    I was at the Century Lanudry in WVC and the 92 Dodge Caravan that is being used to drive the cup around pulled up. I didn't know what was up with a faded green and gray van with an RSL magnet door sign and a Dominos pizza sign on top was doing. Some guy dressed in a lion costume jumps out.

    He stopped in for several hours. Upon first glance, the cup looks beautiful, but I was allowed to hold it and it is plastic? What gives? I am not even a rugby fan, but just happened to be there. Kind of a slow day, only 2-3 people there, but they let each of us hold the cup while the lion driving the van folded our clothes. Now that is service.

    Thanks RSL mascot

    I just saw it at Blimpie in Kearns. Kind of shocked that it was plastic. Looked like a Jr. Jazz participation trophy. Did all the teams get a similar MLS participation trophy?

    If you have not see the cup, I heard it will be at the bus stop in front of Lagoon, then off to Albertson's in Ogden.

    LGBT is actually a soccer hater trying to make soccer fans look bad by pretending to be a soccer fan, and also a ... well you know. Don't worry though. We pushed him in front of a bus.

    Where is the impersonator now? Really stupid that the dn doesn't adopt a profile standard for comments. They must like people posting multiple comments at a time and trying to represent themselves as someone else.

    Season is on its way and i cant wait to be inside the riot cheering on the team.
    I agree the team is so personal with their fans and its great to be a part of.

    I know how hard it is too. Nothing takes the pain away like uniting behind a cause though and I think RSL is a great thing for helping you. You are a champion, we all are champions now! Allez RSL!

    Letting the fans see and touch the cup is a great idea. Makes the fans feel apart of the championship. Hope to get another one this year. To LGBT, I have dealt with similar ignorance from other people that do not understand people like us. That is why I reside in Santa Ana. At least you can call the RSL fan base family. Hope to see you at an upcoming game.

    It's really cool to have a trophy to parade around- the first thing in a long time that makes me proud to be from Utah. I've felt like a 2nd class citizen ever since I came out and the bigotry has been unbelievable. RSL has given me something to believe in. I'll be loyal forever.

    GO RSL!
