                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "Peschisolido"...is that some foreign way of saying "pesky solid fish"?  Worse
than tuna, for certain.  Good try, and there goes your winning record.  Come again,
any time the sun gets too much for you and you want to bask in the shade of my
signature umbrellas.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome BONSUR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS showed 
BONSUR what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0. 
What's with LAGUNA LIL?  She actually beat UNDER JOLLY ROGER's CAT-IN-THE-HAT, and 
walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at BEACH BABES while 
they watched LAGUNA LIL clobber CAT-IN-THE-HAT.  He lost 8 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  Another fighter (DIKEMBE MUTUMBO 23-21-1) 
challenged another Duelmaster (UMBRELLA MAN 16-45-0).  Life goes on.  I'm sure BONSUR 
is excited about DIKEMBE MUTUMBO, the new Duelmaster from UNDER JOLLY ROGER.  
(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.  
BONSUR thinks WASTELAND II and their 844-604-29 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS couldn't face the challenges 
from WASTELAND II!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in LAGUNA LIL?  Hers 
17-29-0?  BEACH BABES ain't talkin', but she's got 101 points.   
     Warriors of BONSUR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  USELESS II had a 
sure-fire victory when he challenged POLYMORPH, 23 points below him.  Was anyone 
really surprised when POLYMORPH bit it?  How long have I been here?  I got people to 
see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Umbrella Man -- Ah come on, don't protect me from the top by opening up like that. --
Peschisolido

Laguna Lil -- Normally we footballers don't talk much, but after all those skills for
the past two turns, I personally had to say thanks. -- Solskjaer

Sandy Shore -- So close to having the whole team shut-out of the win column.  Thanks
for being the most hospitable of the Beach Babes. -- Pires

Total Disaster 1.0 -- Should be up to at least a seven by now. -- Salton Seahorse

Solskjaer -- It's your name.  The arenamaster stumbles over it every time, and it
messes you up. -- Laguna Lil

The Userous Merchant?  Oh, HA! -- Beach Betty

Pires -- Oh. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  I thought the announcer said "pyrex," and I was all set to start cooking.

Marlith -- Yeah.  Well, I sort of wish I knew where left field was, so I could get
MORE stuff from there. -- Sandy Shore

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
