                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  NO-HALF STEPPING showed TOBIR what they 
were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  What's with 
ABBOTT?  He actually beat THE DOGHOUSE's TIPAR KUROO, and walked away with 25 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE DOGHOUSE.  GINKOR lost 13 points to 
WESTON.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GINKOR will provide more easy wins...  
Try as he might, SCRUFF wasn't good enough at persuading SHOWSTOPPER to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  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 
THE DOGHOUSE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at HIGH SCHOOL PROM ain't 
reelin'!  THE DOGHOUSE's mad!   
     Warriors of TOBIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  TIPAR KUROO, with 
his forgettable 14-11-0,  was slain by ABBOTT in a forgettable match.  THE DOGHOUSE 
didn't seem to mind very much.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor. 
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

"The signal is given for the duel to begin"?  That's good.  I wouldn't have PAID for
it, so it has to be a gift.  But what if it wasn't a gift, and I wouldn't pay for it
either, does that mean there'd be no duel, we'd just stand out there and stare at
each other?  I do "stare at each other" fairly well, when I put my mind to it. --
Scruff, taking idle notes
P.S.  Speaking of this and that, I wonder if the introductory sentence, which is now
fairly well established as being the same throughout an arena's fights on a given day
but not to be set rigidly for the arena on EVERY day, is in any way linked with the
chosen spy reporter?  I note (for myself, and any others with the same sort of idle
minds, that today we had The Unknown Spyreoirter,  An ass, but let's see if he's a
predictable ass.

Showstopper -- Ah, right, I just noticed that there was a fight below that
introductory sentence.  Good fight.  It was my pleasure to hand off to you.  Any
time. -- Scruff

Lrb -- How can that be a name?  Even your fans find it hard to use that as a rallying
and encouraging yell. -- Tipar Kuroo

Clown -- Ha ha, very funny.  Don't you ever WASH your trousers?  They taste AWFUL and
will probably make me sick. -- Ginkor
P.S.  They'll probably make YOU sick, too.

Stewart -- Er.  Ah.  The urge to give advice is ALMOST overwhelming.  I hadn't
expected that.  Um.  Good fight. -- Echanosarah

Bombay -- Hey, look, I've been in fights with bigger and meaner dogs than you.  Don't
push me so hard, or I'll have to demonstrate, which would be rude or something. --
Whole Mutt

Four-one?  This is a very strange result. -- Jorja, The Doghouse

Darias le Plume, Trustworthy Scribe -- Whatever made you think I cared about my
registration?  I've been evading dogcatchers all my life. -- Whole Mutt
