                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARDIVENT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE 27 
CLUB, but FANDILS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for EARL?  FANDILS' 
proud of him after beating VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  RUY LOPEZ's match with GRANDMA CLARA cost him a loss of 14 points!  
What a putz!  WINEHOUSE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and 
loses the title.  No one said she was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in GRANDMA 
CLARA's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't RUY LOPEZ fit to be tied!  
I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  THE 27 CLUB was the most avoided team.  Is a 168-135-7 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what FANDILS' been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from THE 27 CLUB, that's fer sher.  Can WE GOT GAME's RUY 
LOPEZ be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARDIVENT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
