                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for THE 6TH ELEMENT, 
who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing LORIS DEANE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was LORIS DEANE, who 
dropped 19 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with THE 6TH ELEMENT. 
Try as hard as the SERPENTS HOLD stable might, they were unable to find their warrior 
(and ex-Duelmaster) RHOMBA before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
HEARING AID took the Duelmaster's crown for its own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ZENSU arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid CAPTAIN PLANET, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ZENSU really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  CAPTAIN PLANET + Weapons That go Boom = OLDER BY FAR + Avoid City.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, EARTH would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, GOT 
THE RUNS went after EARTH, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
GOT THE RUNS bested EARTH.   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZENSU have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Rhomba -- Did you have to kill Wheel Chair?  We Older By Fars are all going to die
some day, so why rush it?  He was an interesting chair at 17-7-9-17-9-14-11 mode ST,
and he learned so well at a 2.92 skill rate.  Pshaw!  May he fight well in That Great
Arena In The Sky.  And may you, Rhomba, join that Great arena shortly. -- Methuselah

Cormek Deane -- Sorry about that.  I am glad I heard you yell "stop." -- Hearing Aid

Rhomba -- I guess I have to blood feud you, even though I lost in our fight before.
For some reason I sense you may not fight next turn in order to hold out and fight
immortal in Milwaukee.  We shall see.... -- Hearing Aid (Who will see, but maybe not
hear.)

Jorja -- Hope that nasty sickness is gone.  Get well soon.  (Or already.) --
Methuselah

I Say No -- But what if I wanted you to say YES? -- Linaea Deane

Hearing Aid -- Damn, you didn't hear me say, "I surrender!" -- Cormek Deane

That One Monkey -- You're enough to make me contemplate monkicide. -- Linaea Deane

And three-oh against standbys. -- Marlin Kole, Loris Deane, and Coolin Dunn
