                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SOLVEN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for YUR 
AIN EEUM, who pummelled TRUMP, to pocket 33 points.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 6 points to DONNETTA.  (Discrete 
enough, OH WELL?) UP successfully staved off a grab for the roses by TAMMY of 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Does SOLVEN have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who's 
the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a 
PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of THE REPUBLICANS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, JUST CHILLIN scurried away from THE REPUBLICANS.  Oh, the shame!  
If challenges were horses, FROZEN FANNY could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SOLVEN is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid SOLVEN 
farewell-- Novgorodny Vir
