There it is again, my pet peeve
Please only use "literally" in a situation where something actually happened.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter:
We now know the eight teams that will contest the title: Germany, Argentina, England, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Brazil and France. Who do you think are favourites?Anything can happen in football. That said, past experience would suggest that the host nation enjoys a certain advantage. In fact, Klose, Frings and the rest of the Germany team seem to be literally carried along on a wave of enthusiasm.

Really? How come I haven't been able to see this magic wave on television?
