                             Notes from the arena champ.

     And again, I am matched with Longing Leggings.  Is this a not-very-subtle
attempt at matchmaking on the part of the handicapper?  Are the stewards betting with
the bookies that sooner or later LL will defeat me?  Are we trapped in the depths of
Small Arena Syndrome?  Inquiring Minds will think about this tomorrow, tonight
they're going out to a fish fry.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of WILLAF!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  PUNNY AMINALS were a bunch 
of dogs after GOLDEN GLADIATORS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with SNAKE?  He actually beat GOLDEN GLADIATORS' GOLD DUBLOON, and walked away 
with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SERPENTS HOLD 114 while they 
watched SNAKE clobber GOLD DUBLOON.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  I'm sure WILLAF is excited about SAD SLACKS, the new 
Duelmaster from EMOTIONAL PANTS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MAXIMUM RESULTS.  The bums at GOLDEN GLADIATORS couldn't face the challenges from 
MAXIMUM RESULTS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in ANACONDA?  Its 6-4-0?  
SERPENTS HOLD 114 ain't talkin', but it's got 59 points.   
     Warriors of WILLAF unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Emotional Pants -- I send out a salute for your fine Team On The Move performance,
and for the fact that Sad Slacks now has Gold Locket's number.  Kudos! -- Midas

Billy Jack -- Duelmaster!  Congrats again. -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Sad Slacks -- Phbttttttt!  You used to be easy.  Now, I guess I am. -- Gold Locket

Horus Mann -- Peroxide?!  You Cad!  Why, I use only the best, uh, well, a gal has her
secrets, you know? -- Gold Charm
P.S.  But it was no secret who won THAT fight was it?  Tee hee.

Rotilla -- In the battle of the BAds, I am the BAddest! -- Gold Dubloon

Malcorn Insurgent -- I was quite pleased to add to your general unrest and
disappointments.  You can always count on me. -- Good As Gold

Gold Charm -- My dear girl!  If you *insist* on accessorizing everything with gold,
you will, inevitably, have "off" days.  Sometimes gold is *not* the best choice in
personal adornment, especially in excess.  It looks... tacky. -- John Dere
P.S.  And I did warn you about the peroxide, did I not?  There is absolutely
*nothing* wrong with not being blonde!  Sultry sable has much to recommend it.

Gold Charm -- The stewards called your win "luck," but it looked to me like
"favorable style match" (for you). -- Horus Mann
P.S.  It would have been an act of generosity that would have reflected well upon you
if you'd taught me a skill or two.

Why would anybody bother to convict an assassin?  Why not just arrange for him to
suffer a fatal accident in some dark alley?  That seems like it would be appropriate.
-- Ripley Byrd

Lonely Handmedowns -- I should think so!  You're a veritable rag-bag, all tatters,
tears, and poorly done patches.  It's ridiculous.  Unsightly. -- John Dere

Galen -- What a perfect gentleman you are!  I think you should come up and see me
some time. -- Dee Nile
