                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUKAL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with DIESEL?  He actually 
beat BUTCHER & SINGER's STUFFED HASHBROWN, and walked away with 25 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at ZUKAL while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber 
GALILEO.  He lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What 
a role model for ZUKAL's young 'uns!  WATSON becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to 
fight no more!  I'm sure ZUKAL is excited about ODDLY ELEGANT, the new Duelmaster 
from DEVIATION.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ZUKAL 
thinks QUEEN and their 111-69-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  The bums at DEVIATION couldn't face the challenges from QUEEN!  No excuse for 
that!   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Who will dare fight 
CHEESE CAKE, after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and 
has he points) I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in their place.  I 
guess you could say DEVIATION'KWEE ZUN ART did just that.  Right BLUE MOON?  ORION 
STONE found himself really over-matched when he faced KWEE ZUN ART.  ORION STONE 
found himself grossly dead at the end of the match.  How long have I been here?  I 
got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
