It's that superiority complex. They ARE the world. . You'll get what I mean if you ever come here.

Baseball is mostly played in US i guess. And all US teams participate as in each of their state has a team, thats why its called like that.

Baseball is the most boring sport. I drive a race car and love to watch F1, ALMS, Grand-Am, and World Rally.
I can't wait until the world series is over and done with. I live in the Philly suburbs and am sick to death of hearing Phillies this, Phillies, that everywhere. Can't go into a store with out the obligatory "Go Phillies" greeting. UGH!!!!!!!
Back to your rhetorical question. I wondered why it was called a "world" series as well. Guess its for the 2 Canadian teams. Frankly some of the best spectator "ball" sports I have seen was soccer in Europe, Rugby, and Australian rules football.

soccer in europe? Surely you mean football. =P

Wow. That's not totally off topic or anything. There's a thread stickied at the top of the Ipod Touch jailbreak upgrade downgrade restore forum about being stuck at boot logo.

yes I realize it's football in Europe by I was translating into "American"
Here's one my son asked me today: why do we call a nation's chief executive a "head of state"? And a state's (US State) chief executive a "governor"?
