                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  BONSUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but SHRIEKING SIRENS really goofed with their 0-0-0.  
BRAIN like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  Way to go!  MVP award for 
BOMBA YEARN?  UNDER JOLLY ROGER's proud of him after beating VASQUEZ and getting 24 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  VASQUEZ got smashed by BOMBA YEARN, and 
lost 21 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SWEATY stopped CLARITIN 
JUNKIE dead in its tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  WASTELAND II was the most avoided team.  Is a 
815-595-29 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are ESPANA?  
WASTELAND II, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can BEACH BABES' UMBRELLA MAN be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  CAT-IN-THE-HAT is being unfair.  
He's challenged down 16 against UMBRELLA MAN.  I don't know why they let this stuff 
go on.  (I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in BONSUR.  
CAT-IN-THE-HAT got 7 points after beating UMBRELLA MAN, 16 points below him.  
TURTLEFACE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It TV challenged 
LAGUNA LIL.  12 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
TURTLEFACE showed great skill and promise when it beat LAGUNA LIL.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
