                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Manute Bol.  I knew a Cotton Bol once.  He couldn't fight, either.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
NIATOLI ISLAND.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid! 
We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  RAVAGING LORDS now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
HEADLESS NORSEMAN, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing PHOENIX like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
OMAHA, who dropped 7 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with JERK 
O'LANTERN.  In front of all the crowds, MOTHER TERESA took the Duelmaster's crown for 
hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the 
body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that HEROES was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of HEROES' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  HEROES + Weapons That go Boom = HALLOWIENERS + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

could go to 8-3 in eligibles or 11-3 Freshmen, or even 10-3 in Apprentices, but there
they are.  We salute them, and the rest of the participants as well. -- the Sewing
