     Well, what are you looking at, DULLENS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BUICK BADGER win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BUICK BADGER 
beat SOFT ROCK and SOFT ROCK lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as ROBERTO LEATHAM stays 
top dog in the city.  Arthur's Last Stand, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
DULLENS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  HOUSE OF CARDS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SATAN'S KINGDOMS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, RAMSHORN was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the DULLENS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Inmate of Arkham -- I can see why they tossed you out.  Too squirrely even for them.
-- Ramshorn

Cassie Elizabeth -- I'm not inclined to let a woman get away with too much, when I
can supply a curb. -- Blackbuck

Locked Room -- Yeah?  Then how'd you get out of it? -- Stormbird

Tex Impersonator -- That's the problem with the high-heeled boots.  If you don't
practice with them, you trip all over the place.  Not that I mind having you on the
ground at my feet. -- Soft Rock

Buttercup -- Don't give yourself airs too soon, wench. -- Little Fox

Arenamaster Tybor -- I know that.  Doesn't stop the City Fathers from selling 'em,
though. -- Ramshorn

We congratulate Roberto Leatham on his graduation.  It hasn't taken a minute longer
than required, but somehow it seems like a very long time we've been waiting for
