Sometimes a team beats the odds
If there's any lesson to be taken from Leicester City winning the Premier League (which they clinched with Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur), it's that sometimes a team, or an individual, can overcome the tremendous odds against them and win.
I kinda wish that would happen for the teams that I want to win. But it's pretty rare.
Congratulations, Leicester City. All the underdog teams that dream of glory can now look at your example and say, "If they can do it... then we have a chance too."
Unless you're the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League, of course, because the hockey gods have apparently decreed that they're never going to win the Stanley Cup. I might have more words to write on this subject, because I have quite a few mixed thoughts right now. And there are more actions yet to happen (or not happen) to be considered.
