                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TALCAMA.  Like, CENTER FOR OLDS had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SEA DOGS!  Way to go SEA DOGS!  
SEA DOGS like really fought hard to move up to 1st from 4th.  Way to go!  MVP award 
for STOWAWAY?  SEA DOGS' proud of him after beating HEXALUS and getting 27 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  TRIP's match with SCAR THE BEAST cost him a loss of 20 
points!  What a putz!  BLUE MOON fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting 
and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in 
STOWAWAY's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't HEXALUS fit to be tied!  
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.  WIZARDGUARD was the most avoided team.  Is a 182-202-12 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what CENTER FOR OLDS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from WIZARDGUARD, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  DECK APE gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles 
HIGH ELF, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet SEA DOGS manager is surprised!  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
