    One interesting example of the overblown American identity is how everything that happens here is very often referred to as biggest in the world or as happening in a world context. The “wold series” for baseball; the winners of the superbowl are the a”wold champions”; yesterday, I was watching the cooking competition, Master Chef, and it was referred to as “the biggest culinary contest in the world”.
