                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TOBIR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with TIPPI TURTLE?  He 
actually beat THE DOGHOUSE's CHICHI-HOOEY, and walked away with 8 more points from 
the fight.  WOOFER was reminded on the sands why LITTLE DEVIL is Duelmaster.  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, BINKIE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  CRACK BABY of THE DEATH SQUAD knows how to pick 'em.  It 
challenged ANDILLIA of THE DOGHOUSE who is up by 22.  Now was this a wise move?  
CRACK BABY perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it lost to ANDILLIA and ended up 
with 31 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  So THE DEATH SQUAD sent LARG GENIUS - 11 WT to the Dark Arena. 
Big deal.  Plenty more fighters where LARG GENIUS - 11 WT came from.  Dime a dozen... 
Now, Spyreporters...  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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

Cardnal -- Well, you rapted me a good one there.  Ouch. -- Chichi-Hooey
P.S.  I do like a redheaded woman.  So fiery!

Binkie -- Well, of COURSE I barked!  Any dog would have in such a situation.  It's
instinctive. -- Woofer
P.S.  And then, I bit.  That, too, is first nature to a dog.  A bark, and then a
bite.

Tantrum -- No.  I don't care how upset you get, you do NOT get to play with the drain
cleaner. -- Andillia
P.S.  On second thought, maybe you SHOULD play with it, and then I won't have to
WORRY about you any more.

Sergeant -- (mournful look)  Gosh. -- Ghost of Wurf

Pamper Packer -- Use 'em as bandages. -- White Fang
P.S.  No, seriously.  Think how well they'll soak up the blood!

Hope -- That's what good dogs do.  Warm the couch, and the foot of the bed, and all
those places that you don't want to be cold. -- Woofer

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
