                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is an honor to be wearing these purple robes yet again!!  If my calculations
are correct, this may be the final time I write you a DM column before I get the call
to the isle!
     With only my kin Old Yeller within striking distance to the throne, I'm unsure
who I'll be fighting next turn...  Noble Assassin gave a valiant effort, but more
often than not he doesn't live up to his billing.  Who dares to step-up into arena
across the sands from the likes of myself?
     My opponents and Fire Hydrants share the same fate!!!  Oh... and where is the
creaper hiding....  I thought I spotted his likes in the shadows, but he's rarely
found in these parts anymore.  He must be tired of getting defiled on a regular!!!
Oh my dog... let me stop now!!!  <evil grin>

Until next time....
     Same doggy time...
          Same doggy place...
               Same doggy channel...

Your Duelmaster,
Firehydrant Defiler

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KATI-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WANDERERS, since DA DOG 
POWNDAZ took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm impressed, 
a 5-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, DA DOG POWNDAZ, the Fates teach humility, and 
the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ENGLISH BULLDOG 
win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WAY OF THE WICKED beat STELLA 
MARIE and STELLA MARIE lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, KATI-TEI may be getting bland, as FIREHYDRANT DEFILER stays top 
dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From KATI-TEI's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
KATI-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  WANDERERS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE PLAGUE.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, GRIMM LURCHER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

Noble Assassin -- Valiant attempt, my swashbuckling friend. -- Firehydrant Defiler

Jorja -- You should have seen my jaw bounce off the floor when I read Devil Dog's
fight... getting killed at 7-0 in the tourney wasn't fun!  Thanks for the ondolences!
-- Marma Duke

Wrolling Thunder -- I'll be back... my kind doesn't give up! -- English Bulldog

Tore Naydo -- I'm worried to ask where that furious wind came from. -- The Hand of
Dog

Dancing Shadow -- I saw you!  It was light out!  How the heck?!! <mumble grumble> --
Dastardly Dog

Grimm Lurcher -- It feels like we fight every other turn... no? -- Old Yeller

Ubba -- And if I WERE to show up with a pile of skills for you, what would *I* get?
-- Samara
P.S.  "A loss" is not the right answer.

Old Yeller -- They say everyone has an "off" day.  I hope this was mine for the
season.  I don't need others.  That yelling!  My head aches. -- Grimm Lurcher

Dust Devil -- I have this nifty anti-static thingee, and it really seems to work.  I
got it to make my hair behave, but it clearly has many other uses! -- Samara

Whyte Squall -- I knew it!  You're in league with that stuck-up, raucous white
Persian, aren't you?  I hate that cat. -- Stray Cat, a fine orange stripe

The Fratsfa Noble tried to make out that he was "better" than me.  Ha.  I showed
*him*! -- Stella Marie

Dastardly Dog -- That was embarrassing.  But the good news is, nowhere to go but up,
right? -- Dancing Shadow
