                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ALJAFIR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE OFFENDERS, since 
QUEENSRYCHE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, NERDS RULE!, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the 
rankings?  QUEENSRYCHE turned their 5-0-2 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings 
this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  ALJAFIR saw the 
first turn for MURICA, a 5-0-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to 
notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see REVOLUTION win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JON beat OFF THE 
HOOK and OFF THE HOOK lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as CHARLIE TUNA takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ALJAFIR?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  FISH THANGS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE OFFENDERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, GARDNER HEDGE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to WEIRD SCIENCE of 
NERDS RULE! for challenging up by 19 to MINDCRIME.  WEIRD SCIENCE lost to get 69 
points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy JET CITY WOMAN a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good side!  Honor 
is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ALJAFIR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ALJAFIR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to T.G.I. Floyd's.  And a salute to the participants in the
summer tourney, and, hmm, a congratulations to Rookie tourney victor Horde.  All
those guys, way to go! -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

For the rest, two-three.  No challenges, one standby, just the general run of things.
A little fishy, but we can (we hope) live with that. -- Gidjit Hayes
P.S.  We should get paid for teaching so well.
