                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in WILLAF!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, PUNNY AMINALS, but 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS was just too good to be stopped.  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, MAXIMUM RESULTS!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 4th!  MVP award 
for MORGAR?  MAXIMUM RESULTS' proud of him after beating SIMON ST. JOHN and getting 
14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  PAN FOR GOLD got smashed by BILLY JACK, 
and lost 11 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome GOLDEN DELICIOUS.  Aren't GOLDEN GLADIATORS proud.  (Oh, 
my.) Who was the wiseguy that said WILLAF's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of MAXIMUM RESULTS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are FAR TRAVELERS?  
MAXIMUM RESULTS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can MAXIMUM RESULTS' STOGA STEEL be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  How cruel!  EMOTIONAL PANTS heartlessly sent its to CRANKY  CORDUROY 
certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 11-14-0 bad or something?  Hey!  Quit laughing! 
Just because SILLY SUIT had 13-12-0 was no reason for EMOTIONAL PANTS to send it to 
the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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

What?  The Far Travelers are bullies?  Well, I don't know about that, because they
seem like a pretty nice and fair bunch to us.  Glad to compete with them.  Yes,
indeed. -- Midas of Golden Gladiators

Billy Jack -- All I can say is (like on that TV show--Family Feud) "good answer; good
answer."  You guys are definitely punny. -- Golden Gate Bridge (thinking about going
into used cars)
P.S.  I just love doing battle with you--weapons or words.

You see one Horus, you've seen 'em all.  (wink) -- Pan For Gold

Sally C. Shelley and the Punny Aminal crew -- I truly apologize for the killing.  I
did not want THAT.  (Sigh)  May she fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. --
Gold Locket

Indeed, Jorja, we are sorry for causing the loss.  Mea culpa. -- Midas

Silly Suit -- Perhaps your suit needs to be better-made-armor? -- Pan For Gold

Convicted Assassin -- I would say you tasted good, but I don't go in for that kind of
stuff. -- Golden Delicious

     I should hope not! -- Mirzul of Illis, Assassin by Trade

Katarina?  Again?  Great warriors find a way to stay on top.  Kudos to the
Duelmistress. -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

No help for it, time to do personals, past time, nearly.  So, here goes:

Siegfried -- Aha!  This works for me.  May our encounters ever be so. -- Sardo
Grackel

Golden Gate -- You're making me feel gruff. -- Billy Jack

Gold Locket -- Oh, for pete's sake!  That was totally unnecessary. -- Ghost of Sally
C. Shelley
P.S.  Jorja says she won't even TRY to enroll a replacement at the moment, because
"all the dumb wannabes are at the tourney, dying as rookies."

Longing Leggings -- Ah, any kin to Sassy Shorts?  Or Dull Dungarees? -- Horus Mann

Why would one persist in beggint when he could be out working in the fields and
earning an honest wage? -- John Dere

Coyote -- How come we never get a chance to fight losers like Balomir?  We could've
used the win! -- the Punny Animals
