                             Notes from the arena champ.

Admiral on deck!

At ease, Zuwayza.  I'm Halsey, Bull Halsey and I remain your Admiral this turn.

Apparently France has declared war on the US of A.  Yesterday I detected a Frenchman,
one M. Chardinee, lurking around the officer's mess.  After a quick fight, I took him
prisoner.  He kept shouting that the government told him to attack me.  His name
sounds French, his government sent him to attack a US Naval officer.  Hence the
French have declared war.

We will be prepared!

That is all.

Crew dismissed.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUWAYZA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  ZUWAYZA 
watched with glee as THE MOTHERSHIP CC got knocked off top spot by THE MAGNIFICENT 
MAGS!  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS showed ZUWAYZA what they were made of as they fought with 
a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with GRAVITRON?  He actually beat 
JESSIE'S SPUDS' TAMBONE, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at THE MOTHERSHIP CC while they watched GRAVITRON clobber TAMBONE.  She lost 
10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  UNCLE LEO was 
reminded on the sands why BULL HALSEY is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
ZUWAYZA thinks JESSIE'S SPUDS and their 12-13-1 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BASH BRO HOUSEMATE 
ain't reelin'!  JESSIE'S SPUDS' mad!  What do people see in MISSOURI WILDLIFE?  His 
19-17-0?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS ain't talkin', but he's got 92 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
