     Well, what are you looking at, MORYA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SIMPLY AMAZING win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ANEJO beat 
CAROUSEL and CAROUSEL lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as HEADACHE 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  FORCE OF FIVE 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 BASH BROS BODY.  
Ha ha ha ha!  OLIVE OIL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
GRESHA THE BASHER of KRYDOR'S ELITE for challenging up by 22 to OLIVE OIL.  GRESHA 
THE BASHER lost to get 30 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy RESTRAINED CONTEMPT a 
drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his 
good side!  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  MEZCAL MAESTRO, a glorious 6-7-0 fighter, 
has passed away.  Gee, too bad BIG SHOTS.  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

RESTRAINED CONTEMPT (28-5472) BIG LAKE PURE (568)

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     Algernon, who had NOT gotten the name change he'd asked for, looked at the latest 
petitioner.  This was a typical gladiator, big, muscular, and scarred, with a frown.  
"Ah, what can I do for you?"
     "Name change.  I heard we can do that.  I'm tired of being Jane Doe."
     "I'd think you would be," Algernon said faintly.  "The Commission has actually 
been thinking about this.  It isn't FREE, mind you!  It takes money to run our office, 
you know, and we want to buy some goats--"
     "I don't care about goats!"  He made a crude suggestion about goats.
     "Gladiators, teams, it will cost you two dollars to make a change--"
     "I had a talk with my manager.  He'll find the money.  I want to change my name 
to Jane Ralph.  I'm no doe!"  He thumped a fist on the counter.
     "Er, yes.  Jane Ralph.  Fill out this form, please."  He pushed the paper across 
the counter.  "The changes start on the 15th of April--that's the Ides, you know, and 
can be submitted through the end of May.  With the payment.  No change without the 
goat, ah, the gold."

                                  *   *   *   *   *  

     Warrior and team name changes will be accepted beginning April 15 and continuing 
throughout the month of May.  The cost will be $2 per name change.  All proceeds will 
be used to buy goats via Heifer International and will be matched up to $500.  
If you have names you want to change, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
