                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to MIDDLE WAY 17, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the REIGN 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for ALLIS, who flew up 28 points in the rankings 
after mashing IRINA JINZ like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was IRINA JINZ, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with ALLIS.  Our battling duelmaster COME ON has managed to 
hold the title, fending off M. CHARDINEE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck 
next time, JHANS.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad MIDDLE WAY 17?  Big bad MIDDLE WAY 17.  Big bad MIDDLE WAY 17.  JHANS' 
afraid of the big bad MIDDLE WAY 17.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch ERRATA's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from MIDDLE WAY 17.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
