                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SNOWBOUND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  MESOPOTAMIA turned their 3-1-0 
turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see OLIVER QUEEN 
win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat BERT & ERNIE 
and BERT & ERNIE lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  THE BEATLES challenged 
SNOWBOUND's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as THE BEATLES takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  PUBLIC ENEMY was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was OPEN SESAME.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  KINGU was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
SAXAPHONE of LIFE IMPACTS for challenging up by 24 to KINGU.  SAXAPHONE lost to get 
44 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SNOWBOUND's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of SNOWBOUND.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
