                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ALJAFIR to see 
what's new.  MVP award for CAPT KIRCHNER?  82ND ILLINOIS' proud of him after beating 
SENLUM NOSH and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SENLUM NOSH's match 
with CAPT KIRCHNER cost him a loss of 6 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think BOROMIR should let BARNUM CHELLS be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  ALL THINGS 
FLOYD was the most avoided team.  Is a 20-18-3 record really that scary?  I don't 
know what 82ND ILLINOIS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from ALL THINGS FLOYD, that's fer sher.  LT. OLSEN must not be a good enough 
fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged ARAGON.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, 
that's what they tell me.) I thought LT. OLSEN showed great skill and promise when he 
defeated ARAGON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Our congratulations to Boromir. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

We salute the tourney participants, including the surprisingly successful Gabogool.
-- Jorja and, again, the Middle Way

T.G.I. Floyd's -- Oops.  Not intentional.  Well, how could it have been, you
challenged me!  But still, decent opponents are not so thick on the ground here that
I'd want to go killing one. -- Barnum Chells

Lafayette -- Now we match, three wins each. -- Morris Ormran

Ah, the Khalhums Dwarf.  Take that, short-and-hairy! -- Senlum Nosh

Huh, looks like Senlum got him really riled up, and then he took it out on ME.  Drat.
-- Caleb Door

Lt Kafka -- Someone told me you were going to turn into a cockroach, and I was
WAITING for that. -- Fenster Golly
