                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of VEASTIAN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  VEASTIAN watched with 
glee as UNC COLLEGE RADIO got knocked off top spot by TOLBIN'S X-MEN!  It seems so 
recently people were saying THE FAMILY was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them 
up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with XERXES?  He actually beat 
VEASTIAN's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Try as he might, MARCO THE KNIFE wasn't good enough at persuading ARCHERS OF LOAF to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Anybody who didn't fight us, fought a standby, and WE even fought two standbys.
That's dispiriting.  We feel dispirited.  We would wail and gnash our teeth, but
that's undignified, and dignity is all we've got left. -- the Family
