                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
ESPANA is pushed out of top team by WASTELAND II, who came from 3rd with a 4-0-0 this 
turn.  The BEACH BABES guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, HIDE THE 
CATFISH fought BOMBA YEARN and gained 21 points and contributed to KLK PARTY GAMES' 
1-0-0.  MOHONCITO has lost to CLARITIN JUNKIE, falling 10 points, while helping make 
ESPANA a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending its title for another turn, HAILSTORM kept UNDER 
JOLLY ROGER's warrior, CAT-IN-THE-HAT, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the WASTELAND 
II stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on BONSUR, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding WASTELAND II more than any other team we find ESPANA.  BONSUR, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that UMBRELLA MAN from BEACH BABES was BONSUR's most challenged warrior this turn.  
VIEJO VERDE from ESPANA took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 31 points in 
a challenge against SWEATY.  Even though VIEJO VERDE lost the fight, he at least came 
away with a gain of 60 points for challenging on of BRAIN.  DIKEMBE MUTUMBO of UNDER 
JOLLY ROGER had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a 
challenge which he lost.  I thought DIKEMBE MUTUMBO showed great skill and promise 
when he was beat by UMBRELLA MAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that BONSUR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in BONSUR and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Turtleface -- Have you considered that you might look better if you dipped in
chocolate?  Chocolate turtles are very popular. -- Laguna Lil

Don Corleon -- Hey, don't be so hostile!  What you need to do is grab a drink, with
an umbrella in it for choice (that Debby Tonte knows what she's talking about there),
and maybe a guitar, a beach chair (leave the "lying on a towel" bit for the babes,
who look good that way), and come down to the beach.  Relax.  Live a little.  That
kind of thing. -- Umbrella Man

Claritan Junkie -- I was just trying to clear out your congestion. -- Salton Seahorse

Bomba Yearn -- If you're so jolly, tell a joke.  Make me laugh. -- Beach Betty
