                                      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.  MVP award for AARON?  
SHEPHERDS' proud of him after beating COCKEYED UMBRELLA and getting 13 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  CHUM got smashed by LIPSTICK, and lost 7 points!  Oh, 
wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all TALCAMA.  He got the 
most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, RUTH must be pretty gutsy!  She 
challenged the Duelmaster from ARDUIN GRIMOIRE.  Does this gal have a death wish or 
what!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  KILL KITTEN stopped RUTH dead in hers 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  CENTER FOR 
OLDS was TALCAMA's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are SHEPHERDS?  CENTER FOR OLDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     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, warriors get killed by other 
warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with 
LONGSHOREMAN's 2-0-1, SEA DOGS?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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
