Manchester United Wins The EPL

With Sunday's 1 x 1 draw between Arsenal and Chelsea, Manchester United were crowned champions of the English Premier League. It was the 9th league championship for Sir Alex Ferguson during his 21 year reign at the club.

The Glazer Family of Tampa Bay, Florida, didn't exactly receive the welcome mat when they took over the club, and placed significant debt on its formerly pristine balance sheet. But through shrewd player purchases and contract renegotiations, along with the legendary coaching abilities of Sir Alex, the first English team owned by North Americans won the EPL championship.

Well done, Manchester United and Messrs. Glazer.
