                                      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.  The guys at 4-LETTER 
WORDS like really pulled together to get a 2-0-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP 
award for DRONE B7?  TOLBINS HIVE B's proud of him after beating BRUISER BRODY and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  HASETH's match with HOLY GUACAMOLE 
cost him a loss of 7 points!  Was that a tear I saw in STRAWBABERRY's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't HAMMER FINGER fit to be tied!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  ANIMAL PHARM was the most avoided team.  Is a 94-68-6 
record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are GHAELIE SIDHE?  ANIMAL 
PHARM, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can ANIMAL PHARM's OXYCONTIN-TAIL be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People were asking me did INZO 
REALLY challenge TOO SUAVE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It 
wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but TOO SUAVE wants me to write about it 
since it subdued INZO.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TALCAMA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TALCAMA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
