     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ST. GEORGE win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, EXIT beat 
HASHIN and HASHIN lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as PLASTIC MAN stays top dog in the 
city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  VEASTIAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
MELODY MAYHEM the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was DEVIL SLAYERS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
