                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  WILLAF needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  NOBLE ON FIRE like 
really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for GOLD 
BULLION?  GOLDEN GLADIATORS' proud of it after beating ARMAGEDDON'S REACH and getting 
23 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ARMAGEDDON'S REACH got smashed by GOLD 
BULLION, and lost 19 points!  What a putz!  PURZ! fights so hard to be Duelmaster, 
then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said she was a genius...  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  PUNNY AMINALS was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 508-722-16 record really that scary?  I don't know what NOBLE ON FIRE's 
been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from PUNNY AMINALS, 
that's fer sher.  Like, is JOLT popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of WILLAF!  He's got a 3-3-1, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Yamabushi Manager -- Thank you for your very kind words and comments.  Where were
you?  If you had competed, then there would have been five teams, and the other four
managers would have had more wins.  We miss you! -- Midas

Chauncy -- Wow!  You topped my stadium.  Ouch! -- Golden Dome

Dangerous Criminal?!  I am baaaaaaaad! -- 24 Carat (feeling soft)

Penny Lopez -- What would I and my 1-2-0 teammates have done without you? -- Gold
Bullion

Hoping you all did well in The Mailer.... -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Golden Dome -- Very convenient, I needed a mirror to fix my hair by. -- Chauncy

Rainmaker -- Just what I do NOT need, because I've got laundry to do.  But after
that...go for it!  I can think of some places I'd like to see flooded out. -- Penny
Lope

I never figured out the deal with the Fratsfa Slave.  He's a Karnhorn, so he isn't a
Fratsfan that got captured, right?  Was he captured BY them, and contaminated, so
that even when he got away and back home, he had to stay a slave?  Or what? -- Donroe
Minh

Gold Bullion -- I'll remember next time to bring a Brinks truck to haul you away
with.  You're way too heavy to carry. -- Penny Lopez

Kinyobi -- Bad luck for you they wouldn't let you bring your light-saber into the
arena.  God for me, though, all those skills!  Wow.  You must know lots to teach so
well on your first fight. -- Kildilli Dall

Wow, there was someone in this arena who was NOT one of our teammates who was one-
four, and we didn't get a chance to fight him?  Bummer. -- the Punny Animals

Midas -- Yep.  Not the first arena, but always a sort of thrill. -- Jorja, taking
thrills where found, and very few questions asked

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
