Leicester City kick off against Manchester United in less that 3 hours from the time I post this. A win means that they win their first title in one of the biggest Cinderella stories in sports history.

My write-up: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-738405/barclays-premier-league?pg=41#53767521

Some online articles:

http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/grand-old-age-132-Leicester-City-verge-losing/story-29198531-detail/story.html

This is an absolutely amazing event that is many months in the making, and it's going to be a long time before we see something like this again. It's been fantastic watching a small team rise to the top against all odds beating the traditional top teams to the title.

Detailed match info can be found on the soccer subreddit on /r/soccer. A match thread should be put up an hour before kickoff, there should also be a link for streams somewhere there as well.

If Leicester fail to win today, it's not the end of the world. There's two games after this, and second placed Tottenham Hotspurs have a very challenging trip to current champions Chelsea on Monday.

Boring, they won by default. Geez at least Chelsea earned their Premier title last year.
