                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ho, Robert Johnson!  One of the spy reporters talks about "taking a dagger and
shaving something close."  I prefer to do it with an axe.  It works, too.

                                  Lizzie Broadaxe

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  BLACK AND BLUES showed TRANSEL what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's 
with SHIRLEY KNOTT?  He actually beat TRANSEL's ROMIAD FLINDERO, and walked away with 
18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at BLACK AND BLUES while they watched 
SONNY BOY II clobber DOOPHUS.  He lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for BLACK AND BLUES' outstanding 
member, Duelmaster JOE WILLIAMS.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting! 
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
