if anyone is interested in a possible reversal of 'new' words between English and Spanish, your obviously correct usage of yore -- in this case a far more common term in Spanish than its counterpart in English -- is antaño [ahn-TAH-nyo]: "costumbres de antaño", i.e., customs or traditions of antiquity, of days gone by; yore could also be translated as antigüedad (this word is quite common but not everyone that speaks español is aware of the orthographic diéresis punctuation or, umlaut).

    I'd like to see the Rams win two, even three, consecutive games, by I'll settle for fortnight victories!

    So would I, as an 18 and 3 record would mean another SB Trophy.

    One can dream, right?

    It's crazy how things change after two weeks. I won't lie, I was disgusted with this team after the SF game. It just looked like we didn't try. And when we beat Jacksonville I was happy we won but at the end of the day it was Jacksonville. Now going into Houston and putting on that type of show impressed me. I hope we duplicate that next week.
