                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to HIP HOP HEROES, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SEA DOGS stable.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for TENTH WATCH, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing BUSY BEE 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  COMMON was defeated by OBSESS and drops 11 points.  It's a proud 
day for the SEA DOGS stable, as their warrior, EIGHTH-RATE, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TALCAMA arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  There's got to be more reason 
for the sending of PRINCE PAUL to the Dark Arena than his record (3-1-0).  Anybody 
got any ideas HIP HOP HEROES?  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both 
yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
