                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RIZTAB once again!  Woof!  DREAMERS were a bunch of dogs after 
ALL HALLOW'S EVE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  It seems so 
recently people were saying BLUE NOTE was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-2 moved them 
up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with MILES DAVIS?  He actually beat 
GUESSING GAME's WHO, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at GUESSING GAME.  WHERE lost 11 points to PRODICUS.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe WHERE will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did BLACK HEART 
wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for DREAMERS' outstanding member, Duelmaster CRITIAS.  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
RIZTAB thinks SWEET MAGIC and their 697-1092-26 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at ALL HALLOW'S EVE 
ain't reelin'!  SWEET MAGIC's mad!  What do people see in ANTIPHON?  His 13-7-1?  
DREAMERS ain't talkin', but he's got 59 points.   
     Warriors of RIZTAB unite.  You have only your games to lose!  WHO, with its 
forgettable 10-9-0,  was killed by MILES DAVIS in a forgettable match.  GUESSING GAME 
didn't seem to mind very much.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger 
every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
