                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm on vacation until after the mail-in.  The throne is up for grabs, by
whomever is brave enough to take it.

Baby On Board

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TALCAMA to see 
what's new.  NEXT GENERATION like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 6th.  Way 
to go!  MVP award for JERZ D'UNSAVORY?  THE BIKE SHOP's proud of it after beating THE 
COLOR OF DUMB and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  THE COLOR OF 
DUMB's match with JERZ D'UNSAVORY cost him a loss of 8 points!  What a putz!  BABY ON 
BOARD fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No 
one said she was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's 
habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome PETE.  Aren't SHEPHERDS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was 
the wiseguy that said TALCAMA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Original 
Arthur's Last Stand?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  RYAN'S HENCHMEN was the most avoided team.  Is a 
161-191-14 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are SHEPHERDS?  
RYAN'S HENCHMEN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can SHEPHERDS' A'S SPECIAL BLEND be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
