                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
SOLVEN may be getting bland, as TASHELL stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and 
bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SOLVEN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
4-LETTER CURSE WORDS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  
And it looks like CRY HAVOC avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, DOLBY JOSSEL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at 
this.  HOT TUB JOHNNY challenged down 23 against THE REPUBLICANS' TRUMP.  What a 
weasel!  And sorry to say, HOT TUB JOHNNY subdued TRUMP, leaving a bad feeling with 
the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  Now here's guts and 
stupidity all rolled into one, JACKSON challenged up 32 to take on CHUCKER ISTTA of 
MIDDLE WAY 15.  Not that I'm surprised or anything, but JACKSON was subdued by 
CHUCKER ISTTA, leaving the latter lower for recognition points.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to CRACKHEAD of CRY HAVOC for challenging up by 20 to BELISSA HOUGH.  
CRACKHEAD won to get 86 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Gee, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, ain't it past due 
for sending KIDNERGUARDIAN Dark Arena?  What took ol' '13-10-2' so long?  Hope?  Ha 
ha aha ha!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     What does the SOLVEN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Judge -- Thank you.  It's good to be "home." -- Cadmus

Mgr. 4-Letter Curse Words -- While I have long admired your work, I don't think I've
ever known your name.  Care to introduce yourself? -- Cadmus, mgr. Wild Oats, 82's
Locals, etc.

Duncan Hunter -- Dumb challenge, huh? -- Birdbrain

Dolby Jossel -- No need for a rubber match.  Even if it lit, it would stink. --
Simpleton
P.S.  Jumpin' gigolo!

Edgiles Kapp -- Beaten senseless and sent to the infirmary; my kind of day. --
Masochist
P.S.  Peanut vendors?  The wave?  Dancing Homer?

Hot Tub Johnny -- If a downchallenge victory is what it takes to get you out of here,
I'm all for it. -- Belissa Hough

Shoot -- I was just saying your name, not giving you an order!  Gods, that was
horrid!  I hope I never have to experience the like again. -- Ghost of Gallantins
Morik

Shux -- Ma'am, your name says it all.  But now that we've put that unpleasant
interlude behind us, how about dinner?  I know a quiet restaurant, low lights, a
little music, really fine food....  You on? -- Edgiles Kapp

Duncan Hunter --Well, FINE.  Go hunt something!  Or dunk it, I don't care.  Donuts?
Hmm, now that isn't a bad idea at all.  I wonder what's in the cupboard? -- Dolby
Jossel, having hungry thoughts

These Happy Peasants in the arena really freak me out.  What are they DOING there?
Why are they happy about it?  Is this the mask for some cult? -- Chucker Istta
P.S.  The way he kept grinning just gave me the willies.

Our congratulations to Tashell and Hot Tub Johnny. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
