                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RIZTAB once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, WHO DA 
MAN?.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with AMMONIUS?  He actually beat 
SWEET MAGIC's SUGAR BABY, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at SWEET MAGIC.  SUGAR BABY lost 11 points to AMMONIUS.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe SUGAR BABY will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure RIZTAB is excited 
about TATUM, the new Duelmaster from BLUE NOTE.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
SWEET MAGIC.  The bums at WHO DA MAN? couldn't face the challenges from SWEET MAGIC!  
No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, NELLI POLITANA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

A lot of people are looking for striped ice cream righ now.  People do that in times
of stress.  It shows their good sense. -- Nelli Politana, most challenged

Yoda Man -- I can see where you are feeling stressed.  Is your manager talking about
fighting in the dark?  Striped ice cream won't prevent that, it it feels good going
down. -- Nelli Politana

Sucker Punch -- Maybe so, but you're going to feel strange when you try to wash off
the cream cheese frosting.  It's a new recipe I'm trying. -- Phillia Fox

Ammonius -- Sir!  Not HERE! -- Sugar Baby
P.S.  Maybe we should get a room.

Coltrane -- That blueness, today, at least, is probably due to advancing frostbite.
You need to have that taken care of IMMEDIATELY. -- Charlene

Hypatia -- Ur, hm.  Not a dream I've considered before.  Maybe you should tell me
more? -- Grubstaker
