                             Notes from the arena champ.

Truth be told, we weren't supposed to be fighting again this turn, but 5 awards equals 
a free turn for all 5 characters, so hey, who can argue with free turns.  T0hat's 2 
remarkable words!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SNOWBOUND?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BERT & ERNIE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLIND REF 
beat C IS FOR COOKIE and C IS FOR COOKIE lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as REMARKABLE 
WORD stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SNOWBOUND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MESOPOTAMIA the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like OPEN SESAME avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, DAPPER DAN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to SNUFFY of OPEN 
SESAME for challenging up by 22 to BONESCRAPER.  SNUFFY lost to get 88 points of 
recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SNOWBOUND's 
morgue.  More variety.  A big yahoo goes out to DAPPER DAN this turn, for revenging 
BOOK OF THOMAS' bloodfeud against MESOPOTAMIA's warrior NERGAL'S FURY.  Heh, heh, 
heh.  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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
