                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out OSKSI to see 
what's new.  Like, FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked 
off #1 spot by I WANT YOU!  Way to go I WANT YOU!  What was the name of that team who 
got 3-1-1 this turn for a total 328-194-17 you ask?  (Sure)  OUR HIGHEST HONOR's 
their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BRIANN JANUARY?  MAJOR BUMMER's 
proud of her after beating THE BELL and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  FAROLZEN VARU's match with HONEY cost him a loss of 11 points!  Like I WANT 
YOU's ORGAN GRINDER is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster JURY DUTY!  Was 
that a tear I saw in ORGAN GRINDER's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
JURY DUTY fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said OSKSI's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Elefont?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Can I WANT YOU's WASHED OUT HORN be more popular than me?  It was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  How cruel!  I WANT YOU heartlessly sent 
its to WASHED OUT HORN certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 13-13-2 bad or 
something?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
