I can see what it means in this case, but I have always chuckled when I
  "<product> is the official <product-class> of the <sports-league>!"
because most times, it doesn't seem to have meaning. What does it mean if
Pepsi is the official soft drink of the NBA? Does it mean that all NBA
players drink nothing but Pepsi? I think not.

For many of us in the younger crowd of computer geeks, Tron was also very
influential in getting our interests fixated on computers as children.
Tron and Wargames were two movies that influenced me substantially.
