                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SHEPHERDS turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 
4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Now let's all watch WIZARDGUARD's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn. 
Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BRICKTOP win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
INNOCENT BYSTANDER beat OAKLAND FU and OAKLAND FU lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TALCAMA may be getting bland, as AKAI 
stays top dog in the city.  The Original Arthur's Last Stand, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TALCAMA's trash dumps? 
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BEAST MASTERS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CENTER FOR OLDS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MIDNIGHT was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have JB BLAH in a challenge, 
going down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought JB BLAH showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame HOFFA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the TALCAMA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens
