                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZUKAL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, RED FURY had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SERPENTS HOLD 3!  Way to go 
SERPENTS HOLD 3!  MVP award for WILKERSON?  BLUE MOON's proud of him after beating 
STING and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  STING's match with 
WILKERSON cost him a loss of 22 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
RECOIL stopped BICYCLE RACE dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of RED FURY must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  
What kind of warriors are DEVIATION?  RED FURY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can PAPERBOYS' THROUGH THE WINDOW be 
more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ZUKAL is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
