                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  STORMCROWE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, ASAIRE, 
but STREET WALKERS was just too good to be stopped.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, NORTHERN LIGHTS!  MVP 
award for SLAMBO?  STREET WALKERS' proud of her after beating LEWD and getting 14 
points.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  DAN MACK GRU stopped CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said STORMCROWE's Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Shadow's Fountain?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  2L82HIT must not be a good enough fighter to get in 
fair fights.  He challenged MR BEEFY.  13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what 
they tell me.) I thought 2L82HIT showed great skill and promise when he was bested by 
MR BEEFY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I was SO depressed when I heard LEWD got killed.  He was just a kid, and 
didn't get a fair chance in STORMCROWE, or anything!  Hey you guys, don't you think 
your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  STORMCROWE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
