                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yep, here I am again for number five. I really would rather graduate. Every day 
this gets riskier and riskier. I have nieces and nephews to take care of, after all. 
You see?
     I would really like to retire and play golf. Is that too much to ask? So take it 
easy on me through two more fights. That is all it takes: avoiding falling deeply into 
the red sands for two more fights. Be kind!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Up 'n down.  Up 'n 
down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, WE GOT 
GAME's 2nd moved them up to 2-3-0 place.  What's with MATTHEAS?  He actually beat WE 
GOT GAME's KASPAROV, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs were 
big at FANDILS while they watched MILDRED LEONA clobber BLACK CHAOS.  He lost 10 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ARDIVENT has a 
Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged WRATHMEN's TYNARAE 
(16-5-3), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  TYNARAE was reminded on the sands 
why UNCLE LEROY is Duelmaster.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WE GOT GAME!  In my day, no team with a 93-62-7 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, FANDILS?  What do people see in ALEKHINE?  His 6-4-2?  WE GOT GAME ain't 
talkin', but he's got 59 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that RUY LOPEZ gets in.  He fights people like GLADIUS, 8 points 
below.  I thought RUY LOPEZ showed great skill and promise when he overcame GLADIUS.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  KASPAROV was 
plum wore out after MATTHEAS pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  WE GOT GAME'll have 
to get a little better before going after MATTHEAS again!  How long have I been here? 
I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
