     I'm going to have to fly through this to get it done before the snow flies
again.  I wish I really COULD fly, I'd go south!  Ah, well.
     Significant point movements:  The Upright Man, up 150.  Anzahanzek, down 6.
Different fights.
     Sentinels may have been avoided by Alastarian Idol, or it may just have been
cold words while standing in line.  Almost Pretty got the challenge.
     Yes!  We had a challenge!  Eight fights, one challenge, two standbys.

     WONTON NOT NOW (73-6069) (25-19-1,74) of PALINDROMES fought RIRORNI SOLDIER
(107-3) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  WONTON NOT NOW overpowered RIRORNI
SOLDIER in a popular 1 minute gory uneven duel.
     DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (17-14-0,18) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought UNEMPLOYED
PERSON (107-5) (0-0-0,70) of Fine Imported Standbys.  DIRTY DIAPERS was vanquished by
UNEMPLOYED PERSON in a 1 minute uneven duel.
     That's the two standbys, and they went one-one.

     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (82-70-0,194) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought OZAWINDIB (7-
6212) (36-31-0,182) of SENTINELS.  1977 AMC MATADOR devastated OZAWINDIB in a 3
minute one-sided competition.  This may have been because Ozzie was standing there
like, well, a sentinel and making a perfect target of himself.  Or it may have been
the difference in experience.
     OBROJOBO (7-5869) (52-49-1,208) of SENTINELS fought PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (52-
84-0,169) of CENTER FOR OLDS.  OBROJOBO vanquished PINCH BLISTER in a 2 minute brutal
mismatched fight.  Of course.  Nobody LIKES a blister.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (50-74-1,199) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought JELLO
KNUCKLES (42-4554) (62-62-0,177) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA defeated
JELLO KNUCKLES in a crowd pleasing 2 minute bloody match.  Virginia says, "No jello
in the stocking!"
     ARUGULA (3-7180) (35-40-2,185) of VEGGIES fought ANZAHANZEK (7-6204) (32-31-
0,171) of SENTINELS.  ARUGULA overpowered ANZAHANZEK in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
gory mismatched duel.  Not a genuine surprise.  After all, SOMEONE had to win.

The challenge:
     THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185) (41-60-0,205) of ALASTARIAN IDOL challenged ALMOST
PRETTY (42-4496) (98-52-0,204) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Down 1.  THE UPRIGHT MAN viciously
butchered ALMOST PRETTY in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Now we see why Upright got so
many points.  The clerks love a death.  Don't know why, but they do.

For the title:
     AZAGHAL (81-1223) (59-45-1,285) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought POCKET NEWS (19-5364)
(39-36-0,215) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  AZAGHAL vanquished POCKET NEWS in an exciting
1 minute uneven Title battle.  And so it goes.  Probably just as well not to have a
reporter on top.

Ozawindib -- My manager looked it up.  He apparently has mad skills with computers
and he claims it would have taken him longer to type this sentence than to look up
our fight history.  Here is your history against me since turn 63 W5, W6, W8, W3, W2,
L5, L1, W8.  Looks like I have some work to do, but Assur says I need to learn more
skills before I start weight training. -- Arugula

Almost Pretty -- grumble, grumble -- The Upright Man

Ozawindib -- Take that, you Santa lover. -- Virginia

Mauli Lama -- Weren't you just in the initiates class recently?  You've moved up fast
(or maybe you are just better than Assur's guys down there). -- Arugula
