                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KOLACT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, JAY-Z, since VIKINGS took 
top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DAGG AXELJORG win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
TEMPE POSTMASTER beat 55 IN A 54 and 55 IN A 54 lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as HREIDMAR THE RED takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very 
good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't 
you, KOLACT?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
VIKINGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like THE MENTORS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, PURPLE HOOTER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  SAUSAGE STUFFING challenged 
down 18 against THIRSTY THUGS' SALTY DOG.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will 
KOLACT accept this sort of tacky behavior?  SAUSAGE STUFFING beating SALTY DOG.  The 
insult, the....yech!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
