                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
LYRATILAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to GOTTA GET A CLUE, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by 
the THE MIDDLE WAY 4 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for URBIN YATES, who flew up 
13 points in the rankings after mashing KRAKEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KRAKEN was bested 
by URBIN YATES and drops 11 points.  Isn't that life?  One minute you're on top of 
the world and then next you're laid out on a slab!  INDIGO was slain by THE LEAD 
PIPE.  Say no more.  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 FUNKY FOLK was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of FUNKY FOLK's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause SERPENTS HOLD beats feet every time FUNKY FOLK smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  THE STUDY II:  THE REMATCH. 
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LYRATILAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
