Wild ending in Watford

Nothing in American sports quite compares to promotion and relegation battles in soccer around the globe.

See Sunday's Watford-Leicester matchup. The English sides were vying to take a step closer to promotion to the Premier League, the top-flight league in England. And madness ensued.

Imagine East Carolina's football team, for example, PLAYING for the right to earn promotion to the Southeastern Conference or to avoid relegation to the FCS Southern Conference. The stakes, the tension would be overwhelming, as they were in Watford Sunday.
