                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What, I'm graduating?  Weird.  I don't feel ready.  I should probably stay here.
I don't feel up to a column, Golden Delicious.  Maybe... a two-by-four prop?
     So, Stoga Steel, I devastated you?  Good.  The image of myself as devastating
has great appeal.

                                   Sardo Grackel

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly WILLAF games.  RIPLEY BYRD caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 
18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GOLDPLATED put 
down TRICILLIAD, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has SARDO GRACKEL in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in WILLAF seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  WILLAF, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is EMOTIONAL PANTS, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been 
hard pressed to find any of GOLDEN GLADIATORS last week.  Busy avoiding EMOTIONAL 
PANTS?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani 
Sharp Eyes

L.P. Sardo Grackel -- Congratulations!  Out of the rat-race into the...? -- Midas and
The Golden Gladiators

Ripley Byrd -- Thanks for being my first.  I will always remember you. -- Goldplated

Fratsfa Slave -- Even for you I put on the charm.  It worked! -- Gold Charm

John Dere -- Thar's gold in them thar hills.  Yup. -- Pan For Gold

Billy Jack -- I am somewhat surprised at that outcome.  But, of course, I am quite
pleased with it. -- Gold Locket

It is always a pleasure to sell a Convicted Assassin a bridge.  Next I will be trying
used cars. -- Golden Gate Bridge

Way to go, Golden Gladiators!  I am proud of your come-back 5-0 last round.  Bonuses
for all! -- Midas

Sardo Grackel and Punny Animals -- Nice going, congratulations on the invite.  I am
so curious of you stats, Sardo, as I am trying to better my bashers.  Of course, I
hope to see one of my warriors ascend to the throne, beating you preferably. --
Coyote

Golden Gate Bridge -- "Pretty"?  That hardly seems appropriate as a description.  How
about striking?  Dramatic?  Or that bedrock of compliments to bridges:  sound and
useful? -- Billy Jack

Gold Locket -- I find you incredibly annoying.  But perhaps that's how it is with
registered beauties? -- Billy Jack

Pan for Gold -- What if I don't want to?  I'm thinking that pan would serve quite
well as a drip-catcher under my potted geranium. -- John Dere

Longing Leggings -- Unfortunately, I am a fallible human, and the legs so aboundantly
displayed in those leggings do tend to rouse longings.  Very awkward. -- Horus Mann

Goldplated -- No way I can fly with that weight on my wings. -- Ripley Byrd
