                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm the first Jack to reach the throne here in sunset and I have to say it feels
good to be on top!  Although I feel that I didn't quite earn it as I fought an arena
guy to get here, none the less, I will defend it!  Well, it's time to go eat my
Christmas pie....
     What a bad boy am I!

--Lil' Jack Horner--

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SUNSET brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, ALL JACKED UP II, since 
BEN'S BAZAAR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for ALL JACKED UP II, whose 
1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 7th.  Ha!  THE BLUES turned their 3-2-0 turn 
into a 10th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch THE UNHOLY ONES' heads swell from their 5-0-0 
this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see SUZY Q win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KILMOAR beat SEVN HELLS and SEVN HELLS lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
BRANDON challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  The Duelmaster's 
Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha!  BRANDON has killed LIL' JACK HORNER in the 
Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  THE 
UNHOLY ONES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was GRIM FANDANGO.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, TEXAS FLOOD was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice CHOK OWTLYN challenging down 20 points 
to fight MINAMI TORI, GRIM FANDANGO doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an 
insult to honor.  CHOK OWTLYN was overcame by MINAMI TORI!  Ok, CHOK OWTLYN want to 
fight my grandmother next turn?  Huh?  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into 
one, ABSENTE challenged up 28 to take on JACK AND COKE of ALL JACKED UP II.  My sides 
still hurt from laughing about JACK AND COKE losing and giving ABSENTE 18 points of 
recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!  I guess I can give a little credit to BISHOP of BEN'S 
BAZAAR for challenging up by 21 to THE THRILL.  BISHOP lost to get 58 points of 
recognition.  And we have FLAP JACK in a challenge, going down 11 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought FLAP JACK showed great skill and promise when it 
defeated DONEGAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  DOK SIK KILLAS has cause to pause today, as CARDINALE 
was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll 
wager.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  SAMUEL, a glorious 7-5-0 fighter, has passed 
away.  Gee, too bad RANDOM CHAOS.  So, CELESTIAL WRATH, just going to let TOLLIVER 
rot in peace are we?  Bye bye Bloodfeud, hello gloating arrogant BRANDON.  A big 
yahoo goes out to LUCIANA this turn, for revenging THE UNHOLY ONES' bloodfeud against 
KANO CLAN's warrior MAME HOSHIRO.  Heh, heh, heh.  Consider BOBBY ORR gone, and CAJUN 
APOCALYPSE unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for his death go unrevenged.  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 SUNSET to get a drink than Baba Yaga's Bar 
and Grill!  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

All -- It's amazing what gladiators will do when motivated by the prospect of the
Dark Arena.  5-0 turn. -- The Cajun

I would like to know the managers that have been abusing my team (that means everyone
in Sunset.)  Please respond in kind.

     Manager of Doc LeGrand's Lab -- I will enter your name in the lists however you
     want it.  Are you saying here that you want your real name used in that context?
     Your note wasn't clear. -- the Editor
     P.S.  And if you're asking for a manager list, I will provide one, but not today
     while coping with the tourney spy report.  Will next turn do for that?

Bishop -- Reach for tha starz baby!!! -- Jack Reacher

All -- I find myself to be extremely fortunate to hold the top team here among such
skilled opponents.  Congrats to you all and may you keep my blades red! -- Pat Sajak

Minami Tori -- Didn't believe the results when I did it to you on my challenge?
Well, believe it!  Even with your choice of armor and strategy, the result was the
same.  I can't beat everyone, but that does appear to be a matchup I like.  Feel free
to try again. -- Ozadanwin

Beastly -- One must take the right matchups where one can.  I appreciate the win and
the learns. -- Donegal

Thak -- That fight should have been mine.  Next time it will be.  I'm sure of it.  I
think.  Probably.  It should be.  Maybe.  Well, perhaps.  I might win it.  Dang! --
Ironwood

Bonham -- Dude!  I hope you have some hidden tourney FE as I suspect, or that was a
horribly unfair fight for you.  But since you did manage to teach me something, I
have to assume that there is more to you than meets the eye.  I shall take it. --
Wambasu

Bard Builder -- Perhaps you should stick to singers?  I actually looked fairly decent
in that one.  And I needed it, I don't think the boss would have been happy with 0-3.
-- Torino

Luciana -- A bold challenge and a respectable attempt!  It seemed to go badly for
your stable against mine last cycle, for whatever reason.  Good luck getting
graduated! -- LP Evnmor Blak

Chuck -- Sorry to see you going inactive so soon, but it doesn't surprise me all that
much, since every tourney team inevitably does.  See you next year! -- Stik

Xian Lin -- I honestly don't know what surprised me more about that fight.  Your
suckitude or my awesomeness!  Or the fact you only taught me two skills, come ON!! --
Chok Owtlyn

Absente -- I was disappointed with your teaching, too, mister.  How am I supposed to
tourney prep with a measly three skills and one rating?!?? -- Soulstice, hoping to
still be here alive this turn and with a TV trophy to boot.  Hey, I can dream can't
I??

     Do you have a license to dream?

Centaurian -- I got nothin' but love forya, baby! -- Soulstice

And off to the Dark Arena go Wonswing (a 21-7-20-17-9-3-7 BA experiment) and the new
recruit...come on, rollup gods, Stik needs somethin' he can work with!!
