But, you're missing my point, if you think that's a nitpick.

You're making arguments and trying to present facts about baseball, but, you're presenting incorrect facts. That deserves to be pointed out. I'm sorry if your inexplicable hatred of American sports blinds you to this, but that is the case. You have said a few erroneous things in your statements re: baseball, so, I just pointed out the one. It's hard to make convincing arguments when you don't know what you're talking about.
So you are not going to explicitly state your opinion about why the world series is called so, but you're still going to conveniently stand on the sidelines and state that I am making an ass of myself just for questioning something related to American Sports, something which is no doubt close to your heart. Wonderful!

Also, I don't hate American sports. I question the validity of certain things like calling an american version of 'what looks like rugby' as football.. or calling a national tournament as world series.. etc. I have no problem with the sports themselves.

And pointing out a mistake like that when it does not contribute anything to the main argument is frankly completely unnecessary and only creates diversions to the main topic.

Zoots - I'm not a non-American, but for what it's worth I think baseball is boring as hell, and American Football, aka, Handegg is god-awful.

I think quite a few non-Americans who have been in this thread are probably sleeping right now, zoots.

This is a silly argument and I am going to end my participation. This is not FYM and we are not Financeguy and BVS. Sorry if my comments were off-putting.

What I would like is for someone to reply to my earlier post about Donald Bradman.

I don't think we're any touchier than the rest of the world is about us calling soccer soccer.

Major League Baseball is the premier baseball league(s) in the world. It's the Holy Grail for any player anywhere in the world. I've got no problem with it being called the World Series.

I don't even know why I like you sometimes.

But you're also a douchebag, so that has to be factored in.

Because I walk softly yet carry a big co.... Actually, I don't do either of those. I dunno, man. Must be my thick eyelashes and charm.

A valid point as I do get a +5 modifier for Douchebaggery. But even so, that doesn't make my point any less valid as i used my +9 Sword of Truth and +3 Knife of Clairty with poison resistance when I made those points. The +5 Douchebaggery would have been cancelled out. Duh.

In all my years on interference, I have never said one bad word about you. Only the Red Sox, but that's reciprocated. So, this personal attack comes a complete shock. I.....I don't know what to do or say.

Et tu, Phanan?

Beav and NSW need each other. Both would cease to exist without the other.

I'm just merely stating the facts as I see them from others. Perhaps I should have quoted someone else.
