                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for WILLAF.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS like really 
fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for HORI BULL?  PUNNY 
AMINALS' proud of him after beating GOLDEN FLASH and getting 17 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  GOLDEN FLASH's match with HORI BULL cost him a loss of 7 points!  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
TEETER-SLAUGHTER.  Aren't DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS was WILLAF's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been avoiding 
BLOOD ON THE TRACKS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey, warriors get killed by other 
warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with 
ARRGH's 3-1-0, AIMER'S INC?  It was kind of sad, seeing old LITTLE RED BIKE stumbling 
around the arena, before HALIFAX finished him off.  Oh well!  What if they had a 
fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Black Indekker -- Turnabout is fair play, I guess, but I didn't like it.  It was
silly of me to think I could play with the experienced big boys, anyhow.  After all,
I am just a flit. -- Goldfinch

Hori Bull -- What I did to you was horrible, I know; but I really don't mind. (wink)
-- Golden Flash

Little Red Bike -- Arrrrggghhhhh!  You again?!  I lost again!? -- Golden Gloves

Congratulations to Everbringer, Duelmaster AND Lord Protector.  Kudos! -- Midas and
The Golden Gladiators

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold.  And Happy New Year. -- Midas

Congratulations to Everbringer.  You kept bringing it, and you got it there. -- Jorja
and the Punny Aminals

Golden Flash -- You most-challenged me?  WHY?  Ah... maybe you wanted me to beat some
of the dents out of your armor?  I expect to be PAID for that, you know. -- Hori Bull

Goldfinch -- Once, sure, twice, not if I can help it. -- Black Indekker
P.S.  Besides, you needed a loss.  It makes you more balanced.

Abel -- Seems like you were.  Ouch. -- Hazel Nutte, now cracked

Arrgh -- Hey, it's MY sofa, I know where the lumps are and how to avoid them. --
Sofa'yam

Delacroix -- Are you sure?  I thought you were a painter. -- Whip Sawyer, with a
fence in mind
