                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARUAK CITY once again!  Hmmmph!  I always thought COLORIFIC was 
an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, KRILL CAVALRY's 
4th moved them up to 2-3-0 place.  THE HITCHHIKERS showed ARUAK CITY what they were 
made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with FORD 
PREFECT?  He actually beat CANNIBALZ's DOOM, and walked away with 12 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at ARUAK CITY while they watched M. CHARDINEE clobber 
UDDER.  She lost 26 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as she might, TIRLA DANCER wasn't good enough at persuading MINUTE STEAK to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!  
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ARUAK CITY thinks IMMORTALS 
and their 989-1153-79 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BULLDOGS ain't reelin'!  IMMORTALS' mad!  
What do people see in DOOM?  Hers 3-10-1?  CANNIBALZ ain't talkin', but she's got 24 
points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that HOUND 
gets in.  He fights people like EQUALIZER, 10 points below.  I thought HOUND showed 
great skill and promise when he bested EQUALIZER.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Warriors of ARUAK CITY unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

The Bulldogs and friends will be "unavailable off-line" for ten days or so.  Skipping
personals and DMColumn (if that lucky) this turn. -- Kennelworth
P.S.  The Duelmaster still gets to drink free at The Bulldog Inn

Marvin -- The thing about hitchhiking is that you put yourself at the mercy not only
of other people, but of technology.  Never trust technology more complicated than a
knife or a towel. -- Berlam Foote

Hound -- Why are YOU crying?  You won. -- Irvin Flete

Golden Tongue -- You probably need to take something for that.  Liver supplements,
maybe. -- Tirla Dancer
P.S.  Although I've never heard of a jaundiced tongue before.  Odd.

White Hair -- The reflections are blinding, I assure you. -- Corvo Black
P.S.  Too bad one of us isn't a woman, or I'd say we were made for each other.

Zaphod Beeblebrox -- Have you considered getting your name bobbed?  It's a mouthful.
-- Harline Flete

Swirvin' Irvin -- Taking a nap seems like an excellent idea.  Cats and dogs both
understand that better than people do. -- Irvin Flete

Our congratulations to Hound. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry
