                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Some people say I ramble too much, 
I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well LIKE IT! moved up 
0, to 3rd.  What's with PRIVATE 1?  He actually beat TRANSEL's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and 
walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BLACK AND BLUES.  
ALBERT KING lost 13 points to ALICE AIN'T HERE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
ALBERT KING will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure TRANSEL is excited about ELMORE 
JAMES, the new Duelmaster from BLACK AND BLUES.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  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.  The 
most avoided team was NIGHT ANGELS.  The bums at LIKE IT! couldn't face the 
challenges from NIGHT ANGELS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in R.L.?  His 
3-4-0?  BLACK AND BLUES ain't talkin', but he's got 13 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TRANSEL 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

P.S.  Most of it, anyway.

And besides the Son's win, we went two-two, no standbys involved.  This is not bad.
