                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  LIVING DEAD after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as 
BASH BROS TAXI can attest...  ALMOST EXACTLY had cause to celebrate, after SHOCK AND 
AWWW got 14 points by beating RAINSTORM.  RAINSTORM certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to SHOCK AND AWWW and losing 12 points in the 
process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by G.I. DON'T KNOW, 
of ALMOST EXACTLY, who despite a 8-2-0 couldn't overcome LAPUR's Number 1.  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in LIVING DEAD are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, ALMOST EXACTLY scurried away from LIVING DEAD.  
Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, RAINSTORM could open up a fast food joint! 
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid LAPUR farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

into our fine free city! -- Vlad
