                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRANSEL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, LIKE IT!, since BLACK AND 
BLUES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see ALBERT KING win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, ALBERT KING beat TOM TIGER and TOM TIGER lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, DOVAHKIIN has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as ELMORE JAMES takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Sultan's Tent, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TRANSEL's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLACK AND BLUES was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was LIKE 
IT!.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, R.L. was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  MONEY 
challenged down 25 against BLACK AND BLUES' R.L..  What a weasel!  MONEY was defeated 
by R.L.!  Ok, MONEY want to fight my grandmother next turn?  Huh?  And we have EARLY 
MORNING in a challenge, going down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
EARLY MORNING showed great skill and promise when it bested KNEES MCGEE.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And now a passing thought on a warrior 
dying young (TAB of LIKE IT!):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in TRANSEL to get a drink than The Sultan's 
Tent!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens
