     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  BEEFCAKES turned their 2-3-0 turn into a 
7th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Now let's all watch CONSORTIUM CREW's heads swell from their 3-0-0 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HAMMER TOE win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
HAMMER TOE beat SPOONIE G and SPOONIE G lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ACE takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  HIP HOP HEROES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CONSORTIUM CREW 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of TALCAMA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Fifteen to the Dark Arena this time!  Talk about overworked!  But they have good
benefits:  Health care, job security, and all the happy frogs they can eat.

Ah!  And our four-one last turn WAS a fluke!  This time, one-four.  And two of the
losses were to standbys, one of them even the Cult Member.  Embarrassing. --
Albuquerque Boone for those out on the High Way
