                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  CHEAP SHOTS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Advancing in the rankings was DREW'S BOYS who went from last turn's 6-1-0, to 
this week's record of 9-1-1.  Hey everybody, watch out for MRS. POTATOE HEAD, who 
flew up 28 points in the rankings after mashing MORI NEB like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MORI NEB 
was beat by MRS. POTATOE HEAD and drops 3 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was THE MIDDLE WAY's OPARA PERSI, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by SMIRK.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that DREW'S BOYS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of DREW'S BOYS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch CHEAP SHOTS' act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from DREW'S BOYS.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
