I was listening to ESPN Radio today when something the host was talking about really ticked me off. He was talking about the Winter Olympics. His comments where he was not really interested because due to the nature of the sports it could not be true "World Championship" as so many countries were unable to take part because of their climates. This is coming from a host who last week was on about the Superbowl champions being "True World Champions". All who know me know that I love the NFL, but, to say they champions are World Champions is, although technically correct as no one in the world could beat them, is absolutely ridiculous as the US is the only Country to play the sport.

True World Champions can be found in many sports: Football, Basketball, Rugby Union etc.., but, for an this particular host to use the argument he did was one of the most ignorant things I've heard in a long time.
