                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to TANKS FOR NOTHIN', as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE WALL stable.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GIMLET was bested by JIMMY CUSTER and drops 19 
points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  
FUZZ BALL did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the 
crowds, JIMMY CUSTER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  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.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE WALL, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does JHELUM really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE WALL + Weapons That go 
Boom = BABY BROTHERS + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
CHALLON, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, DIAPERED ZALGOR went after CHALLON, who was higher by 20 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, DIAPERED ZALGOR beat CHALLON.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Gimlet -- Drat.  I'm just a pushover for the old "steely-eyed glint."  Drat. --
Howard

Foot Ball -- (ndignantly)  You weren't supposed to use my HEAD for a foot ball!  Toes
in the eyes are what I do NOT like. -- Hannibal
P.S.  It's worse than being stepped on by an elephant.

Merkava -- That "bury in the sand" trick?  They told me that it would work against
your kind.  Something about "sand in the gears."  Did it? -- Jimmy Custer

M1a1 -- Why do I feel like I've been run over by a very heavy wagon? -- Challon

Floyd Pink -- Why am I hearing this really good music in the background?  I don't
THINK it's just my ears ringing. -- Leonidas

Gimlet -- Ah, but Achilles was NOT a small heel.  He was a big loud heel. --
Epimonidas

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
