                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of STORMCROWE!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, MIKES HEROES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I 
always thought MIKES HEROES was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-2-0!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  MIRACLE WORKSHOP is now ranked 6th with a 1-2-0 turn.  What's with 2 GIRLS 
1 CUP?  She actually beat STORMCROWE's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 22 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SRETSAMLEUD II while they watched DICE 
clobber WANT TO KNOW JESUS.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for DARQUE FORCES' outstanding 
member, Duelmaster YUMALESCA.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was DARQUE FORCES.  The bums at KELLUMBO'S KIDS couldn't face the 
challenges from DARQUE FORCES!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in WANT TO 
KNOW JESUS?  His 7-14-0?  MIRACLE WORKSHOP ain't talkin', but he's got 49 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

     The note below is obviously especially relevant for this arena, since ALL your
     personals have gone missing.

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
