Mario Martinez dances the most important dance in Sounders MLS history and also scores a goal. (Animated)

This Sounders FC playoff win still hasn't sunk in. I present Mario Martinez' goal celebration dance in all it's Western Conference semi-final glory and the goal that sent our boys into the Conference Final.

Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders FC were seemingly waiting for the other one to flinch in the second leg of their Western Conference semi-final. As the old cliche goes, it was going to take something extraordinary to break the deadlock. And that's just what we got in the form of Sounders FC's Mario Martinez. Brad Evans started with a give-and-go with Eddie Johnson, passing off to Fredy Montero who chipped the ball onto the run of Mario. Martinez took the ball off one hop and struck a beauty of a volley past the diving Nick Rimando. Boom. Goal celebration dance ensued. Boom. Into the Western Final we go. More dragons to slay.
