                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I guess I have to say something, so I will confirm that this is my ninth title.
Better to be a Purple Pig than a Purple Passion, I think.
     Purple People Eater (the worst purple I know) is going wild of late, it seems.
His Colorifics don't have it, and he has always been jealous of Our Animal Farm w/l
percentage.  He thinks he is a far better manager than Mino.  Pshaw!
     The young Crushing K-9 manager continues to show his stuff.  I wonder if we can
get him to play on the office football team?
     Enough.  Valentine's Day has passed.  (No one sent me a card.)  April Fool's Day
is soon.  (I will pay them back.)
          Purple Pig, Duelmaster IX

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARUAK CITY!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for 
BULLETPROOF MONK?  LUROCIANS EXTREME's proud of him after beating GOLDEN TONGUE and 
getting 73 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  GOLDEN TONGUE got smashed by 
BULLETPROOF MONK, and lost 26 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause 
he's Number One!  IRVIN FLETE knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  PURPLE PIG stopped IRVIN FLETE dead in his 
tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE HITCHHIKERS was ARUAK CITY's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are ANIMAL FARM?  THE 
HITCHHIKERS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can COLORIFIC's PURPLE PASSION be more popular than me?  She 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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARUAK CITY is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Congratulations again, Purple Pig.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

And, Jorja, no worry about Purple Pig getting sloshed (or slopped) and giving a bad
name to The Bulldog Inn.  Mino keeps him on a tight leash.  (A BIG, but short,
leash.) -- Kennelworth

Sensei -- I am saying "woof woof" but I want to make sure it comes out "ouch ouch."
Kudos. -- Woof Woof

Shomoe -- Your partner whipped me last time, but turnaround is fair play, don't you
think? -- Cowabunga
P.S.  I'll just bet you don't know where "cowabunga" was made famous?  Ask your Dad,
that famous Florida football defensive coach.  But, then, maybe even he is too young?
On TV many years ago, Buffalo Bob was the human host of The Howdy Doody Hour and
Buffalo Bob's favorite exclamation was "cowabunga!"

Volgon Jeltz -- Maybe you aren't getting it?  That was MY challenge.  Or maybe I'm
just not getting it and you are faster and better than I am?  (sigh) -- Bull Moose
(and if you have never heard a moose sigh, it is a loud noise!)

Hey, hey, hey.  A Furry Fury sighting.  Welcome back, Grimm.  Glad to see you again.
-- Kennelworth

And, speaking of that, it looks like Coffee Wars is doing some "prepping". Good luck
to them. -- Kennelworth

Berlam -- Well, I enjoyed it! -- Cowlick

Irvin Flete -- I just have to take them any way I can get them.  Otherwise, I would
be... Dogmeat

Well done, young Manager Bulldog.  Keep those Canines a'crushing.  Kudos on your fine
start. -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Heart And Soul Of Andoria awaits. -- Kennelworth

Ahoy ye, young Bulldog o' Crushin' K-9's.  Aye.  This'n ole minataur bea pirate,
bloody straight.  Careful, now, ye don't hafta walk yon plank. -- Mino of Animal Farm

Dora -- Ha, ha.  That was cluck, cluck, cluck, not pluck, pluck, pluck.  I needed
that win. -- Cherry Chicken

Damme fine!  Me pig!  Duelmaster champeen agin!  Aye. -- Mino

Marvin -- Now tht was either a lucky or a fine win for me.  Let's call it both. --
Rose Rooster

Arthur Dent -- Well, however I did that, I will take it.  Wow!  I'm flying high. --
Purple Pelican

Tirla -- I had fun.  With you gone, who will dance with me in the slop? -- Pirple
Pig, DM IX

A 2-3!  An embarassingly worthless 2-3?!  You Colorifics are trying my patience!  8-6
in the last three rounds while that cheap pirate and his critters goes 9-3?!  2-3!?
Black Eye, Golden Tongue, Red-Eye, you are all bums! -- Purple People Eater, Proud
Colorific Manager (checking the phone number and address of The Dark Arena)

Hah, PPE!  You called me a coward the last two turns, but I challenged and beat that
mean Sasher.  I did. -- Yellow Belly, Proud Colorific

Hey, boss, that Kung-Fu Master weren't no problem fer me.  Nah. -- Purple Passion,
Proud Colorific

Now my K-9's are 73.  :)  WOOF, Great start! -- Bulldog, Manager of Crushing K-9's

Bulldog -- If your dogs chase my cavalry horses, they're going to get kicked!
Cavalry horses aren't known for their patience, you know. -- Jorja, manager Krill
Cavalry
P.S.  They aren't anti-dog, but no barking and nipping at the heels!
P.P.S.  The gladiators on this team, however, are not horses.  They just ride 'em.

Dogmeat -- Yeah, but knowing cats and how cussed picky they are, they might decline.
-- Irvin Flete

Kennelworth -- Thanks. -- Tirla Dancer
P.S.  And Mino.

Purple Pig -- Actually, I think I'll go home to Krill and raise horses. -- Tirla
Dancer

Black Eye -- No, you're all on the surface.  Heart of gold, most likely.  It's the
Black HEART that I'd worry about. -- Corvo Black

Golden Tongue -- Augh!  You should be pulled out by your roots! -- Harline Flete

Purple Passion -- It was a game?  Then, no.  I'm not into games at all. -- Irvin
Flete

Purple Pig -- It isn't your victory that was unbelievable, it's that it took you four
minutes to achieve it. -- Tirla Dancer
P.S.  Or maybe that it took ONLY four minutes?  I'm not clear on which angle is
appropriate here.

Dogmeat -- Huh, is that what it was?  I thought it was ground beef. -- Irvin Flete

Darth Donut -- It was the powdered sugar.  I'm a sucker for that. -- Harline Flete

Cowlick -- The only reason that fight lasted three minutes is that you wouldn't get
your sloppy tongue off me long enough for me to surrender! -- Berlam Foote

Cringing Coyote -- I never did like elves.  You guys make me feel inadequate. --
Corvo Black
P.S.  Of course, so do humans, dwarves, orcs, werewolves....  Being a golem is hard.
