                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TRANSEL!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BREASTSTROKE?  
SWIM SQUAD's proud of him after beating XENORIA and getting 21 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  BUTTERFLY got smashed by BULLSEYE, and lost 5 points!  What a 
putz!  GRIMSTAR fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in DOMINO's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't NAIL GUN fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy 
that said TRANSEL's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't 
look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  DARK PANTHEON 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 528-391-38 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are SWIM SQUAD?  DARK PANTHEON, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
