                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KATI-TEI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave ADVENTURE TIME 3 a 1-1-0!  I got a good laugh 
out of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  LAZY SUNDAY is now ranked 4th with a 2-2-0 turn.  What's with 
MOCCASIN?  She actually beat BB BLIND DATE's NOSE PICKER, and walked away with 17 
more points from the fight.  Major screwup at OLD SCHOOL.  RALPH? lost 10 points to 
ORDINARY OSCAR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RALPH? will provide more easy 
wins...  RUNNIK was reminded on the sands why CEYLON 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
KATI-TEI thinks TOWER OF SNAKES and their 56-90-2 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 54-89-2 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, OLD SCHOOL?  What do people see in SPASTIC FITZ?  His 9-6-0?  OLD SCHOOL 
ain't talkin', but he's got 78 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about 
the kind of fights that WARRIOR PIZZA gets in.  He fights people like N.E.P.T.R., 15 
points below.  I thought WARRIOR PIZZA showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame N.E.P.T.R..  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     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
