    American football team on tv now claiming they are world champions????

    Only 1 country play the boring game, so how can they claim this?
    In Blackpool we have a Monday night pool league where all the pubs compete in 4 divisions with a relegation and promotion system. The league pool rules are slightly different and only played in Blackpool.
    Last October, our pub won the Premier league.
    Are we world champions?

    Quick, quick, let me say it first!

    If you live in the USA, the world ends at our borders.

    You can organize a world championship and win by default, but not claim it before.
