                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TALCAMA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at I WAS 
THINKING? left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by HIP HOP 
HEROES.  Good show!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at 
jokes, observe I WAS THINKING?.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 5!  Nothing 
works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as 4-LETTER 
WORDS can attest...  Practice pays for EDDY, who pummelled CRUSH THE DOCTOR, to 
pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 16 points to EDDY.  (Discrete enough, CRUSH THE DOCTOR?) What can 
be a greater victory?  R-1 has taken his place as the top, as TALCAMA's new 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TALCAMA is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are TALCAMA's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an 
overtaxed simile, I now bid TALCAMA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
