                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello fellow Bonsurians!  This moment has been a long time coming, since my days of
youth many years ago.  Along the way, I have imparted much wisdom and "blessed" many
a gladiator on the arena sands.  Several have come away with a better attitude, if
not a slight headache.  Broken bones heal, but defeat, err...I mean faith, lasts
forever.  To the children who have been smitten too hard by the power of my sermons,
bless you as well.  You are now free.  You no longer need to creep around on the
attic floorboards above my chambers and scare the livestock.  That means you
Galveston!  I don't want to sleep in Moses' room anymore.  He talks in his sleep.

Best of luck to all.  Please step up to the pulpit.  I have many more nuggets of
wisdom to share.  Amen!

-- Rev. Slammer

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to BONSUR once again!  Biff!  Pow!  BONSUR watched with glee as 
SENTINELS got knocked off top spot by IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS!  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought CHURCH LADIES was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-3-0!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS is now ranked 1st with a 4-1-0 turn.  Some people say I 
ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
BRUTAL LEGION moved up 1, to 5th.  What's with HUNTSMAN?  He actually beat BRUTAL 
LEGION's FATALITY, and walked away with 28 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at SENTINELS while they watched HUNTSMAN clobber FATALITY.  He lost 20 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS' hatred of 
AMEN! surfaced again as SOLSKJAER challenged BONSUR's top dog.  I'm sure BONSUR is 
excited about SOLSKJAER, the new Duelmaster from IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
BONSUR thinks SENTINELS and their 190-129-13 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 189-125-13 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SANDY SHORE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  Keep challenging up 31 points, PIRES, and I won't have to write about you much 
longer.  MOSES always accepts those kind of challenges...  PIRES found one way to 
advance:  challenging MOSES and losing, but getting 9 points.  No brain, no pain.  
SANDY SHORE didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from HENRI of 
IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS, who is 19 points below her.  HENRI perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he subdued SANDY SHORE and ended up with 92 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Some people in BONSUR think CHURCH LADIES was too harsh when 
they sent DEBBIE (3-1-0) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  BLUDGEON of 
BRUTAL LEGION got 26 points for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, CHURCH 
LADIES!  Tut, tut.  How well I know and share CHURCH LADIES' grief over the loss of 
MARGO.  How well I know BLUDGEON's pride at killing a higher-ranked!  Someone told 
MARGO that BRUTAL LEGION never Bloodfeuded, that she'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm 
sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, 
master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Bonsur -- Apologies about not defending the throne or writing a column last turn.
The boss has notoriously slow mail, and turn 579 only arrived on the 18th of Jul, but
turn 580 was due on the 16th.  Challenges have been made, but the slow mail works
both ways.  The team policy is not to downchallenge in recognition, but often the
challenges are based on records from 2 turns prior by the time they get through. --
Solskjaer, Imported Footballers

Huntsman -- How did you get up there so high?  Fighting Beach Betty and Sandy Shore
all the time? -- Solskjaer

Fatality -- With talent like that, you would have been offered the throne last turn,
but my money's on you to beat Slammer to the punch. -- Henri

Pensacolita -- Do you realize that your name in French means, "Think of a little
Coke." -- Pires

Long Beach Lila -- I've camped on Long Beach before, but didn't see anyone quite like
you. -- Van Nistleroy

Smackula -- If you really only had the 8 FE your record indicates, I would have
considered that an interesting match-up.  With tournaments, however, I think I am
happy to have simply survived. -- Obrojobo

Blue Cube Guy -- Two in a row!  Back from the brink. -- Neanderthal

Nora -- We will have to try that one again sometime.  Nice win. -- Ogresmasher

Moses -- Huh!  See if I ever pull you out of the water in a basket!  You can just
DROWN. -- Sandy Shore

Baby Jesus -- There's something wrong with this. -- Pensacolita

James Tippy-Toes -- What you need to do is go up to Aradi, or whatever it's called
today, and team up with Tiny Tim.  The two of you together would be a great act, and
what's even more important, you'd be a long way off. -- Long Beach Lila

Ogresmasher -- Silly boy!  You have to remember that I am NOT an ogre, and I don't
have the least desire to be smashed.  THEN, we'll get along fine. -- N'Orleans Nora

Big Bad Daddy Jr -- I figure you need to grow about a foot before you can carry that
off.  Start training your SZ. -- Galveston Gilly
P.S.  Stretching exercises, and if that doesn't work, the rack.

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
