                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  MVP award for SWEET?  LIKE IT!'s proud of it after beating PRIVATE 4 and 
getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PRIVATE 4's match with SWEET cost 
him a loss of 19 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  BLIND BLAKE 
stopped SON OF JOHN dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob 
to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 27-31-3 record really that scary?  I don't know what LIKE IT!'s 
been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from MEDAL OF HONOR 
Y2, that's fer sher.  Like, is ALICE AIN'T HERE popular, or what?  She was challenged 
the most in all of TRANSEL!  She's got a 16-19-0, is that good?  Ooh!  Did MONEY 
really know what it was doing when it challenged ALICE AIN'T HERE?  A 7-3-0 speaks 
volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it means.) Do you think MONEY knew 
something before it challenged ALICE AIN'T HERE?  It got a win and 25 points.  What 
will the beast do next?  PRETZEL must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  It challenged KNEES MCGEE.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they 
tell me.) I thought PRETZEL showed great skill and promise when it was bested by 
KNEES MCGEE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
