                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, G.O.L.F.'s 4th moved them 
up to 3-1-0 place.  What's with GIDJIT HAYES?  She actually beat A UNIT's A-1, and 
walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY.  GARRET 
JONES lost 7 points to GORF.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GARRET JONES will 
provide more easy wins...  KUNG-FU MASTER was reminded on the sands why PING is 
Duelmaster.  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!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

We're top team on the move?  Damn, moving is SUCH a pain in the back. -- the Middle
Way

Padre -- Maybe so, but you get hurricanes and stuff, right?  Besides, there are too
many people down there.  Unfortunately, where I live isn't a matter of choice, it's a
question of where I'm needed, and right now, that's northeast Missouri.  Otherwise,
I'd've stayed in southern New Mexico. -- Jorja
P.S.  I rather liked the area around Valentine, Texas, though....

Talk about your yo-yos!  This time, four-one!  Was it Olaf who talked about "up and
down, up and down"?  We're doing that. -- Norburn Pine, for those who walk the Middle
Way
