                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHELUM?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DOGS OF WAR, since F BALLS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see NOD win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
TINIETON beat LOVARNO and LOVARNO lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may be getting bland, as FOOS BALL stays top dog 
in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From JHELUM's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  JHELUM 
JUVENILES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like DUDES avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, FUZZ BALL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but STAN 
has challenged up by 27 in an attempt against FUZZ BALL.  But here's a pretty 
tale--STAN did lose the fight, but gained 3 worth of recognition.  Some long shots 
can pay off, I guess.  I guess I can give a little credit to ARNOLD of DUDES for 
challenging up by 21 to JOSEPH.  ARNOLD lost to get 6 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in JHELUM to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

Fuzz Ball -- You broke my favorite broadsword.  That wasn't very nice. -- Tinieton

You'd think that life in the ranks of the Mordant army would be a better fate than
death on the arena sands.  At least, there was some honor in the arena death.
Salute! -- Arrakis

Aren't there any Docile Guards that we can face?  Sheesh! -- Nod & Sod

Foos Ball -- Question:  Why am I not surprised to see you here?  Answer:  Because at
our level, at this time, there isn't much competition.  Question:  How do I fee about
this?  Answer:  Not happy.  Oh, well. -- Leonidas

Stan -- You may be a dude, I won't dispute it with you, but you are no fun in the
clinches.  Better a woman for that. -- Crook

Arnold -- The gods help us, we've been invaded by dudes!  I don't put up with that
kind of thing. -- Lovarno

Fly Ball -- No matter how far you fly, you will not move fast enough to exceed my
grasp this day.  Another day, who knows, but today, you are mime. -- Joseph

Hmm, the Khalhums Dwarf.  I've never cared for dwarves.  Too hairy, and they taste
odd. -- Pete Mastiff

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
