Leicester City Wins the Premier League

I watched the Tottenham/Chelsea game yesterday and it was one of the roughest, nastiest games I've ever seen. Tottenham players gouged eyes, spiked hands, and tackled the Chelsea players like they were trying to break legs. It was clear that Chelsea successfully got under their skin, because Tottenham was the team that needed to win the game to keep their slim hopes of winning the Premier League alive.

They didn't.

The final score was 2-2, which gave the championship to Leicester City.

How big of an upset is it for Leicester City to win the championship? At the beginning of the season, their betting odds were 5000-1. They have never won it before. Never. And the club has been around for 132 years.

This is a bigger upset than the Cubs winning it all.
