                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRANSEL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  TRANSEL 
watched with glee as LIKE IT! got knocked off top spot by PSYCHO SQUAD!  Apparently 
TRANSEL isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Try as he might, PRIVATE 4 wasn't good enough 
at persuading ZONE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BLACK AND 
BLUES!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BALTO ain't reelin'!  BLACK AND 
BLUES' mad!  DESMOND DOSS expects the easy win by going 41 points down.  ALICE AIN'T 
HERE will find this a hard lesson!  DESMOND DOSS bested ALICE AIN'T HERE.  I bet 
DESMOND DOSS could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, PSYCHO SQUAD knows who to set 
their sights on.  ODD of BALTO knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged PRIVATE 1 of 
MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 who is up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  ODD perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he bested PRIVATE 1 and ended up with 100 recognition 
points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  ST MARY'S was plum wore out after R.L. pounded 'im silly in a 
Bloodfeud.  HIGHER LEARNING'll have to get a little better before going after R.L. 
again!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
