Leicester City Is Leaving Vapor Trails

Take that, kajillionaires from the Gulf, the USA, and wherever the hell else!

Looks like another part of the world's gonna Thai one on when all is said and done.

That'd be due to the previously unfashionable Leicester City, keeping the dream alive by overcoming a tricky fixture against Sunderland with a 2-0 victory.

The spotlight often causes even the greatest of big brands to break, but the Foxes aren't and don't.

Their hard work and lunch bucket dedication is paying off. Big time.

Still, against the Black Cats, this crew left it long enough.

It wasn't until the 66th minute that the wunderkind who is Jamie Vardy got the crucial first goal:

A perfect pass from Danny Drinkwater to the perfect finisher, and the stadium went off like a volcano.

Frankly, Sunderland were fighting for their Premiership lives ...

... and their only realistic hope in this one was to steal a point. Vardy's goal seemed to put paid to that notion.

After all, the Black Cats have only managed to eke out 19 goals in 16 away matches all season. True, it's more than they've managed in the Stadium of Light, but with only 24 minutes left in Leicester, Vardy's strike ended their struggle to keep it scoreless, and the pall that all hope was lost set in.

Shouldn't be.

Dudes have a potential six-pointer at Norwich City this coming weekend. If the Canaries hold serve, Sunderland is likely done like dinner.

So, with the Cats' élan done and dusted here, all that was left to do was stare at City shirts flying by them and wonder what's on sale at the duty free.

Well, it definitely will for the Foxes. Every purchase allows them more of a shot at keeping Vardy, who put the cherry on top of this one in time added on:

While money buys big brands established stars these days -- often at overinflated prices -- hard work producessuch nifty goals.

The team that was battling for survival last season is topping all the charts this year.
