Jingdao lands on dark side of Sweden
Chibi announces: Image

OSLO - In a historic first, Jingdao has successfully landed a reconnaissance team on the dark side of Sweden. The Jingdaoese National Space Administration landed the reconnaissance craft, officially named Nuowei 1 at 10:26 Daocheng time on Thursday near Oslo. Until recently, few considered it feasible for a Jingdaoese team to gain access to Noirway, as the dark side of Sweden is also called. Previously teams were stopped at the border, even if they would produce European passports. This changed when Captain Toutoumomo of the Tegong team that oversees and instructs Carl XVI Gustaf visited a Christmas market at Slottstorget in Gävle. Here he was able to acquire a machine that looked like a giant straw goat, but could hold a dozen Jingdaoese soldiers and be transported across the internal border without even raising one custom officer's eyebrow.

    Expatriates and Prel-Stik

    "Have some more fish, Elsio."

    "Er, no thanks, Mom, I don't want to be too weighed down when we get to playing prel-stik later," Elsio demurred. "I've missed playing with all you guys... is the court up the road still open?"

    "Oh, you must miss prel-stik," said her brother. "Don't they play weird foreign sports up there - ball in a basket, that sort of thing?"

    "It's not 'ball in a basket'. But yeah. I can still play prel-stik, though. There's a decent Mevwani population in my part of my town. Some of us got together and refitted a building to suit. It's just informal, unisex, no spectators except for the occasional player's boyfriend or girlfriend, but playing at family reunions is informal too. I was never heading for a pro position."

    "Damn," said Elsio's uncle. "Was going to tell you that if you want to run a restaurant and have a chance to play I could ask my sister if she wants to let you run a franchise..."

    Elsio laughed. "I'm happy with the restaurant I have," she said. "And with the league I have. Go Green Ribbons!"

    "Green Ribbons, seriously?" asked the nearest cousin.

    "I didn't vote for that team name," Elsio admitted. "We had to please a bunch of people including some who aren't exactly happy with being expats - there's this man who moved with his wife and she likes Safiria and he really doesn't - but - well."

    "Do the other teams have names that dumb?" the same cousin inquired.

    "Depends on what you think makes a dumb name. There's, let's see. Sister Nanthi's Nine. Least Cosash. The Squids -"

    Her mother butted in. "Are these all about where they're from - you're on the normal Mainlander team and then there's Islanders and Cosashi and Lake Province people - or -"

    "No, there's two Islanders and a Cosashi on the Green Ribbons," Elsio said. "But I guess the majorities did fall out that way. Except there's one more team, with a mix of players and no regional hint in what they call themselves."

    "What're they called?" asked Elsio's cousin.

    "Just, The Stikkers."

    I hope that if you're asked "How is Prel-Stick played?", the answer won't be "With gusto!"
