                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RODEKI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  COLOR ME SUAVE were a bunch 
of dogs after DELVERS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
ROCKSOCK?  It actually beat KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's QUICK DEAD HAMMER, and walked away 
with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DELVERS while they watched 
ROCKSOCK clobber QUICK DEAD HAMMER.  She lost 17 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster JOHN WAYNE HAMMER.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was DELVERS.  The bums at RESCUE RANGERS couldn't face the challenges from DELVERS!  
No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, JOHN WAYNE HAMMER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you. 
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- This place has become a cesspool of boredom.  I have returned to resurrect
it. -- The Druid

John Wayne Hammer -- Oh, it's you. -- Rocksock
P.S.  My instructions as to how to behave in your presence were very...confused.
Emotional.  I could not determine what I was supposed to do, so I didn't do it.

Delaware Run -- (panting)  I don't DO long runs, okay?  I just don't. -- Celie
Shatterstone
P.S.  My, ah, my chest jiggles when I run.

Ha!  The Ambitious Guard was a red-headed stepchild. -- Rackaboy
P.S.  I still don't know why having red hair is so bad.

Bozomobile -- Great name!  I see those around, sometimes. -- Christellina

Chip -- Aren't you...?  Oh, I see, you're a NEW chip off that block.  Okay.  Hi. --
Rita Pye
P.S.  But that's the only easy one you get!

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
