1. Do you make a special menu for Superbowl Sunday?

2. Do you shave your legs less often in the winter?

3. If applicable, do you wear both your engagement ring and your wedding band together?

"Well, half the players are from South/Latin America, lol. And a few from Asia."

Surely a few Serbs and Africans too, no? We once flew back from Belgrade in this tiny plane. It had two sides on either side of a central aisle, but the window seats had a very low ceiling because of the curvature of the hull. The Serbian national basketball team was on the same flight, and the stewardesses were running around to get people to give the aisle seats to the players. They simply could not fit in the window seats. IOW, on average, Serbs are huge.

"I just know that it does play in other countries" Do you know where? I am sure you are right, but I have never come across it except when accessed FROM the US, via dish or similar. I guess these days you could pipe in NBC or whatever via computer.

The reports about the number of people around the world that watch American holidays like that are pretty inccredible.  That and the commercials hype, I hope my pick for the best Doritos one wins, Lol.

"Why so bitter?" It's not bitter, it's true. When I used to live in Japan, where baseball was really big, every year I would get asked, "How can the Americans call it the 'World Series' when they only play each other? Does America not know about the rest of the world?" It makes us look a little silly.

It does seem silly now but the first World Series was in 1903 so there is  a lot of history behind the name.  So if there ever is a championship series between teams from different countries I assume  it would have a different name.

If there ever were to be a true world championship contest in baseball, we could call it the "Universe Series" and a hundred years from now the aliens will want to play.

And they would be telling us how silly we are for calling it a Universe Series when only one planet is playing,

Which one did you pick? They were all so funny. We picked the Ostrich one but the one with the finger cleaner was hilarious.

There probably are ... I don't follow baseball enough to know.

Now they're watching a HOLIDAY?  It's zoomed right past "last football game of the season" straight to "holiday"?  I think that might even be too extreme an exaggeration to count as hyperbole.
