                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to GOT BLOOD?, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the BOOK OF THOMAS stable.  It was a tough week for 
GOT BLOOD?, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  It's a proud day for the BASH BROS 
SPORTS stable, as their warrior, REGULAR SEASON, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that BASH BROS SPORTS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of BASH BROS SPORTS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys 
like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause OPEN SESAME beats feet every 
time BASH BROS SPORTS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, BARKLEY would be president.  Although it may be a contest he 
doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, BLOGG went after 
EXTRA LONG SHIFT, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the dust settled, BLOGG 
won victory over EXTRA LONG SHIFT.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SNOWBOUND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
