                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARVAT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  YOUNG STUDS were a bunch 
of dogs after THE WALKING DEAD got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Ever take one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  
Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  DEVIL ADVOCATES!  It seems so recently people 
were saying THE DELIRIUM RULES was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 8.  
I guess they're washed no more...  What's with HALO?  He actually beat YOUNG STUDS' 
HARD LANDING, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
BLACK COLOSSUS while they watched GRIMSCOR clobber WHIRLY BIRD.  He lost 14 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  OTTOMAN EMPIRE's hatred of THE 
WALKING DEAD surfaced again as NYDMOR WYNZE challenged ARVAT's top dog.  I'm sure 
ARVAT is excited about NYDMOR WYNZE, the new Duelmaster from OTTOMAN EMPIRE.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, ERRATA!  In my day, no team with a 48-36-2 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, SECRET SQUIRRELS?  What do people see in AQUARIUM HEAD HERB?  His 7-5-0?  
THE WALKING DEAD ain't talkin', but he's got 51 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  G. RAY HAHN looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned 
DEVIL ADVOCATES is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 10-2-0?  So 
DEVIL ADVOCATES sent G. RAY HAHN to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters 
where G. RAY HAHN came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  WHEELCHAIR had a 
sure-fire victory when she challenged FLAGRANT, 27 points below her.  Was anyone 
really surprised when FLAGRANT bit it?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
