                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ALJAFIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, MIDDLE WAY, 
but YORK'S ARCADE was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for ZAXXON?  YORK'S 
ARCADE's proud of him after beating HEAD NUGENT and getting 15 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  HEAD NUGENT got smashed by ZAXXON, and lost 10 points!  Was 
that a tear I saw in GABOGOOL's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't 
FENSTER GOLLY fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     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 you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ALJAFIR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

No!  This is too much!  Or not enough.  We fought four standbys this time (going 3-1,
nothing is ever perfect) and one presumably managed gladiator.  And I have, by
default, the duelmasterhsip, the chartered recognition leader, popularity leader, and
favorite spot!  Really, this is just WRONG.  I'm not a bad gladiator, I suppose, but
I'm not great.  I can't handle this. -- Fenster Golly
