                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I won't say no, Airslicer Dan, but I will say that I'm surprised at you.  Can't
you hang onto the title?

                                     Charlie Eksa

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ROCANIS.  MVP award for EBRIA GANNET?  
MIDDLE WAY 20's proud of her after beating RABID GOPHER and getting 9 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  RIA ROSEDANCER got smashed by FREM HARID, and lost 6 
points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome PURPLE KITTEN.  Aren't INCONSISTENT FURY proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the 
wiseguy that said ROCANIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Mylar's?  Don't look 
at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MIDDLE WAY 20 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 72-73-0 record really that scary?  I don't know what 
INCONSISTENT FURY's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from MIDDLE WAY 20, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
