                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SLIDE TO HELL win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GOLDEN GLOBE 
beat EVEBRINGER and EVEBRINGER lost 1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, SNAKE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
SLIDE TO HELL takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these 
guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SERPENTS HOLD 114, I suppose you'll be glad to know 
you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  
And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  
It was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  JOHN DERE was challenged more times this 
turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for WILLAF's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Congrats to SNAKE-in-the-grass, Khisanth's BOBbie Duelmaster.  Kudos. -- Midas

Bah, Humbugsnake!  He was just lucky. -- Goldplated

Tulane Rhoades -- I guess one could say I coined you! -- Gold Dubloon

Fratsfa Slave -- Thanks for filling in.  It was worldly of you.  Besides, I needed an
easy win. -- Golden Globe

Hori Bull -- I hope you don't have flashbacks of that fight.  They would only add to
funk.  Be well. -- Golden Flash

Slide To Hell -- Eight and oh, eh?  Well, I hope you do! -- Golden Globe

Gold.  Gold.  Gold. -- Midas

And again we find the gladiators of Willaf, AND the fans, too, apparently, deeply in
denial.  It makes you wonder.  Okay, it makes ME wonder, I don't know if YOU wonder
or not. -- Dee Nile

Heart of Gold -- Could be, my heart is in camouflage, after all. -- Black Indekker

Golden Globe -- Why am I not thrilled by that? -- Tulane Rhoades

Slide to Hell -- Ooooh, you're so dark and dominating!  I totally have chills! --
John Dere

Mora -- Ha! -- Dee Nile

Gold Dubloon -- Came for the win and the skills, I suppose. -- Tulane Rhoades

Nightstalker -- Two hunters of the night, stalking each other, eh?  Good thing we
weren't FIGHTING at night. -- Black Indekker

Golden Flash -- But it will only be a flash in the pan, I suspect.  After all, the
steward didn't think we were ill-matched, despite the experience difference. -- Hori
Bull
