                                      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 STREET PIZZA stable.  Coming up with a 
solid 2-2-0 outing, SEA DOGS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for BOTTOM FEEDER, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was EIGHTH-RATE, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with DRES.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya 
can'ts wash yer clothes.  MOKO JONO did not fight this week so hers title was 
forfeit.  It's a proud day for the 4-LETTER WORDS stable, as their warrior, YIPE!, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion 
a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And who is this COMMON you ask, with 86 
points and a 22-19-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  YIPE! of 4-LETTER WORDS 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which he 
won.  I thought YIPE! showed great skill and promise when he overcame COMMON.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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
