                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TALCAMA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, CENTER FOR 
OLDS, but WIZARDGUARD was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for YO HO HO?  SEA 
DOGS' proud of him after beating SKIP and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  BOB KATZ's match with DOT DOT DOT cost him a loss of 8 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  DECK APE stopped ARETE dead in hers tracks!  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CENTER FOR OLDS was TALCAMA's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why WIZARDGUARD's been avoiding 
CENTER FOR OLDS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can CENTER FOR 
OLDS' DOT DOT DOT be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  See if I ever talk to CHOCO BOBA BABY again!  SPARE ANCHOR was so 
low when She challenged she.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in 
TALCAMA.  CHOCO BOBA BABY got 6 points after beating SPARE ANCHOR, 19 points below 
her.  People were asking me did RON ZONEY REALLY challenge BRUNO DEETH?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but BRUNO DEETH wants me to write about it since he won victory over RON ZONEY.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  It was kind of sad, seeing old AGENT 99 
stumbling around the arena, before STEVE ADORE finished her off.  Oh well!  Hey you 
guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have 
someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

     It's hard fighting in deep snow, isn't it?  But I hear that some of the Gates
     Lady Sheila wants defended are in arctic areas, so I guess there's some reason
     in it all.
