                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I had to win that one, you know.  Would Jet'e have written a column?
Probably not.  But I will, even if it's a piffling little column like this, done on a
cranky laptop on the road.
     I will salute Jet'e for the match, even if it was a down-challenge.  Sometimes
the Duel2Dude has no option but to down-challenge, after all.  At least he cared
enough to challenge.
     And I will salute Iaye for having good turnout today, even if half of them are
tourney-timing.  It's the number of warm bodies that counts, not their motives.
     And I will salute me (somebody has to do it) for winning.
     Hail, everybody!

                                    Gissanniah

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause 
for celebration, according to WRESTLMANIACS.  Say what you will about blind luck and 
dirty fighting, but RED DOG GANG will tell you 401-530-8 is nothing to laugh at...  
Practice pays for RISHTEKE, who pummelled CANDYMAN, to pocket 24 points.  THE CLEAR 
certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to MARIS and losing 9 
points in the process!  Like a flirtacious debutante, IAYE's Duelmaster GISSANNIAH 
found herself the woman of the hour, being "invited to dance" 2 times!  The arena was 
more crowded than usual this time, as SENATOR SEDALIA faced IAYE's Duelmaster.  In 
IAYE, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
SENATOR SEDALIA.  Word has it one team in IAYE is using psychics to predict wins.  
They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of RED DOG GANG, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of RED DOG GANG found their efforts at combat frustrated as LENPROS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Perhaps RED DOG GANG were the only ones left untouched by CANDYMAN demise.  
Can anyone ever take his place?  Or do I exaggerate?  CANDYMAN of THE WARLOCKS met 
the ultimate defeat at the hands of RISHTEKE of RED DOG GANG.  We wait with tainted 
breath for bloodfeud.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs 
be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Enchanted -- Me, my trusty lance and prayer.  Amen. -- Pastor Pentane

The Wind -- I'm used to your type.  I'm in politics, you know. -- Senator Sedalia

Perrojo -- I surely liked those learns. -- Paratoms

Gissanniah -- Congratulations, champ! -- Lenpro

Gissanniah -- No, just pursuing other training.  Now we're back. -- Jet'e

Bigfoots -- Close, Xir was named that way.  My name is a prophecy.  The problem is
that I don't know what it is. -- Ijaz

All -- Oh sure.  We made it so interesting in our rush to be back "in full" that I
miscalculated and sent Paratoms and Pastor Pentane to the Face as 11FE Adepts.  What
a manager!  The Pastor was able to bow out begging church duties, but Paratoms
stumbled through with the expected solid 0-3 outing. -- Lenpro

Gissanniah -- Congratulations, Champ!  We look forward to your DM column. -- Lenpro

Crazy Fingers -- You cad!  Did you have to make me the only Lenpro loser this turn?
-- Admiral Iso (now grounded at port)

Perrojo -- That had to have been the very very best I can fight.  Salute. -- Paratoms

Sierra -- I am so glad to have you around.  You are one of my favorite A-Losers.
Take two aspirin and get some sleep. -- Dr. Rosenzweig

     Now that's the best advice I've heard all day. -- Ed.

Enchanted -- That had to be something of a surprise to you.  But, holy Moses, it took
all I had!  You are formidable.  Amen. -- Pastor Pentane

The Wind -- You are definitely tough with that weapon.  I thought you had me on the
filibuster. -- Senator Sedalia

Ijaz -- I dunno about any career errors you might've made, but that challenge was an
error.  You could've died!  Don't do stuff like that, okay? -- Bigfoots, too soft-
hearted for gladiating, really

The River -- Good thing I'm a strong swimmer. -- Freeda

Vithren -- What is it with you guys to keep losing to us today?  I heard you were
better than that. -- Rishteke

Paratoms -- Is this another kind of diatoms? -- Perojo
