* In AustralianRulesFootball, when their side cops a rough umpiring decision early in the match, fans will inevitably scream that the umpires "have been doing it all day!"

* The United States is usually criticized for the scope given to the sports that are played there; while it's widely acknowledged that leagues such as the NFL, the NBA and the MLB are top-notch and are watched by millions of people, the Super Bowl (namely by its moniker ''The World Championship Game'') and the MLB's ''World Series'' in fact are not representative of the whole world. League merchandise now reflects this criticism. NFL merchandise now states "Super Bowl Champions," while MLB limits their t-shirts to "World Series Champions," in partial deference to the MLB-co-organized World Baseball Classic. Though most of these are artifact titles from days where these sports weren't international. However, those titles are basically a BadasBoast that still has value - which other team on earth could claim to be better than the best of Major League Baseball or the NFL? After all, the NHL quickly and silently shelved all their "world champion" claims when Soviet teams beat the reigning NHL champion more often than not.

** Movies can be even worse about this, since there's rarely more than four or five major films competing in theaters at any given time, and they'll usually be varied in genre (since otherwise, they'd eat each other's business). Most of the time, a major studio movie can run with "#1 [genre] movie" because it's the only one in theaters that week, or at least the only one that opened then, when any rivals were on their last legs. And when even that fails, while they can't specify time, they can specify whether it's the #1 movie in America (and therefore ''only'' in America) or the world (and therefore ''not'' America).



* A TV ad for a game based on ''Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'' proclaimed the game to be "Probably the greatest action game based on a movie based on a superhero comic of the year." Seriously.
