                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's official.  Former Star Trek captains are more timeless than former WWE /
WWF / whatever they call themselves now wrestlers.
     Since I'm not at 12 PPs, I am finished in the arena for a time.  Keeping the
throne would spoil Assur's grand plans.

Farewell
     Pick Hard

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TALCAMA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, NEXT GENERATION, since 
STONE COLD took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  STONE COLD 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st 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 DORSEY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LEGACY beat ROWDY 
RODDY and ROWDY RODDY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, PICK HARD has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as COUNSELOR 
OBVIOUS 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  STONE COLD 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 MENTORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  ROWDY RODDY was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TALCAMA's 
morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  
Anyway, this turn it came.  BUSTA's 5-10-2 has earned him the Dark Arena.  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
