                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  RODEKI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  DELVERS like really 
fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for C-PAPPY?  COLOR ME 
SUAVE's proud of him after beating ELIFAS KENT and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  ELIFAS KENT's match with C-PAPPY cost him a loss of 11 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  SEAFOOD RISOTTO knows 
this.  He was Bloodfeuded by the Duelmaster.  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SEAFOOD RISOTTO.  Aren't VENETIAN 
CINQUE proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates? 
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  SHREDDERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 86-61-5 record really 
that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are COLOR ME SUAVE?  SHREDDERS, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can 
INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP's TALIB KWELI be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?  Ooh!  Did GAVEN ADLER really know what he was 
doing when he challenged TALIB KWELI?  A 10-6-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  
I don't know what it means.) Like, was that some fighting on GAVEN ADLER's part, or 
what?  And he got 20 points out of it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor TALIB 
KWELI.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because UNCLE TED had 19-8-0 was no reason 
for SHREDDERS to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  Everyone has problems, but 
why did SHREDDERS send UNCLE TED to the Dark Arena?  He had a 19-8-0, and I thought 
he looked neat on the sands...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would 
like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  RODEKI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Swirling Mass -- I'm not sure that qualified as more exciting per say, but I still
enjoyed the result.  Excitement is overrated, anyway.  Just ask the replacement refs.
-- Monday Night Football

Isengalen -- Nothing shows class like picking on an old man with a sleep disorder. --
C-Pappy

Seafood -- Unlike birds and bushes, a scimitar in the belt doesn't beat two large
shields in my hands. -- Armored Echo

Our congratulations to Uncle Ted. -- Harby and the Delvers

Hippo Huntress -- Seems to me I've heard of a hippo somewhere lately....  Osksi!
There's a hippo as duelmaster in Osksi!  Maybe we should check into that. --
Jurgenhalen

Rima Adler -- You're jealous, aren't you?  Wishing you were slim and graceful like
me.  Well, even defeating me won't help you there. -- Karligrena
P.S.  Nothing will help with that, I don't think it's physically possible for orcs to
be slim and graceful.  Settle for voluptuous.

Hippo Huntress -- Going by your form here displayed, we could give that hippo in
Osksi a real fight. -- Jurgenhalen

Trugoy the Dove -- We see a lot of you, don't we?  Oh, well.  Small Arenas R Us. --
Elifas Kent

Slash -- You won't shred me that easily!  And, ha! now that I've got fourteen wins, I
can graduate any time!  I'm ready, take me now, Shiela! -- Isengalen

Pasdanous -- This is a case of "put a sock in it!"  But are you sure you're correctly
armed?  That looks like an input error to me. -- Igrina Sockinette
