                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in BONSUR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, CLARITIN JUNKIE 
fought UMBRELLA MAN and gained 11 points and contributed to WASTELAND II's 1-0-0.  
Defending his title for another turn, SWEATY 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 Warty Toad until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  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 UNDER JOLLY ROGER.  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.  
DIKEMBE MUTUMBO of UNDER JOLLY ROGER had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DIKEMBE MUTUMBO showed great 
skill and promise when he defeated LAGUNA LIL.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in BONSUR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in BONSUR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
