                                       TURN 9

Turn 9 was all about shifting momentum!  We have a new leader!  The slow and steady
pace of Jekyll has paid off and he takes the lead with a +8 total score.  Manager and
Superior Forces also gain a big +2 turn for a total of +7 tying him with past leader
Bladerunner in the second spot even though he can't seem to get a TV challenge out of
his warrior!  Tripwire has a big 5-0 turn and got +3 points out of it shooting him
into sole possetion of 4th place and +6 points.  The Greek Guy had a solid +2, giving
him the next spot at +5 overall. Heathen took a brutal hit with a -3 pushing him out
of second all the way to 6th!  The rest of the pack went from +1 to -2 shifting
around a bit on the middle and bottom of the pile, but the bottom 2 active teams
Guardian and Street Legal both had positive turns to start the trek upward.  I didn't
expect many PAs in this contest but sheesh!  Everyone is dead silent.  Only 13 points
seperate the lowest active contestant from 1st place.  The top 7 are within 4 points
of each other.  It is still anyone's ballgame.

                                      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.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but SKI-BUM 18 really goofed with their 1-4-0.  
CENTER FOR OLDS like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 8th.  Way to go!  What 
was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 180-166-11 you ask?  
(Sure)  SUPERIOR FORCES 6N's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for 
WILD WANDA?  SKI-BUM 18's proud of her after beating BRUNO DEETH and getting 27 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SWAIN PEAK's match with HOLLY cost him a loss 
of 17 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause it's Number One!  ZELANA 
knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  TAREK stopped ZELANA dead in hers tracks!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  CENTER FOR OLDS was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 1159-1138-70 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are SKI-BUM 18?  CENTER FOR OLDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can ODIN'S CHOSEN's HROKK be more popular 
than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are 
really unfair.  How do you think MERVYN feels about being challenged by GRUMPY GHOUL, 
17 points above him?  Is this how THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD advances, by having their 
members (GRUMPY GHOUL) fight people that are really below them (MERVYN)?  SHADERUNNER 
is being unfair.  She's challenged down 20 against DRIFTWOOD.  I don't know why they 
let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) SHADERUNNER beat DRIFTWOOD.  No surprise 
about that.  Really I'm not surprised SHADERUNNER would do such a scummy thing, 
either.  See if I ever talk to NIKKI again!  DEAD BOB was so low when She challenged 
she.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in TALCAMA.  NIKKI got 6 
points after beating DEAD BOB, 22 points below her.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Everyone has problems, but why did SUPERIOR FORCES 6N send NEWBIE to the 
Dark Arena?  It had a 4-1-1, and I thought it looked neat on the sands...  Like was 
that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (ISA vs. EXTRADONAIRE, that is.) What if they had a 
fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
