                                      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 THE BAD 
BUNNIES stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for SOUTHERN TIER, who flew up 20 points in 
the rankings after mashing RAJ FENRIS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LEON FROM NAPA lost to 
DRONE C1 and drops 14 points.  Try as hard as the DEVIATION stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) PIMP POTENTIAL before this week's 
fights.  In front of all the crowds, SUN TREE 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.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE BAD BUNNIES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does JHELUM really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
DEVIATION's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
THE BAD BUNNIES.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, GIDGET would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  Was it guts or an 
overtaxed mental capacity that had ALLAGASH challenge up 27 points in the rankings to 
take on GIDGET?  I heard ALLAGASH laughed all the way to the inn as his new point 
total of 24 was posted in the arena.  I guess beating GIDGET really pays!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHELUM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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 Peter Rabbit, carrot-thief though he is. -- Jorja and the Dogs
of War

     I thought it was lettuces.

Two-three again.  Not better, but not worse than last time, either.  We'll take it.
-- Sun Tree
P.S.  I could perhaps have let Raj write this, but he doesn't like public speaking.
And the Dog Boy is barely articulate, much less literate.
