     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BONSUR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for AMEN!, whose 0-2-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 8th.  
WASTELAND II stable has parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, LONG 
BEACH LILA fought ERASMUS and gained 23 points and contributed to BEACH BABES' 1-4-0. 
PIRES has lost to SILICONE, falling 15 points, while helping make IMPORTED 
FOOTBALLERS a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
SOLSKJAER remains BONSUR's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred? 
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is 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 SENTINELS.  BONSUR, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
HUNTSMAN from SENTINELS was BONSUR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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--

Solskjaer -- Yeah, fighting a few Babes helped, but I beat everyone at the top during
my reign until you stopped the string.  I defeated more than just Babes.  Considering
your team spent most of last turn avoiding my team, and I am the only one within
distance of most of you, I think that says something. But rather than argue about it,
I think I'll just go take up residence on the Isle. -- Huntsman

Fatality -- If I were to argue, I would submit you as partial proof of the above
claim. -- Huntsman

Nora -- Well, at the very least, we have established that you are, indeed, not an
ogre nor in the mood to get smashed. Nicely done.  I guess I need to go looking for
some real ogres. -- Ogresmasher

Nistelroy -- You had to go on and ruin a nice little winning streak, didn't you? --
Neanderthal

Chaos -- Can I blame experience levels for this one as well?  Ouch.  Nice fight. --
Obrojobo

Pires -- Don't rethink all this gladiator stuff.  Just practice.  And make better
challenges. -- Moses

Solskjaer -- Thanks for the skills.  But I'm still sending you my infirmary bill. --
Slammer

Henri -- How appropriate that one with such a name should be an elf.  It's YOU. --
Sandy Shore

Ogresmasher -- Haven't we done this before?  Me or one of my teammates, anyway.  Not
an ogre amongst us.  But if you find some, we'll be glad to hold your coat while you
smash away. -- N'Oreleans Nora

Big Bad Daddy Jr -- As short as ever, but you HAVE worked on your looming.  That's
good.  Very effective.  Go for it. -- Galveston Gilly

Artis -- I guess it's that "lady" stuff that does it, hmm?  But I never could figure
out when to wear white gloves, and if I tried, they ALWAYS got dirty right away. --
Pensacolita

A Cult Member?  Ridiculous! -- Long Beach Lila

Pires -- It does?  Good.  That makes it more mysterious. -- Pensacolita
P.S.  I thought I was just from a smaller version of Pensacola, you know.  But hey,
the caffeine works.  I'll take it.

Van Nistleroy -- I'm unique. -- Long Beach Lila
P.S.  Actually, my experience with beaches is limited.  Comes of living in the middle
of a continent.

Our congratulations to Huntsman. -- the Beach Babes
