                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TALCAMA.  CENTER FOR OLDS like really 
fought hard to move up to 10th from 13th.  Way to go!  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 4-1-1.  Keep it up, I WAS THINKING?!  MVP 
award for SUSHI HANGOVER?  FISHY FISHY FISH's proud of him after beating EDDY and 
getting 27 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SPOONIE G got smashed by 
LIPSTICK, and lost 19 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think RED ALERT should let DIP be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of STREET PIZZA must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why FISHY FISHY FISH's been avoiding STREET PIZZA so much?  Or 
is it just that they're too scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I was SO depressed when I heard HAMMER TOE got killed.  He was just a 
kid, and didn't get a fair chance in TALCAMA, or anything!  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.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
