                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I still have my doubts about any food that flaunts itself with a name like
"delicious."  So often that is just hype.  But Golden Delcious is a tough cookie.
Oatmeal, with nuts and bits of dried apple, maybe just a touch of honey....  Rather
tasty, when you get down to it.

                                   Sardo Grackel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for WILLAF.  Like, MAXIMUM RESULTS had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GOLDEN GLADIATORS!  Way to go 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS!  MVP award for GALEN?  MAXIMUM RESULTS' proud of him after beating 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  RIPLEY BYRD's 
match with GOLDPLATED cost him a loss of 11 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster 
is being unfair?  I think SARDO GRACKEL should let STOGA STEEL be Duelmaster for a 
while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of EMOTIONAL PANTS must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been 
accepting many fights from EMOTIONAL PANTS, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  WILLAF is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
