SALT LAKE CITY — It hasn't been easy being a fan of Manchester City soccer. They have been overshadowed for years in their own city by powerhouse club Manchester United. City fans have been waiting 44 long years to celebrate an English Premiere League title. All City needed Sunday was a win over Queens Park Rangers to end the drought. They couldn't resist putting their fans through more torture as they were in danger of seeing the title slip from their grasp down 2-1 entering 5 minutes of stoppage time. Manchester United was ready to celebrate another title, as they were finishing off a win over Sunderland.

What happened next was the most exciting 5 minutes of drama you will ever witness from a sporting event.

City got two goals in stoppage time to complete an improbable comeback. Just as entertaining as the dramatic finish was the reaction from this commentator for Sky Sports.

Even the most passionate soccer hater can't deny how incredible that moment was. It was a finish for the ages.

Grand Sunday

The most dramatic play in baseball has to be the walk-off Grand Slam. They don't happen often. That's why what happened Sunday is so special. For the first time since 1998 there were two walk-off grand slams on the same day in Major League Baseball. The first one was hit by Florida's Giancarlo Stanton giving the Marlins a win over the Mets. The second was hit by Cincinnati's Joey Votto to give the Reds a win over the Nationals. Votto's day was even more impressive when you consider the walk-off was his third home run of the day. He went 4-5 with 6 RBIs.

Too hot to handle

Kentucky Center Anthony Davis is sure to be the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He dominated the competition in college, leading the Wildcats to the National Championship. He does have one weakness, however: the blazin' wings at Buffalo Wild Wings. I'm sure this will show up on the scouting report next season.

Sports Tweet of the week

Following athletes on twitter tends to be lame. Nobody wants to know when these guys and gals go to bed or finish a workout. However, there are a few out there who are entertaining. Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants is one of those guys. He used Mother's Day to talk a little off-season trash with division rival and Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.

Apparently there is some bad blood between these two guys.
