                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRICORUS once again!  Hmmmph!  I always thought XCOM CHARLIE was 
an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DARK HORSEMEN's 
3rd moved them up to 2-3-0 place.  What's with TRISKADEL?  She actually beat 
TRICORUS' PERSISTANT BEGGAR, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at VENTURE BROS. while they watched THE CAPTAIN clobber ONE EYE DARK. 
He lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure 
TRICORUS is excited about RUNAWAY JIM, the new Duelmaster from PHISH.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  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, BATTLE FROGS 03-13!  In my day, no team with a 27-21-2 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, VENTURE BROS.?  What do people see in THE CAPTAIN?  His 13-9-1?  
VENTURE BROS. ain't talkin', but he's got 58 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is DARK HORSEMEN getting weak?  What sort of warriors let a 
comrade fall without getting revenge?  Times have changed...  Many a warrior has met 
his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
TRICORUS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
