     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  JESSIE'S SPUDS turned their 1-1-0 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see POCKET NEWS win a 
fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, POCKET NEWS beat ROBERT REICH and 
ROBERT REICH lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as BULL HALSEY stays top dog in the city.  The 
Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MAN OR BEAST?.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, MISSOURI WILDLIFE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUWAYZA to get a drink than The Drunken Ox!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Cosmo -- A very enjoyable rematch.  I also like my chances for the rubber. -- Dont

Dont Pay Rent -- You'd better believe it!  If necessary, we'll send a kamikaze wild
turkey (they're smarter than domestic turkeys, but that isn't saying much) to kill
your carriage. -- Missouri Wildlife

Goose Gossage -- You youngsters are so reckless.  Wait till you've got a couple score
more years on you and see if you'd make such a challenge then, eh? -- AARP!

naturally superior species, and greatly skilled.  Well, greatly experienced, anyway.
Of course I "bested" you.  I'm the best. -- Dragon

Crimson Bunny -- You're unnatural.  Probably the work of some renegade

WEIRD stuff. -- Alchemist's Monthly
