                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZUWAYZA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, BUBBA'S CLAM SHACK has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROBERT REICH, who flew up 27 points in the 
rankings after mashing WALTER PIDGEON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WALTER PIDGEON was beat by 
ROBERT REICH and drops 20 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and 
say 'Challenge me'!  SHARK NORMAN made a challenge against POCKET NEWS this week.  
It's a proud day for the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS stable, as their warrior, POCKET NEWS, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid LORDS INC., please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ZUWAYZA really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MAN OR 
BEAST? beats feet every time LORDS INC. smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, WALTER PIDGEON would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, CLEVELAND STEAMERS went after ROCKY J SQUIRREL, who was higher by 23 points. 
Well, when the dust settled, CLEVELAND STEAMERS lost to ROCKY J SQUIRREL.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ZUWAYZA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
