Leicester City begin with a win

My favorite football team (no they're not in the Premier League) is Leicester City, a team that made its way back into the English Championship this season.

As everyone on the team has been saying that they needed to do, the Foxes started the season with a come-from-behind win (2-1) over Swansea on the opening day of the 2009 campaign yesterday.

This is fantastic news for me (as well as all of their other fans, no doubt) because supporting Leicester was becoming a lot like rooting for the Tokyo Swallows.

You see, Leicester got relegated to League One for the first time in team history two years ago, and that's exactly what would have happened to my favorite baseball team several times over if such a system were in place (thankfully it's not).

But there back up on the doorstep of the Premier League, and a strong start to the season might mean an outside shot at the playoffs.

At the very worst, fortunately, a return to League One appears to be out of the question.
