     Well, what are you looking at, ZENSU?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, OLDER BY FAR, since BEYOND 
THE PALE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see HOLDING UP THE LINE win a fight and gain 13 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat HEARING AID and HEARING AID lost 15 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZENSU may be getting 
bland, as RHOMBA stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  CAPTAIN PLANET was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like 
OLDER BY FAR avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you 
ask me.  Hmph.   
     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 ZENSU to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

And the old just keep on getting older.  (Thankfully) -- the Older By Far gang

Well, I can certainly see why my Got The Runs was the most unpopular warrior last
round.  Yuck!  Earth, was that an enduring event or a boring-athon? -- Methuselah

My turn, Marlin.  My turn.  Finally! -- I Say No

     No!

Rhomba -- I think you are nothing but a snake in the grass!  I didn't hear you
coming. -- Hearing Aid

Congratulations to a well-deserving Duelmaster, Rhomba, a Khisanth of a serpent. --
Methuselah

Happy Memorial Day!  A great one for us with Ding Dong The Wicked Witch Of The
Mideast Is Dead! -- Methuselah and The Older By Far

A -38 (minus thirty-eight) score with a 3-1-0 record is hard to come by, but we Older
By Far gang did it.  How interesting!  It is all your fault, Khisanth.  You
discriminate against old people.  You do. -- Methuselah

Wheel Chair -- Hit and run!  Ouch!  Where's the Constable? -- Cormek Deane

That One Monkey -- At least you're a neuter golem and can't breed more like you. --
Linaea Deane

I Say No -- But *I* said yes, so where are my skills? -- Marlin Kole
P.S.  I really need them.

Holding Up the Line -- Not MY line, you aren't! -- Loris Deane

The 6th Element -- Really?  If I'd realized what you were at the beginning, I
might've been intimidated, but I thought the arenamaster said "elephant," and I can
deal with elephants. -- Coolin Dunn
