                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, Seems Anchorman decided to give it a pass this turn.  Sandbagging for the
winter FtF?  Or just lazy?  I guess we'll find out soon enough.
     Another yo yo fight with the Earl of Brick, my turn this time old chap!  May be
here next time, may not.

Until then, Oliver.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARDIVENT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FANDILS, since DEATHTONGUE 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all watch 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big 
shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MOLLIE 
SCOT win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, YVONNE beat LILA DEANE and 
LILA DEANE lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, ARDIVENT may be getting bland, as OLIVER stays top dog in the city.  The 
Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From ARDIVENT's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ARDIVENT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
DEATHTONGUE 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 
FANDILS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARDIVENT to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
