                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
CALENDAR GIRLS can attest, moving up by 1.  CALENDAR GIRLS had cause to celebrate, 
after WEDNESDAY ADDAMS got 16 points by beating NINA MARIE.  NINA MARIE certainly had 
a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to WEDNESDAY ADDAMS and losing 14 
points in the process!  A certain someone saw ENDU ENDU at The Warty Toad with the 
shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In 
ERINIKA, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
MAJOR BRADBURY.  Word has it one team in ERINIKA is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of DUDS, alone and unchallenged.  The warriors of 
DUDS found their efforts at combat frustrated as WORLDWIDE GORE apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, THE BIG BANG could 
open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe 
F.U.B.A.R. of ALPHABET SOUP money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK FROM 
THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid ERINIKA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
