                             Notes from the arena champ.

    The Veteran Mercenary is pathetic, but we all knew that.  The poor fellow's past
it.
    I, however, am a splendid warrior badly mismanaged.  Nick just doesn't understand
me.  But the Grey Witch has seen my worth and invited me to the Isle where I will
serve her PERSONALLY.  So there!

                                   The Goalie

P.S.  9-13-12-9-15-16-10 SC!  High/low.

P.P.S.  I am, of course, extremely attractive--women see my superior qualities, even
if Nick can't--so any of you who want to come to my farewell party and bask in my
presence may do so, as a special parting gift from me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for URU, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing MUMBLEDY PEG 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was MUMBLEDY PEG, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with URU.  Our battling duelmaster THE GOALIE has managed to hold the title, fending 
off VETERAN MERCENARY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, OSKSI.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
