                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KOLACT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-1 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, THE MOONDOGS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud. 
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see DEMON win a fight and gain 16 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DEMON beat CIRIC and CIRIC lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like KOLACT has some guts at least, CHAGAN the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  PHLEGM challenged KOLACT's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may be getting bland, as 
CHAGAN stays top dog in the city.  Don Corleone's, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From KOLACT's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  KOLACT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
ABOMINATION the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like VIKINGS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  A big yahoo goes out to SIMOON TERRAT this 
turn, for revenging THE MOONDOGS' bloodfeud against ABOMINATION's warrior OBAMA CARE. 
Heh, heh, heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in KOLACT to get a drink than Don Corleone's!  
Any suggestions?  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

Hey Kolact!  I'm back!!! -- Chase mgr, Abomination

     And it's good to see you here.

Chagan -- Get matched up with the DM on my first round back.  I think you got lucky,
really lucky.  Care to try again? -- Phlegm

Tremors -- Awww, did I hand you your first loss?!?  Boo Hoo!!!  I love it myself. --
Demon

Quin Rondo -- Can't win that way.  You're supposed to actually hit me if you have any
chance of winning. -- Goldilocks

Demon -- Definitely an abomination, but a dangerous one. -- Lia Hobern

Friday the 13th -- But, every time you appear, it means a Tuesday the 17th is sure to
follow in short order.  This is not bad. -- Moon-Eye
P.S.  Neither is it bacon.  I'm not getting the connection.

Footloose -- If that means you trample the bacon, I think I'll switch to ham. --
Lunelle Merrin

Flatliners -- Fatty bacon, definitely fatty.  And a tad rancid. -- Ferrin Mondor

Obama Care -- Well, that was embarrassing. -- Ghost of Quin Rondo

Chagan -- The thing is, we can't bear to see you go. -- the Moon Dogs
P.S.  Not that the Commission listens to us.

All -- I'm back!!! -- Chase, mgr Abomination

Vikings -- Thanks for the warm welcome.  Now can Chagan graduate already?!? -- Chase

Hagar -- My head is both bloodied and bowed, sir. -- Phlegm

Lia Hobern -- Thanks for the new attach skills.  I SHALL put them to good use. --
Demon

JFK -- Aren't you late for a meeting in Texas?  Thanks for all the learns.  Might
have to fight you again at that training rate. -- The Grinch

Flyleaf -- Hey it's good to know my shield still works.  Might have to get the
blacksmith to repair all the dents.  Or perhaps you were distracted by by beautiful
blonde hair? -- Goldilocks

Quin Rondo -- See I told you that socialized medicine is a killer. -- Obama Care

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
