                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  ALJAFIR watched with 
glee as IN MIDDLE EARTH got knocked off top spot by MIDDLE WAY!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, MIDDLE 
WAY's 1st moved them up to 3-2-0 place.  What's with GANDALF?  He actually beat 
ALMOST THANKSGIVING's GREEN BEANS, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at IN MIDDLE EARTH while they watched GANDALF clobber GREEN 
BEANS.  She lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for MIDDLE WAY's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
KAIREEN LAMAR.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, KAOS FROGS!  In my day, no team with a 5-12-0 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, ZOMBIE SQUAD 2?  What do people see in ARAGON?  His 8-9-0?  IN MIDDLE 
EARTH ain't talkin', but he's got 33 points.   
     Warriors of ALJAFIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
