I did not ask for or expect this!  So this next turn, who wants to go swimming?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  TRANSEL watched with 
glee as SWIM SQUAD got knocked off top spot by RAPTOR!  What's with AGNAR?  He 
actually beat SWIM SQUAD's SIDE STROKE, and walked away with 22 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at DARK PANTHEON while they watched AGNAR clobber SIDE 
STROKE.  He lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE VOLS' outstanding member, Duelmaster OL 
SMOKEY.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  CRAWL, with his forgettable 5-4-0,  was killed by 
EAGLET in a forgettable match.  SWIM SQUAD didn't seem to mind very much.  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     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

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
