dimspace said:it was actually a lame attempt at a joke based on the superbowl being the "world" american football championship, the world series in baseball, the nba finals being "the world championship", then hocket, etc etc etc...
it was never meant to be making a point, it was, as a post, much like the american cycle team, a joke..
if you didnt take it so seriously it was actually mildly amusing..
I didn't view this as a lame attempt. I think it's quite accurate. In America, they like to call it The World Series, yet it only involves teams from Major League Baseball. I don't believe any teams from other baseball playing nations qualify.
Same goes for the NBA World Championship. No teams from other basketball playing nations are eligible.
As to the Super Bowl,the winning team like to refer to themselves as World Champion Super Bowl winners. Though only teams from the NFL may compete for a chance to go to the Super Bowl.
I think it's just a case of semantics. With a touch of arrogance, as is widely perceived by other nations.
