                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
XOCHITHLAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch KIWI 
CONNECTION's heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  XOCHITHLAN saw the first turn for WACKY, a 5-0-1, and some teams are 
scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see BUNNY win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, BUNNY beat QUITO RIBBEL and QUITO RIBBEL lost 11 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as DEELA ELLIS takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THE MIDDLE WAY was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CHEAP SHOTS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, MORI NEB was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to IGNORE of CHEAP SHOTS 
for challenging up by 25 to MORI NEB.  IGNORE won to get 102 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in XOCHITHLAN to get a drink than The Warty 
Toad!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide
