                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see KAI DARTHAYEL win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
KAI DARTHAYEL beat SALMGEDAN and SALMGEDAN lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And if variety is the spice of life, TRICORUS may be getting bland, as DEAN stays top 
dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  
You want to know what's new, don't you, TRICORUS?   
     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.  
PANSY DIVISION the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
it looks like VENTURE BROS. avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, BEFORE SUNRISE of DARK HORSEMEN has added the final loss to hers 
14-15-0.  Tee hee!  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Hmm.  Debby Tonte says, "DARK HORSEMEN was TRICORUS' most avoided team.  Is there
some award for that?"  IS there?  We wouldn't mind! -- Jorja

Quizboy -- You are so hairy, I took you for a hedgehog, and I had a flash of
inspiration.  A flamingo!  Amazing how well it worked. -- Windsong

Dean -- That gives you fourteen wins, so you can graduate any time now.  We'd be glad
to give you a going-away party. -- Salmgedan
P.S.  At least you aren't a killer like your brother.  Gotta be glad for something.

The Veteran Mercenary is low and despicable, and I have demonstrated my despick as
