It Really Grinds My Gears When…

I was watching T.V. the other night and a news clip about the “World Champion Green Bay Packers” came on.  I’m sorry, but when did the WORLD begin participating in the NFL?  Last I checked, the Super Bowl was only open to American NFL teams.  Therefore, the Packers are not “World Champions”, they are National Champions, at best.  Spain is the current World Champion.  Although I suppose it really depends on which sport you are talking about (I choose to use the “other” football here, since it is the closest comparison).  I’d like to call the network that said this (I think it was ABC?) and correct them on their false advertising.  The English language has clearly gone to the birds nowadays.
