                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Welcome to ALJAFIR, YORK'S ARCADE!  
We need more teams who can get a 4-1-0 their first time out!  What's with ZAXXON?  He 
actually beat ALJAFIR's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY.  TOBIT OPPAT lost 9 points to JIMI APPENDIX. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TOBIT OPPAT will provide more easy wins...  I'm 
sure ALJAFIR is excited about LT MUELLER, the new Duelmaster from 82ND ILLINOIS.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ALJAFIR 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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ALJAFIR is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

standbys, but still....  Oh, well.  For the Middle Way, I say:

To those we fought -- Good fight. -- We who fought you
