                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARDIVENT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, THE 27 CLUB, but WE GOT 
GAME was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for KASPAROV?  WE GOT GAME's proud 
of him after beating WINEHOUSE and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  WINEHOUSE got smashed by KASPAROV, and lost 16 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DEATHSCAR should let BLIND OWL be Duelmaster for 
a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors 
get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE 27 CLUB was ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are WE GOT GAME?  THE 27 
CLUB, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation! 
Can BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' BROOKE JONES be more popular than me?  She was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old BLIND OWL stumbling around the arena, 
before DEATHSCAR finished him off.  Oh well!  I see BLIND OWL got killed by DEATHSCAR 
of BLACK COLOSSUS.  Now I want to see some serious Bloodfeud action out there!  Hey 
you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or 
have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
