                             Notes from the arena champ.

Have no idea if I will get this in on time.  The Conspiracy has been on the road
playing havoc with the election results across the states.  Fun and games in
Wisconsin and Washington!

Another turn on top.  Guess I must be doing things right.  Waited around for Roe v
Wade to stop prancing around and then smacked her upside the head for her murderous
behavior.  Why don't you go play with the next Chief Justice, my buddy Anthony
Scalia, for a taste of things to come!

And you really shouldn't have done that to Rupert, Michael Moore, you Big Fat Stupid
White Man!  While I can disparage the fighting skills of my warriors, I take a dim
view of propagandists like you taking things in their own hands.  I will personally
avenge the death of our hapless media magnate!  Just think, if you get lucky, you
could be Duelmaster with only three wins!  Of course, you have about the same chance
of receiving an academy award nomination....

'Til next time,

Darrell Issa

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to CONSPIRACY INC., as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE POISON CLAN stable.  For every 
winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at TREE PEOPLE 2, who 
went down to 6th from 11th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 2-0-1 outing, 
DROP THE LEASH has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  THE POISON CLAN is no joke as 
it posted a 5-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 1st place.  Call it luck at the 
right time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team KISS ME scored a 3-2-1 
record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for SHOUT IT OUT LOUD, who flew up 21 
points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BIFF STREICHER, who 
dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with CAIUS.  Well 
here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  DARRELL ISSA made 
a Bloodfeud against MICHAEL MOORE this week.  Well, everybody's pal DARRELL ISSA 
moved his record to 19-10-2 by defeating MICHAEL MOORE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 2 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that CONSPIRACY INC. was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CONSPIRACY INC.'s 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
CONSPIRACY INC. + Weapons That go Boom = THE POISON CLAN + Avoid City.  And who is 
this LUCIAS CLAY you ask, with 79 points and a 8-3-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!  Challenging down 16 points was THE SCORPION.  Pretty soon he'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  
THE SCORPION beat SNAKE CHARMER, a mismatch of 16 points.  Getting lots of flowers 
from sympathetic fans was NAME DROPPER, who was successfully challenged by THE LOTUS 
who had a mere 18 points more than NAME DROPPER.  Definition of petty:  THE LOTUS 
subdued NAME DROPPER, a mismatch of 18 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, ANTHONY SCALIA went after BLIND ILLUSION, who was higher by 21 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, ANTHONY SCALIA defeated BLIND ILLUSION.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Congrats to TAX DEDUCTION for 
revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding JOHN EDWARDS a bit 
of dirt).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, MICHAEL MOORE was mashed by 
DARRELL ISSA, who let MICHAEL MOORE know that killing members of CONSPIRACY INC. is a 
no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the SOLVEN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mr. Freeze and Master Taco -- I grow weary of how you both fly under the radar.  You
both have my attention now.  Let's see what you are made of (besides salsa and cheese
that is). -- Detective Kellumbo

The Toad -- Down south in the swamp we use toads for pincushions, you know? -- Lucias
Clay

Clint -- If that happens again, I'll believe it wasn't a fluke. -- Name Dropper

Al -- DCing again I see.   You're my kind of guy. -- DK

Darrell Issa -- Well, you were almost right.  We didn't get caught up in holiday
traffic on the way to the arena, though.  Rather, the shadowy figure provides our
funding was off in some place called "Russia," wherever that is, and we couldn't buy
new equipment.  Anyhow, I'm back and am challenging for the title.  No more fights
with Snake Charmer, I hope.  Even with the break, I'm plain worn out after 3 20
minute fights! -- Blind Illusion
P.S.  I'm not a scum tp!

Issa -- Good fight.  Maybe next time luck will be on my side. -- Roe V. Wade

Kellumbo -- Sorry about that three point downchallenge.  Sent in strats that were a
turn behind without editing them.  Ah well though, you won in the end. -- Al Gore

Conspiracy Inc. -- Good fight.  Sorry about Rupert.  If he didn't suck, he wouldn't
have died. -- Al Gore

Ohio '04 -- Nice fight for you.  Not fair you get all the skills. -- Al Gore

Ed. -- Here are some ads.  I missed a turn due to the friggin holidays.  Back to
normal operation from here on out. -- Al Gore

     Ah, yes, the holidays.  Sometimes I think they ought to be abolished.  Either
     that or separated--we could use a good holiday in August. -- Ed.

Kellumbo -- Another downchallenge, another loss.  Must be frustrating for you. --
Judge

Environmentalist -- It was just like Bush v. Kerry all over again.  And thanks to me,
Bush prevailed. -- Ohio -04

The Basilisk -- You and your fighting style disgust us. -- The Republicans

Kellumbo -- We are most avoided by you, yet we are most downchallenged by you.  Nice
style of play. -- The Republicans
