                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MORDANT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave MANNEQUIN'S BEST a 0-1-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, UPSTARTS' 2nd moved them up to 2-2-0 place.  What's with TINGO?  It actually 
beat HOMICIDAL MANIACS' SCHOOLBUS DRIVER, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at RUN DMC while they watched ROCK RHYMES clobber DR J.  
He lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Another 
fighter (FRAN TIC 16-12-1) challenged another Duelmaster (SANDBOX FURY 17-3-2).  Life 
goes on.  I'm sure MORDANT is excited about FRAN TIC, the new Duelmaster from 
UPSTARTS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
SWEORDMASTERS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at UPSTARTS ain't reelin'!  
SWEORDMASTERS' mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  LOW ROAD 3's boys should be laying low.  Now that LOW ROAD 3's 
manager has gone and let SANDBOX FURY kill ETHELBERT POTTS unchallenged, LOW ROAD 3's 
fighters are fair game.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

I tried to tell Jorja we didn't need to do personals, because the whole city had
perished.  She didn't listen.  She never does. -- Masked Murderer

Rock Rhymes -- And to rhyme rocks, as well!  But most of them seem to be "rude and
crude," so I've got to keep 'em to myself. -- Handy Dandy
P.S.  Or I could whisper them to people in alleys.

My Adidas -- You're going to kick me, aren't you?  I can tell. -- Masked Murderer
P.S.  Wait, where are you?  I'm not seeing you here!

Two-three, which is, well, better than last time, but not much better. -- Schoolbus

P.S.  And the Low Roaders went two-oh, which is annoying of them.
