The first goal in the team's history was scored by Jason Kreis against the LA Galaxy. In 2007, he was asked by owner Dave Checketts to retire and be the head coach of the team. They opened their new stadium (Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy Utah) on October 9, 2008. In 2009, RSL beats the Colorado Rapids 3-0 to clinch a playoff birth. They upset the Colombus Crew in the Easter Conference semifinals 4-2 and the Chicago Fire 0-0 (5-4 on penalties) in the finals. They then play the LA Galaxy in the MLS cup final. The match took place at Qwest Field (now known as Lumen Field home of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders FC) on November 22, 2009. Mike Magee scores early for the Galaxy but in the second half, Robbie Findley scores for RSL to tie. The match continues through OT to a penalty kick shootout. Robbie Russell scores the game winning penalty causing RSL to win 5-4 on penalties. They also made an appearance at the 2013 MLS cup final at Sporting Kansas City but lost in penalties

An arthropod containing many legs. Contrary to the name, they only have about 50-60 legs depending on the size of the specimen. The largest species in the world is the Amazonian Giant Centipede (Scolopendra Gigantea) and the largest species in the United States is the Giant Desert Centipede (Scolopendra Heros). Although the venom is not as potent as that of a rattlesnake, the bite is known to be very painful. However this centipede is very doscile (idk how to spell it) and does not run into humans that often. Most bites have occurred either on purpose, or when the creature was trying to be free handled. So the chances of taking a bite while minding your own business is slim to none.
"Centipede" is also a Dubstep song by the Australian electronic music duo Knife Party from their 2012 album Rage Valley. Among its release, it hit #47 on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Songs. It's been featured on notable video games including Guitar Hero Live and Beat Saber
