                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  What's with BOMBETTE?  She actually beat THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's JERI LOUGH, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at TEAM CHAOS ELITE.  GODSMACK lost 12 points to AMBITIOUS GUARD.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GODSMACK will provide more easy wins...  Try as she 
might, HELENE JUSTE wasn't good enough at persuading GRETZKY to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PAPER MARIO ain't 
reelin'!  THE MIDDLE WAY 5's mad!  What do people see in BOMBETTE?  Hers 18-5-0?  
PAPER MARIO ain't talkin', but she's got 78 points.   
     Warriors of KALTOS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Gretsky -- I changed my mind.  I didn't want you. -- Twink

Fergus -- Flip me over the far wall?  Whaddaya think I am a tiddly wink or something?
-- Twink

Elinde -- That was uncalled for. -- Bombette

Overd -- A Quill a day keeps the doctor away. (from me) -- Star Rod

Gretsky -- You fought the good fight and won the battle fairly and squarely.  A
salute to the champ. -- Luigi, Paper Marios

M. Chardinee?  Heck. -- Jeri Lough
P.S.  Did you know he looks like a fat little bird.  I think it's the sunflower seed
shells on his waistcoat.

Bombette -- (reeling back in shock)  I WON?  This is an incredible surprise. --
Elinde Goss

I wouldn't call M. Chardinee a fat little bird.  More of...a fat little pig ready to
slice and fry. -- Helene Juste
P.S.  But I am NOT encouraging the development of a "cook-off" line of chatter here!

Star Rod -- Huh.  Whatever got into Bombette didn't reach you, I guess. -- Orverd
Quill

Jim Brown -- Ah.  Thanks for letting me start off with a win.  I trust it will set a
bias for my future in the arena. -- Gerdig Ibbins

Twink -- I see you're not a mathematician.  How can anyone go 10-46-23? -- Jorja

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
