                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TALCAMA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  TALCAMA 
watched with glee as HIP HOP HEROES got knocked off top spot by I WAS THINKING?!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought 4-LETTER WORDS was an over-rated team and they proved it 
with a 1-1-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  
Thrust!  Block out the pain!  WASTELAND is now ranked 3rd with a 3-1-0 turn.  I WAS 
THINKING? showed TALCAMA what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to 
walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with IT'S GO TIME?  She actually beat TOLBINS HIVE B's 
DRONE N, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
TOLBINS HIVE B.  DRONE N lost 16 points to IT'S GO TIME.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe DRONE N will provide more easy wins...  DIP was reminded on the sands 
why RED ALERT is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
STREET PIZZA.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at FISHY FISHY FISH ain't 
reelin'!  STREET PIZZA's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  And this week the Duelmaster--whoops!  STREET PIZZA has one 
week left to avenge SOLSBURY STEAK's death by excessive hits on the part of SPOONIE G 
of HIP HOP HEROES.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
