                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to DEVIATION, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the TOLBINS HIVE C 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for FIRST BREAK, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing DRONE C3 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was MIKE MCCREADY, who dropped 12 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BRAN MAC MORN.  It's a proud day for the 
OUT OF PROZAC stable, as their warrior, THE UPTIGHT MAN, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad PEARL JAM?  Big bad PEARL JAM.  
Big bad PEARL JAM.  JHELUM's afraid of the big bad PEARL JAM.  Tra la la la la!  For 
those of you who like math, try this one:  PEARL JAM + Weapons That go Boom = 
DEVIATION + Avoid City.  And who is this SUN TREE you ask, with 90 points and a 
16-22-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, THE PENNY JAR went after ROSIE RIVETTER, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, THE PENNY JAR won victory over ROSIE RIVETTER.  QUEEN OF COOL 
of DEVIATION had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a 
challenge which she won.  I thought QUEEN OF COOL showed great skill and promise when 
she defeated SUN TREE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to the Uptight Man. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

And we salute the mail-in tourney participants, with special notice to Mumm-Ra and
Dr. Dale Braino, tourney victors. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Queen of Cool -- Well, of course.  It's winter, after all. -- Sun Tree

Southern Tier -- Now, if you were a PIER, it would've been more fun.  Might've been,
anyway.  We could've gone... I don't know, sport fishing in the gulf? -- Leon from
Napa

Beast Mode -- Ah, well, they tell me many men have a "beast within."  Yours just
happens to be a "beast without," I see.  Ouch. -- Bran mac Morn

The Uptight Man -- To graduate with that record is ridiculous.  You must be a tourney
baby.  Although not very baby-like. -- Raj Fenris

Garden -- Listen, gardens are fine, I have nothing against them, but *I* don't have
time for that, okay?  Maybe next year. -- Rosie Rivetter
