pato: duck or argentina’s national sport?

PATO; n. duck, billed animal.

or so I thought…

I stumbled across this interesting article tonight about Argentina’s supposed national sport – http://www.good.is/post/argentina-s-weird-awesome-national-sport/. From all I’ve heard recently about the Argentine people and their obsession with futbol, I assumed they considered soccer their national sport. WRONGI also assumed pato meant duck. WRONG AGAIN.
