                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RIZTAB to see 
what's new.  Like, DREAMERS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot 
by BLUE NOTE!  Way to go BLUE NOTE!  MVP award for CHARLENE?  SWEET MAGIC's proud of 
her after beating FRED THE UNREADY and getting 6 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  TATUM's match with NELLI POLITANA cost him a loss of 1 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ELEVENTH should let TAFFY be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SWEET MAGIC 
was RIZTAB's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep 
dark secret why TORTURED's been avoiding SWEET MAGIC so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  Can SWEET MAGIC's GRUBSTAKER be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Eleventh -- Well, damn.  I tried to stop you at the tenth, but you just kept going.
-- Taffy

Aesara -- Face it, you're biased.  You are absolutely opposed to striped ice cream.
I know there are people like you, people who only want one flavor at a time, but I
just can't understand WHY.  Striped ice cream is fun! -- Nelli Politana

Ah, a standby!  Always good, even if he did cry for licorice.  Nasty stuff, licorice.
-- Charlene

Tatum -- You can overpower me any time, guy. -- Sugar Baby

Martyr -- I wasn't going to let you do that.  Be a martyr?  Bah, nonsense! --
