                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for TIMYCHA, who pummelled SCOTT JOPLIN, to pocket 12 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 8 points to WALLER.  (Discrete enough, NAILED THERE?) PUSHIN UP DAISIES found 
out that RIZTAB isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  
So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     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 RIZTAB avoid DREAMERS.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the 
"warriors" of DEAD PARROT, so did that sorry team shy from DREAMERS Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and SCOTT JOPLIN is it right now.  Most challenged 
warrior.  Isn't BLUE NOTE proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  The audience gave a 
nice round of rasberries to ARETE of DREAMERS, for expiring in such an ungraceful 
fashion.  3-10-0, indeed!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RIZTAB is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for RIZTAB?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
