                             Notes from the arena champ.

Third time is a charm!  Crouching Tiger didn't crouch low enough and got hit by my
scimitar.  Ha!  Ha!  He sure doesn't teach very well:  in 3 fights, I've learned only
2 skills despite my 17 wit.  No challenges from me this turn.  Let's see if somebody
wants to sit in my chair.  Perhaps they could teach me some offensive skills, you
know, the kind people take offense to.  Anyway, time to go now. -- Fast Track

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, TEAM MARIO 
has advanced 8 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was ARENA FELINES 
who went from last turn's 665-499-63, to this week's record of 668-499-63.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for ALEX SCHIMMELFENNIG, who flew up 19 points in the rankings 
after mashing NOREEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was AGLIBOL, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with DREB 3.  Drawing on all of his experience as a 18-12-0 warrior, 
BLOOD BUD went for the Duelmastership against FAST TRACK this week.  It's a proud day 
for the BLOODSUCKERS stable, as their warrior, BLOOD BUD, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad TEAM  GNASTY?  Big bad TEAM 
GNASTY.  Big bad TEAM GNASTY.  RIZTAB's afraid of the big bad TEAM GNASTY.  Tra la la 
la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch POWERPUFF GIRLS' act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from TEAM GNASTY.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of DREB 3, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SHELLI went after BROPHY, who was higher by 
24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SHELLI bested BROPHY.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  For those of you who missed it, 
Death showed up, grabbed NOREEN by the ear and took her away to a place where she 
won't need a coat.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the 
arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the RIZTAB giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

AF Box Gnasty -- Old Danster'd rather been trampled by rampaging dieters. -- Dan

Pheonix -- My mates are saying, for me this ends phase one.  (whatever that means.
I'll check) Oh, that means we start phase two. -- Fen Boggle

Cat Tagious -- A growth spurt.  Right in the middle of our contest, too.  Here's to
the exceptionally young. -- Badger

Freaky Barber -- Just a little off the top, not the whole wig. -- Tonya

Bat Manuel -- How about Bat'r's up? -- Wax

Mario -- And they call me mad!  Try running some laps. -- Kragor the Mad

Fenboggle -- No fair!  I didn't get my turn. -- Pheonix

Socrates -- Wow!  If I actually hit something I win.  Learn to dodge. -- Krusk

Kaja Rang -- That's funny, you didn't fight like that against Pheonix. -- Lilliana

Cat Scan -- Scan all you want, boy, there's no mice here!  (nasty chuckle)  We eat
'em.  And we eat CATS, too.  In a wine sauce. -- Noreen

Bass Reeves -- That's a new one on me.  Could you fill in some background? -- Jorja

Bass Reeves -- I'm not interested in your background.  It's the foreground--the
sword, you know--that held MY attention. -- Autumn Leaves
P.S.  Okay, good fight.  Right up till you won....

Shelli -- And so you are a pretty little thing.  Well, "little" for a Shew, anyway.
You need to be careful, because pretty little things aren't safe on the street at
night around here lately.  Never go out alone. -- Alourin

Thunder Cat -- Gods. -- Tillerita
P.S.  It wasn't the noise so much as, er, the rest of it.

Garfield -- I hope you plan to spare us Snow Meow. -- Jorja, who had the misfortune
to see one episode

Snozz Wangers -- Ugh. -- Sugar Jane

Tonya -- Okay, agreed.  But still.... -- Sugar Jane

Sugar Jane -- Yeah, I'm sick like that.  Don't get me wrong.  I really like to win,
but that chocolate milk is so dang rich and tasty! -- Gratch

Hamster Girl -- I never did like Hamster, all furry and mean.... -- Poison Sumac
