                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRICORUS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, RAISING R'LYEH, since 
SEA DOGS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see DRUNKEN SAILOR win a fight and gain 14 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG FU MASTER beat BARNACLE and BARNACLE lost 15 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TRICORUS may be 
getting bland, as CARGO stays top dog in the city.  The Blue Dolphin Inn, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TRICORUS' 
trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  TRICORUS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
SEA DOGS 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 
RAISING R'LYEH.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the TRICORUS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
