Mal here,

     Zoe, got a hot little number rushing up the rankings with clear designs on your 
seat.  Oh, Krode is running up behind her with a big smile on his face--he really is a 
fan of her seat.  He says he likes the way she slaps his seat.
     This has become a Benny Hill episode.

     Keep 'em flyin',

     Mal

     OK, Alpha Caeli.  Show me you are ready.

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SHADOW BRIGADE turned their 2-0-0 turn 
into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SOH LAH TOA win a 
fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SOH LAH TOA beat RIVER and RIVER lost 
15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
MOUSE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  H IS 
FOR HOUND, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like GOOD BEHAVIOR avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SHADOW DJINN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than Drake's 
Barbecue!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide 
Clemens
