Survival Sunday a Hit in America

I was going to do a review that covered the entire EPL season, but this dramatic season can be defined in one crazy day.

Manchester City won the title on goal differential over Manchester United for the first time in 44 years. How Manchester City won it will be remembered around the world, even in America.

Manchester City defeated QPR 3-2 and scored two injury time goals to secure the trophy. The game was broadcasted live on ESPN2 so all of America was able to view the game.

When the game ended, Twitter blew up with people commenting on the shocking finish. Sports fans who never talk about soccer took the time to give their input on the ending of the match. As a Manchester United fan I was obviously disappointed at the result, but found silver lining that the popularity of soccer is growing in America.

For fans who loved the Survival Sunday, make sure to stick around and follow Euro 2012. The intensity and competition is great and every game will be on the ESPN family of networks.
