One of the best days of the year for soccer fans is the last day of the season. All the games are played at the same time and there's usually something at stake at the top of the table and at the bottom. If you want a taste of what this day can be like, you can check out this video of Survival Sunday 2011, when there were 5 teams at risk of going down the final day: Link And here's a video of the final day of the 2011-12 season, when City won in stoppage time to take away the title from United Link
Unfortunately, the Premier League has somewhat of a dull final day overall. The top spot is up for grabs. Manchester City sits at top and only needs a point to win the league. Liverpool need to win their match and hope City lose. The only other spots really up for grabs is one of the final Europa League places. Tottenham currently sit in the last one, with Manchester United 3 points behind, but hold the goal differential advantage by a wide margin. So if the Spurs lose and United win, the Red Devils will stay in European play next season (although I think it's best if they miss out and focus on the league next year).
But something that has never happened in the States before will happen today - every single Premier League match will be televised.

And of course, European soccer provides a wonderful excuse for day drinking here in the States, so I'll be cracking open some brews throughout the excitement.
