                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for FLOPSY, who flew up 18 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.  DOG BOY BITES was defeated by FLUFFY and drops 6 points.  Try as 
hard as the TOLBINS HIVE C stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and 
ex-Duelmaster) DRONE C1 before this week's fights.  It's a proud day for the THE BAD 
BUNNIES stable, as their warrior, COTTONBALL, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
LEON FROM NAPA, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display 
by a 'touched' warrior, TUM'S SOCKS went after LEON FROM NAPA, who was higher by 20 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, TUM'S SOCKS was beat by LEON FROM NAPA.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering RAJ FENRIS as he was driven to an early grave by FLOPSY of the 
THE BAD BUNNIES.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
