                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DITA VON TEESE win a fight and gain 7 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
RAZZ beat JOSEPH GEORGE and JOSEPH GEORGE lost 2 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as STUD stays top 
dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  
You want to know what's new, don't you, RODEKI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  SUICIDE KING's 10-7-0 has earned him the Dark 
Arena.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Dealer -- Yeah, like that's going to happen!  "They" figure I'm too popular here,
doing too good a job drawing in the crowds.  They aren't going to let me go.  Stud
will probably leave before I do, if I do, and he'll deserve it, too. -- Jurgenhalen

Oh, gods, an oh-fer turn, with two losses to standbys.  The shame!  But there's a
bright side, you guys CAN'T kill us, because then we'd never live it down. --
