A draw that feels like a win. Comebacks tend to do that, of course, but this one had so much more meaning behind it, so much depending on it. Sure, we would've loved to be the ones fighting for the title, but in terms of this season, this result feels so much more than a draw, or a win. We might no longer be champions, but neither will Spurs.

The streak that started in 1990 lives on for another season. It's now been 26 league matches and 29 in all competitions since Spurs managed a win at Stamford Bridge. Frank Lampard once said that the trouble with losing to Spurs is that they'll be making DVDs of it for the next 10 years. Probably no DVDs of losing a 2-0 lead.
There will be plenty of DVDs of Leicester's unlikely triumph. These 22 (plus any others from other betting agencies) will be able to buy a few.
The 22 5000/1 backers who didn't cash out, go and collect. £100k, £73k, £33k, £10k, £6k. We applaud you.— Alex Donohue (@LadsAlex) May 2, 2016
Ladbrokes alone paid out £3m total in title bets, actually losing money in that regard. (They of course made plenty of money on other sucker bets.)
Here are a few more rich people celebrating like they won something. Wait, they did win something! The Premier League in fact!

Jamie Vardy was literally having a party at his house, with his teammates. He also found time to hop on Twitter and poke fun at Harry Kane's lion tweet from earlier.
Speaking of Twitter, former Chelsea prospect and player Robert Huth's tweet-game has always been strong. Congrats, big man!
What a game... makes me look like an angel! CHAMPIONS!!!— robert huth (@robert_huth) May 2, 2016
Someone put plenty of effort into this one.

But let's not forget about the fans at the game who created a cracking atmosphere at the Bridge, especially in the second half, with both sets of supporters bringing the R-rated banter in loud enough voice to cause match announcers to trot out their fake apologies. We apologize...

I appreciate that we came full circle, and Spurs, did, indeed win [fun]-all.

I'm sure I missed a few good ones, so feel free to drop them in the comments.
Congrats to Leicester City for doing the impossible, congrats to Claudio Ranieri for proving all his critics wrong, and congrats to football for this feel-good story overall. We won't be so nice next season.
