Current Team Captain:
Jack Belvedere: "I was a Cobra for 6 seasons, throughout many complete roster changes as people came and went from Second Life. So there are many widely varying memories. One of my favorite is when we finally made the playoffs, in Season 7. We ended up without the Cup, but it was thrilling to make it there after so long wearing the Cobras jersey."
Huxley Fouroux: "S7 definitely stands out. Especially our 1st round playoff series with
the Moose. Best playoff series I've seen in GOHA to day. Went 7. Moose
took the first two games. Cobras battled back to even the series at
2-2. We dropped Game 5 to reach the brink of elimination at 3-2 then
took Game 6 and pulled it out with a Game 7 win. I remember Games 4 and
7 being especially nail biting. Game 4 we were down 6-5 going into the
3rd and pulled out an 8-6 win. Game 7 was tied with less then 2 minutes
left when Ellick netted the game winner late. Good times."
Merrik Caproni: "I've had many memories in my time with the cobras. The Cobras have been
my home for the majority of my career. In S5 i was drafted 3rd overall
which was a complete shock to me considering all the talent in that
draft. I also believe that was the first season in which i seen
playoffs from my regular team (subbed for wolves in s4). S8 also
brought the first cup and first on ice playing trophy. S9 has been the
best season so far though. Everyone saw our roster in the beginning and
quickly dismissed us but our rookies panned out and developed into very
helpful weapons and our veterans have been sharp as ever."
Ruffian Lane: I was a 7th round pick for the Cobras in S6, with no expectations of
showing up or being a factor in anything. Cobras not only gave me the
chance to play, but to play this game at a very high level. I went from
0 points in 17 games my rookie season, to Playoffs MVP in S7. I will
never forget the game 7 against the moose in the S7 playoffs, and the
post-game scrum. That is how hockey is supposed to be played, a full
game and a little extra after the game, right Kert?
S8 speaks for itself, a group of good friends all with one common goal,
the cup. We accomplished our goal in a stylish manner, sweeping the ice
lords. Now I sit here and long await my much wanted Cobra return!
Ellick Yumako: "Being traded from the Wolves in Season 6, I realized I wasn't the
player I used to be. With guidance from Jack, Kert, Hon, Augs, I came
back. In S7 was the best, beside S8 where we won the cup, I think the
fact that we were having fun in chat and while playing the game. I
remember just having Ruff, Hux there on offense, we just made magic
happen from nothing. The Trio was born then and it went on to S8 where
I finally achieve what I was missing for a long time. A cup win. Had to
get my name on the cup (Eat that Jensen Itokawa)"
Abu Salazar: "I never forget on classical course of in-game voice chat in Cobras
season 9... it started with Mika McAlpine s "Hey Guys, can you hear
me?" ... then comed Merrik with analysis of history and future, Hux
with analysis of opponent players, time to time was heard some Ahmads
music passages, Bostons little laughs... and in final Hux with "Where
is the &$%^ Patman" and "How she can hit me?"
Han Okelli: "The best memory was being on a team with another girl, her name is karynn. And winning the cup the after party Lance,harley, hux, and Merrik got
naked and danced on the bar ;D. Also based on this team I knew Lance,
Hux, Tiro and Ruffian would make good captains they did well filling in
