                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Those betting on THE SAVAGE KINKS lost their shirt, as THE SAVAGE KINKS 
lost their fighting abilities:  0-0-0.  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's 
that for a perceptive observation?) as CONSPIRACY INC. can attest...  JUST CHILLIN 
had cause to celebrate, after SNOWBALL got 23 points by beating ARISHTARTE.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ZEBROE was winsome, after beating ELEANORTH and 
seeing her lose 13 points.  EASY BREEZE successfully staved off a grab for the roses 
by SCHWARZENEGGER of KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Does SOLVEN have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of KELLUMBO'S KIDS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE REPUBLICANS, so did that sorry team shy from 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS If challenges were horses, ZOOIE could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Citizens of 
SOLVEN, be sure to settle your debts with NAME DROPPER of KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  He's 
relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
