     Ah!  A fourth title.  Not too bad.  Now it all depends on when the Commission
wants to call me up or that sad thing called death.  Goooooo, Commission!
     Just for the fun of it, I thought you all might like to see Methuselah's Older
By Far team in their birthday suits. (snicker)

A pretty mediocre sight, eh?  Averages out to a 15-9-9-13-13-12-13 something or
other.
     Anyway, we Olders are almost always for the "little guy", and even though we
have ties to Kentucky, we say-- Gooooo, VCU!  Gooooo, Butler!  March Madness is such
a hoot!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZENSU.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ROCKING CHAIR?  
He actually beat CAPTAIN PLANET's EARTH, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ZENSU while they watched KHALHUMS DWARF clobber WHEEL 
CHAIR.  It lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
CORMEK DEANE was reminded on the sands why HEARING AID is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ZENSU thinks CAPTAIN 
PLANET and their 77-60-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at OLDER BY FAR ain't reelin'!  CAPTAIN 
PLANET's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  And this week the Duelmaster--whoops!  CAPTAIN PLANET has one 
week left to avenge DIRTY COAL's death by excessive hits on the part of HEARING AID 
of OLDER BY FAR.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  
To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
