SPORTS & LEISURE- GOHA Opening Weekend- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

GOHA has many fine rinks, and I've flown above several of them while weraing a skirt...
Staff Reporter

I don't know about you... but when someone says "August," I think "ice hockey."

However, I was pleased and psyched to attend the opening weekend affair hosted by the Global Online Hockey Association.

GOHA is entering their 11th season or so, and have grown impressively since I first visited their rink as a noob avvy. They now have multiple arenas, TV coverage, a gang of teams, North American and European divisions, and every other item you might see at a real hockey game. I've even driven the Zamboni!.

Of course, it's better for all parties if they keep me from driving the Zamboni too much. I drive poorly, to the point where my husband drives everywhere IRL. This carries over to SL, and I have an ugly history of smashing stock cars into the audience and driving motorcycles off the edge of various sims.

I also don't skate very well, which is tough for a New Englander to admit. Out of all the people you know who have habitually skated on a frozen cranberry bog as a child, I have the least skill. I'm one of those girls who not only falls down when I skate, but who takes two or three more proficient skaters with me when she does so.

But I'm very pretty, and I have terrific thighs... maybe top 5 on SL, no joke. Therefore, I make a superb cheerleader, especially where I'm small and not that painful to have on top of a pyramid. When I found out that the Puckettes existed, I knew I had my niche in GOHA.

I was a hockey cheerleader in high school. Yes, they have those in New England (and probably Michigan, I'd imagine). We didn't do any flips or anything- we were stationed in the bleachers. We'd just stomp, yell, and clap. It required no skill at all.

My principal responsibilities as a high school hockey cheerleader were to Be Pretty and to Try To Keep Warm. My typical attire was a sweater, a green (we were the Green Dragons) tartan skirt, tights, snow boots, a scarf, and mittens. A skeleton showed more skin than I did, our backs were to almost all of the crowd (coach had us facing the rink, for some reason), and only the most ardent cheerleader fetishist bothered to watch us.

The Puckettes thought things through a little better, and I'm proud to be a part of the team. We put in some work this weekend, let me tell you. GOHA is part of the Camonix(?) sim, which is all about winter sports. Chamonix had their welcome party this weekend. It was that little promo item you see while you're logging into SL, pretty much all weekend.

I cheered at 2 full games, did two Puckette performances, and greeted about 500 people, and committed about 6 hours of a Saturday to the cause... and I was a slacker compared to some of the Puckettes.

Anyhow, here's the address to the sim (, and here's GOHA's schedule:

Sports & leisure- Jersey Girl- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

SFL #1 Overall Draft Pick Adrenaline Auster...
GOHA news, SFL Draft on TV, and Stacey flirting her way to 100 sports jerseys....

I am the SL Enquirer Sports Editor. This avocation leads me into many different realms, some of which have cool uniforms.

I like to collect them. I used to buy them, but I soon realized that God made me this cute for a reason... and if that reason isn't to get free stuff, getting free stuff will keep me busy until I figure out what the reason is.

I worked through the Global Online Hockey Association already. Whales, Storms, Wolves... if it skates, I have the jersey. I'm also gathering SFL jerseys, but it amuses me to get them one at a time.

A lot of people see me wearing my GOHA jerseys, and they ask me where they, too, can get one. The answer is here:

Dubai Jazz-My Way: Milla Rasmuson's dream in SL

Staff Reporter
• Monday, August 23, 2010
Milla Rasmuson is a virtual business woman, whose businesses in SL all share one thing in common; They are really more of a services offered store than a place to purchase physical items.

She’s a fashion designer both in RL and SL: she creates model and mainstream cloths.

She discovered SL in 2007, reading an article about it that made her curious what SL was all about so she signed in.

From the beginning she was amazed about the live musicians performing in SL and thought, let her do something in the live music scene in SL.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Jack Belvedere, the El Jefe of the Global Online Hockey Association.

GOHA has been around for 11 seasons, and is the premier hockey federation on SL. Several teams playing in several arenas, with TV coverage and cheerleaders... and yours truly is one of the cheerleaders. 'Tough to beat that, Hoss.

I recommend GOHA to not only anyone looking to play hockey on SL, but to anyone who just wants to try out a sport.

On to the chatting...

Musician Spotlight- Swina Allen's Italian mood in Second Life- Sandy Demina Reporting...

Staff Reporter
• Thursday, August 12, 2010
Swina Allen is an IT manager whose life has always gone with the music.
When he was 14 he bought his first Eko guitar and he started playing and writing his own music. He loves also playing keyboard and piano:he has an awesome 1920 's Hofman-Khune piano on whose ivory keyboard he took his first jazz piano lessons...but the guitar was always on his way.When electronic music was accessible to his pocket he bought his first Roland hardware sequencer and a Roland synth and arranger. Soon after he got a Yamaha like strato electric guitar with a 100 W Montarbo valve ampli. He love to work with software sequencers like FLStudio, Sonar or Cakewalk to produce his own music.
A couple of years ago he discovered the virtual stages in Second Life, where he has packed all the inworld venues where he performs. His love of the jazz/blues genre comes through in his melodic verses and smooth rhythms. 
He only performs original tunes but sometimes he sings in his own way some greatest tunes:Springsteen's "Devils and Dust" and Sergio Endrigo's "Io che ho amo solo te" or Ivano Fossati's "Il bacio sulle labbra" among his favourites.

SPORTS & LEISURE- SFL DRAFT: Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

SPORTS & LEISURE- SFL DRAFT: Stacey Cardalines Reporting...
#1 overall pick Adrenaline Auster, of the Polano Chargers...
The first two rounds of the SFL Draft were held last night at the SFL Headquarters.

The draft was SL big time. Carlito and I were not the only reporters there, nor was SLE the only media represented. They had a stage, an owners area, and a press area. Players were shuttled back to talk to the press after they were drafted. Very organized.
My mock draft was good, amazingly so. My number 2 overall pick ended up going first, and I had guessed 13 of the 23 first round picks (although not which team took them, granted)... not bad for someone who basically sat in the bleachers in a short dress.
Several teams passed on drafting. Maybe they had IRL stuff to do. I know I had to do some marital gymnastics when telling my husband that I was going to ignore him for 4 hours so I could basically cover a Madden draft. Fortunately, the Red Sox were playing the Yankees, so I got out of it for beer and pizza. Unfortunately, the Yankers won.
I'll let Carlito analyze the draft- he had some good observations while we were talking during the 4 hour event, while I spent the last three hours looking for cocaine. I'll just tell you who went where.

SPORTS & LEISURE- SFL MOCK DRAFT: Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

Hurricane Diesel and the Raiders stadium were good enough to host the SLE mock draft...
The SFL Draft is this Sunday, at the SFL Headquarters somewhere. But the SLE Mock Draft is right here, in your greedy little hands.

The SFL is set to kick off her inaugural season, and SLE has it all covered. Not only will you have me dancing into the topic from time to time, but you'll have Carlito Praga, a full-time SFL beat writer. That's a lot of avatar-based coverage right there, folks.
My job today is to attempt the impossible... forecast how all 32 SFL teams will select players in the first round of the SFL Darft.
I've been lurking and newtworking and scouting and gossiping and flirting and whatever else I had to do to gain the keen pigskin insight which I will now flex before you today.
Know that I'm guessing what position each guy will be playing. Players may even play offense and defense for all I know. I looked at all the men standing together, and the bigger ones end up in the mock draft trenches. If I have them as a quarterback, it means I saw them throwing a ball. Beyond that, the players play whatever position matches the player info I thought up.
And I know what you're thinking.... "How will Stacey know what teams are picking in what order? The SFL guards that information very closely. You're snuffed at the goal line, b*tch!"
