                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome OSKSI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT 
were a bunch of dogs after AESIR got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought GAMES LIBRARY was an over-rated team and they proved it 
with a 0-5-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  
Thrust!  Block out the pain!  M*A*S*H 4077 is now ranked 3rd with a 3-1-0 turn.  It 
seems so recently people were saying AESIR was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved 
them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with HAWKEYE?  He actually beat 
GAMES LIBRARY's MERISANDARA TIRON, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at M*A*S*H 4077 while they watched SGT. ZELMO ZANE clobber 
DUDE 5.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as he might, VITHAR wasn't good enough at persuading WHIFF to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  OSKSI thinks AESIR and their 
815-789-51 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no 
team with a 811-788-51 would scare me off!  What's the problem, VEGGIES?  What do 
people see in BRUNHILDE?  Hers 19-11-2?  AESIR ain't talkin', but she's got 76 
points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  KEAMRON VRO, with his forgettable 6-15-0,  was put to death by 
DUDE #1 in a forgettable match.  GAMES LIBRARY didn't seem to mind very much.  Is it 
my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Melondarion Noris -- There is a word for warriors like us!  Unfortunately it isn't a
word that is flattering.  The word is: "Mediocre." -- Arugula

Argula -- I did my poor best to dress up that fight for you, but, well, it WAS a poor
best, I admit that.  And you were impatient.  If we could have gone a couple more
minutes, things might have looked better. -- Melondarion Noris

Brunhilde -- I was doing fine until you started to sing.  I can't stand singing. --
Merisandara Tiron
P.S.  I had a teacher who always started singing right before she whacked me with
ruler.  Turned me off singing forever.  Or at least for a long time.

Dagur -- I say unto you, heck!  Double heck.  Embarrassing. -- Kandaresron Varn

Sfc 12 -- So, are you cheaper by the dozen? -- Keamron Vro

Dude #1 -- I so did not need that!  Just wrapped up our oh-fer turn here. --
