                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, another Sentinel on the throne.  A guy could like the view from here.
Pensacolita looked good up here, but I just felt the time was right.  Now I just need
to figure out which of these footballers might be around next turn.  The Babes have
been very generous teachers for me.  Hopefully whoever I get in this next turn will
be so as well.

This is a short column, if I am back next turn I will try and do better.

Oliander, Duelmaster of Sunset

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in BONSUR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  The guys at BEACH BABES like 
really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for 
PALMETTA PATTY?  BEACH BABES' proud of her after beating BONSUR BUNNY BABE and 
getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BONSUR BUNNY BABE got smashed by 
PALMETTA PATTY, and lost 17 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
OLIANDER stopped PENSACOLITA dead in hers tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
BONSUR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     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 
905-630-30 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are SENTINELS?  
WASTELAND II, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is PALMETTA PATTY popular, or what?  She was challenged the most 
in all of BONSUR!  She's got a 8-9-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BONSUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  WHOLLY MOLLY really fought hard against LORRIE.  That'll teach 
CHURCH LADIES not to go and kill any of AMEN!'s guys again, huh!  Fight, fight, 
fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  BONSUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Nora -- That time I got the win!  Perhaps it was the wind sprints I have been doing.
Still not a great show, but it was good enough.  Still, I'm not sure that weapon is
going to see action again. -- Neanderthal

Footballers -- Back again?  You can really throw a wrench into a guy's plans.  When
you have everything planned out thinking you know who is around you in the standings
and then, wham!, out of nowhere comes someone new.  No good comes of that. -- Erasmus

Patty -- What was it Nora suggested to Chios--wind sprints and marathon work?
Perhaps you should consider some such work? -- Epee

Oliander -- That was, in most ways, well done, and I salute you for it and will make
a new batch of smash to celebrate.  But...couldn't you have taught ME anything, after
all the work I put in teaching YOU behind the cabana?  Do you forget your beginning
so easily? -- Pensacolita

Neanderthal -- That someone with your name should be an elf gives a whole new angle
on the history of the human races, doesn't it?  Perhaps this needs to be investigated
further.  Drop by the cabana and we can lay out a plan of study. -- N'Orleans Nora
P.S.  Yes, of course I remember Obrojobo, and quite fondly and at times desolately.
But you're a bird in the hand, as they say, and I don't see any bushes.

Bartez -- (scowling)  I don't see why we need to IMPORT footballers.  The gods know
there are plenty of them around already. -- Long Beach Lila
P.S.  Running up and down the beach kicking sand in people's faces.

Epee Mystique -- It is TOTALLY unfair that you should be taller than me and, you
know, slim, where I'm just kind of stubby and prickly.  I don't prickle on purpose,
you know.  It's my nature, and the product of an unkind fate.  Hmm, maybe if I
trained my SZ... -- Palmetta Patty

Bonsur Babe Rocks -- Like anybody wants a rocky beach!  Try lying around on one
working on your tan, or surfing into one, or ANY kind of beach thing.  The only good
thing about a rocky beach is that those darned Imported Footballers can't kick sand
in people's faces on it.  I dunno if that's enough. -- Rose o' the Reef

Erasmus (and Oliander) -- Now you have three Imported Footballers at the top, and I
bet you wish it was some of us! -- Pensacolita
P.S.  Meet me at the second blanket past the cabana and I'll have something special
for you.

Our congratulations to Zero 3156, Sugarbeet, and Betterthanever for their tourney
victor status. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
