                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but IDES OF MARCH will tell you 64-58-4 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice 
pays for TIBERIUS, who pummelled HOT ROD II, to pocket 23 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 13 points to NIFTY 
NICKEL.  (Discrete enough, JACK HAMMA?) DAN STEPPE successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by TIMES of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  Does ZUWAYZA have no one talented enough 
to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ZUWAYZA is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZUWAYZA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble 
eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE MAGNIFICENT 
MAGS, alone and unchallenged.  The warriors of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS found their 
efforts at combat frustrated as IDES OF MARCH apparently had more important things to 
do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, ANICETUS ENNIUS is the most challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZUWAYZA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Maximus -- For gods' sake man, you forgot your weapon.  Or is your manager too cheap
to buy you one?  Try fighting the way you did against Wee Man, you kicked his little
butt. -- Deep Thought, mgr. Cunning Runts

Maximus -- You will respect my authority! -- Eric Cartman
P.S.  I'm not fat, my mom says I'm big boned.

Robin Storrs -- You got blood on my "Cowabunga" t-shirt man. -- Bart Simpson

Ornament -- I've got a tiara stuck on the hilt of my sword.  Please let me know if
you want it back. -- Stewie Griffin

Al Zeimer -- You forgot to finish me off when you had the chance.  I said, YOU FORGOT
TO...never mind. -- Barney Rubble *hee hee hee hee*

Antonius -- Down challenge 18 pts huh.  Now you will respect my authoratay, you
stinky Greek. -- Eric Cartman

Dan Steppe -- If you weren't so excessively tall and made out of wrought iron (damned
golems!), and you weren't so CLUMSY, I *might* have a toe or two left at the end of
the fight.  As it is, they're flat as paper and red all over. -- Hot Rod the Annoyed

Pete Moss -- Ugh, you'll never make even the lowest grade of paper.  Too fibrous and
spongy. -- Nifty Nickel, looking elsewhere for an inexpensive paper source

Publius -- Sorry, but we don't take letters-to-the-editor at our office.  Try one of
my teammates. -- Black Belt

White Chocolate -- Ah!  You have returned.  Despite my unwelcome loss, and the
inherent superiority of dark chocolate, I am glad to see you here once again. --
Times

Stewie Griffin -- Your nature does not recommend you, but perhaps with some
decoration you could be made presentable? -- Ornament

Rondol of Osksi -- Of course I menace pedestrians!  They're lower forms of life and
need to be kept in their places. -- Hot Rod

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
