The World Series appears to have got its name due to hyperbolic newspaper reporting during its early days. It seems to be accepted now that the New York World Newspaper did not sponsor the event. So blame the media, not Americans

It is unlikely that any baseball team in the world could have beat the Red Sox this past season.

a tournament that happens only in the united states of america. I don't even know which sport it is, because frankly I don't give a shit. It only happens in america (contrary to the title), so it doesn't concern me.
Person: Did you hear America won the world series?

Me: Against who?

Person: America. Oh and that other team from america. Oh yeah and there were another bunch of other teams all from america.

Me: Was there anyone not from america?

Person: Nope.
