                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see POUTY LIPS win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat BISBEE BLUE and BISBEE BLUE lost 17 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as KEEL 
HAULER stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ZUKAL?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  PAPERBOYS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like HOT STUFF avoided them the most this turn.  
What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, THROUGH THE WINDOW was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

incredible that you're still here. -- Blhu Murther, sulking a little (it's the heat) (or
the humidity)
