                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
WILLAF brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, GOLDEN GLADIATORS, since 
BLOOD ON THE TRACKS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now 
let's all watch BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' heads swell from their 5-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha 
ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GINA 
LOLLOBRIGIDA beat GOLDEN TONGUE and GOLDEN TONGUE lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, as JACK OF 
HEARTS stays top dog in the city.  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.  
PANDORA'S CARDS, 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 who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, THE HIEROPHANT 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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

Congrats to Jack Of Hearts, a worthy Duelmaster for Willaf. -- Midas and The Golden
Gladiators

Sofa'Yam -- You sat on the couch.  I, on the other hand, flitted my way to a victory.
-- Goldfinch

Rusty Neales -- I fought my very best.  I had to.  May the force be with you. --
Golden Tongue

Gina Lollabrigida -- You are quite the pin up.  I felt I had to treat you with kid

Jack Of Hearts -- Shucks!  May none of your flashes be golden. -- Golden Flash

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold. -- Midas

Rusty Neales -- Don't ask us.  Your mother might know. -- the rest of the Punny
Aminals

An oh-fer.  It must be the rain. -- Black Indekker
