                                      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 MABUSHI win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FISHER 
KING beat VASQUEZ and VASQUEZ lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZUKAL may be getting bland, as SHADY SHIPWRIGHT stays 
top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, RIPLEY of SPACEMARINES has added the final loss to hers 5-9-2.  Tee hee!  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Shady Shipwright -- Ah... good fight?  Those grapes were sour anyway?  Seriously, I
consider myself lucky to continue alive.  Not that you're a killer, but turquoise is
notoriously fragile and easily cracked, you know.  I just have to hang on and hope
for the best. -- Bisbee Blue
P.S.  Of course, since turquoise is also said to bring good luck, that best might...
MIGHT be good indeed.  We'll have to see.

Drake -- I had this image of a duck with a green head, but you aren't a duck, and
your hair is red.  Confusing. -- Fisher King
P.S.  It's been a confusing week.

Vasquez -- I'll blow you down, eh?  But gently, because it isn't that often I meet a
cute chick in the arena. -- Norther

Sponge Bobbett -- What?  I don't find you in my dictionary. -- Bluestocking
P.S.  Which means you can't be real, because everything real is in the dictionary.

Ripley -- I don't believe it.  I WON'T believe it. -- Bitterman
P.S.  Okay, I believe it.  Given your greater experience, I suppose it isn't so
insulting as it might be.
