Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy
     Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk, my first instinct is
to laugh.  But then I think, what if I was an ant and she fell on me.  Then it
wouldn't seem quite so funny.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  D.R.I. 
now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  For every winner there is 
a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at DROP OUTS, who went down to 15th 
from 22nd.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 5-0-1 outing, D.R.I. has advanced 
6 places in the rankings.  BEN'S BAZAAR is no joke as it posted a 4-1-1 week 
advancing from 5th place to 4th place.  Don't these new hotshots make you sick (or, 
if they fought you, hurt)?  WAR ZONE, on their very first turn, went 2-1-0.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BUILD A BARD, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing JUKE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  JUKE was beat by BUILD A BARD and drops 14 points.  
Try as hard as the PACE INVADERS stable might, they were unable to find their warrior 
(and ex-Duelmaster) PACE VENTURA before this week's fights.  It's a proud day for the 
NOMADIC TRIBE stable, as their warrior, SL'S IRONWOOD, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that NOMADIC TRIBE was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of NOMADIC TRIBE's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause AMBER beats feet every time NOMADIC TRIBE smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  And who is this -10 ATTACK you ask, with 33 points and a 1-20-0 record. 
Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks like BLAKMOON wasn't happy with last 
turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 34 points.  No guts, no glory.  
This week BLAKMOON 14-21-0 fought IXION 20-18-0 and in losing gained 6 points.  I 
know several gladiators who could go for a few fights like that.  In a mismatch, our 
friend THE LEVEE of THE BLUES got heroic notions and challenged IOVIS.  What did it 
get it?  A 11-7-0 record, that's what.  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss 
for 2 recognition points, THE LEVEE shows that a beast doesn't have to be good to get 
places.  FEARIO of THE CEREAL KILLERS had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 10 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought FEARIO showed great skill and 
promise when he lost to -10 ATTACK.  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!  Congrats to VATICAN VIKING for 
revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding STRANGE BREW a bit 
of dirt).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SUNSET have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
