                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for MASUMII, who flew up 16 points in the 
rankings after mashing MIYAGI'S MIATA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MIYAGI'S MIATA was bested 
by MASUMII and drops 11 points.  It's a proud day for the FLAGG'S FIVE stable, as 
their warrior, CRIX BREMOORE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they 
are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad HIGHER PURPOSE?  Big bad HIGHER PURPOSE.  Big bad HIGHER PURPOSE.  RODEKI's 
afraid of the big bad HIGHER PURPOSE.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me? 
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause CLOWNING AROUND beats feet every time HIGHER 
PURPOSE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, SUSHEE SU would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want 
to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the RODEKI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  
Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Bozo -- Confess!  It was YOU running around in a mime's whiteface, wasn't it?  It
WAS!  I knew it all along, YOU are the one who's been training the mimes to pretend
to fight better than gladiators!  That's DISGUSTING.  And dangerous, too!  What if
they got hold of weapons and stopped pretending?  So...take THAT! -- Sushee Su

Ronald McDonald -- (innocent look)  Who am I to stand in the way of your advancement,
eh?  Fly high, boy. -- The Mole, who wouldn't fly high for any inducement except
being picked up by an eagle and carried off

Fuzzy Buzzcut -- I hate losing to you.  It's like losing to a badly clipped poodle.
-- John Rose

Kangaroo Lifeboat -- Ah.  Are YOU the one that jumped away from the Titanic so
rapidly that twenty people trying to board fell into the water?  Are YOU the one who
ran down that penguin family by jumping the light at the intersection of Shipwreck
Row and Iceberg Alley?  Well, WAS it? -- Handsome Is

Red Skelton -- Damn.  I mean, darn.  I was actually afraid to hit you because of the
risk of flying bone splinters.  They can blind a person, you know, and *I* don't want
to be blinded. -- Handsome Does

Bozo -- Well, I WOULD have always been your friend, until you started messing with
the mimes. -- Sushee Su

Might as well call me Ronald McProject.  No more happy meals for me.  :(

Sushee Su -- Come on, you know I always let you win some.  Well, maybe letting you is
too strong a word.  Call us well matched.... -- Bozo

Dr. Hook/Kristine -- I guess I scared the pants off you.  Or was it that you laughed
them off when you read my comment? -- Red S.

Handsome Does? -- When they say, tall, dark and handsome, tall is not defined as NBA
freakshow height. -- Red S.

November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have,
