                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUKAL!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for THROUGH THE 
WINDOW?  PAPERBOYS' proud of him after beating BLUE STREAK and getting 17 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  JED TARRAN DAPP's match with KATANA cost him a loss of 
11 points!  Was that a tear I saw in STRONG BAD's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't FREE WHEEL fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
