                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHELUM?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SMELLS LIKE FROG turned their 1-0-0 turn 
into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see TUM'S SOCKS win a 
fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  And if variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may 
be getting bland, as BEAST MODE stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  JHELUM, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
PEARL JAM the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
DEVIATION.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MIKE MCCREADY was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice PIMP 
POTENTIAL challenging down 33 points to fight LEON FROM NAPA, DEVIATION doubtless has 
some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And sorry to say, PIMP POTENTIAL 
beat LEON FROM NAPA, leaving a bad feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob 
is the term I'm looking for.  RAJ FENRIS was challenged by one of DEVIATION's 
warriors this turn, with QUEEN OF COOL having a lead of 16 points going into the 
fight.  And golly gee, QUEEN OF COOL defeated RAJ FENRIS.  Aren't we all surprised 
and impressed?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of JHELUM.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
