That changed this season thanks to the best underdog story in sports. Leicester City, who was 5,000:1 before the season started officially won the league today thanks to a blown lead by Tottenham Hotspur. Tottenham was up 2-0 at halftime today against Chelsea and needed to win its last three games to have a chance to ruin Leicester City's dream season. However, Chelsea scored with just seven minutes to go to force the tie and give the championship to Leicester. Whether you're a soccer fan or not you have to admit this scene is pretty damn cool: https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/727238303590830080 So we're going with 2016 as the year of the underdogs winning stuff? That has to mean good things for Kentucky football, right? Right.
