                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LAPUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE TAKEN, but 
SHADOWMIST was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for SUMIRE?  BLACK SAMURAI's 
proud of him after beating ENIGMA and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  ENIGMA's match with SUMIRE cost him a loss of 10 points!  What a putz!  
CALYPSO fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No 
one said she was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in CAIRRAIG AMADAN's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't RAVAGE fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of THE TAKEN must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why BLACK SAMURAI's been avoiding THE TAKEN so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LAPUR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
