                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
XOCHITHLAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Say good-bye to THE MIDDLE WAY, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by 
the CHEAP SHOTS stable.  KIWI CONNECTION seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, 
and if they continue having 3-0-1 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out 
for WHAKAPAPA, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing RIRORNI WOMAN like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
XYOKOR YAHL, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
PONY.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the 
most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Our battling duelmaster SMIRK has 
managed to hold the title, fending off DEELA ELLIS' none too subtle advances.  Better 
luck next time, THE MIDDLE WAY.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that THE MIDDLE WAY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of THE MIDDLE WAY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  THE MIDDLE WAY + Weapons That go Boom = CHEAP SHOTS + 
Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the XOCHITHLAN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

-- Sneak

Mori Neb -- Ignorance is bliss! -- Ignore

Opara -- Meteoric strike?  You don't even know what a meteor is, and toy certainly
can't strike.  And cock of the snook?  Where do you get this silly gibberish?  You
probably mean sock of the cook. -- Smirk

Opara -- One look at you leaves one quite pleased to be a neutered orc. -- Ignore
