                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MURSKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, URBAN JUNGLE, since ON 
THE ROCKS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see OLD RIP VAN WINKLE win a fight and gain 13 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OLD RIP VAN WINKLE beat MADON AP LLEW and MADON AP LLEW lost 7 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I 
telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, MURSKA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  URBAN 
JUNGLE, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ON THE ROCKS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, KAILIE RHINN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice LORD SNOW challenging down 16 points to 
fight KAILIE RHINN, URBAN JUNGLE doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult 
to honor.  Question now is, will MURSKA accept this sort of tacky behavior?  LORD 
SNOW beating KAILIE RHINN.  The insult, the....yech!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MURSKA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  GWAIR AP KAI, a glorious 5-7-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the MURSKA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
