                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LAPUR once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't 
say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well CARDOW HUNTERS moved up 0, 
to 2nd.  What's with ACCO?  He actually beat CARDOW HUNTERS' MAD DOG, and walked away 
with 12 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CARDOW HUNTERS while they 
watched STONETOOTH clobber MOLLY.  She lost 6 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  LAPUR, set your sights on DEADLY ASSASSIN.  He'll be happy 
to entertain all requests after defeating WENDY.  CHARLIE looked pretty 
Duelmasterlike as he took LAPUR's top spot with 95 points.  Now, what will WENDY do?  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, STONETOOTH!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  POSTUMUS was plum wore out after QUICK STINGER pounded 'im 
silly in a Bloodfeud.  EQUESTORS'll have to get a little better before going after 
QUICK STINGER again!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
