                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THIRSTY THUGS?  Who?  JAY-Z is the top team these days, buddies!  He 
who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe THE 
MENTORS.  Last week they got 2-3-0 to drop by 4!  What's a move up by 6 you ask?  
(alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to FEARSOME 
FIVESOME.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but THE HOLY LEGION 
will tell you 34-42-5 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for VORTAS, who 
pummelled TEMPE POSTMASTER, to pocket 21 points.  SCRAPY DORK certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to AMICUS CURIAE and losing 10 points in the 
process!  KRAKO successfully staved off a grab for the roses by HASTIGHET of VIKINGS. 
Does KOLACT have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
KOLACT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in KOLACT avoid THIRSTY THUGS.  As a woman of good breeding scorns 
the "warriors" of VIKINGS, so did that sorry team shy from THIRSTY THUGS If 
challenges were horses, DARWIN could open up a fast food joint!  JOBS challenged 
2012!  Who says THE MENTORS are just a bunch of wimps!  JOBS of THE MENTORS kept his 
wits as he overcame 2012.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Q:  What's a record like 10-16-2 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  
This week's winner:  DROCK of THE MENTORS!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in KOLACT is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  KOLACT, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at Don Corleone's.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
