                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at PEARL JAM left the arena dejected, after being kicked out 
of the top spot by THE BAD BUNNIES.  Good show!  He who laughs last didn't get the 
joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe DOGS OF WAR.  Last week they got 1-4-0 
to drop by 4!  What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to THE BAD BUNNIES.  DEVIATION had cause to celebrate, 
after BEAST MODE got 15 points by beating JEREMY.  JEREMY certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to BEAST MODE and losing 11 points in the 
process!  PETER RABBIT found out that JHELUM isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the 
best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from 
the lion, so did the "warriors" in JHELUM avoid DOGS OF WAR.  Like a pup with its 
tail between its legs, DEVIATION scurried away from DOGS OF WAR.  Oh, the shame!  If 
challenges were horses, MIKE MCCREADY could open up a fast food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHELUM is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHELUM 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Ah!  We didn't fight ONE SINGLE STANDBY today.  And, no surprise, went one-four
because of it.  Standbys are generally easier to defeat.  And I'm graduating, which
confuses me.  What am I supposed to do with graduation?  I'm not some great hero to
go out and save the world from monsters!  I'm just a mediocre guy who's been lucky,
best suited to keeping the home fires burning.  In suitable home fire weather, of
course, not in the armpit of summer.  Although as chilly as it is tonight, despite
being late July, that isn't an unwelcome idea.  Maybe I should go find a home and
start it burning. -- Bunker Bill
