                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ROCANIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, MEDAL OF HONOR A11 had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MIDDLE WAY 20!  Way to go 
MIDDLE WAY 20!  MVP award for SHADOWS?  THEM's proud of him after beating ISAM KORL 
and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  NEWTON PYNE got smashed by 
JIMMY THE HAND, and lost 9 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  SWYTAI 
stopped THE SCYTHE dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of CLONE WARS must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are THEM?  CLONE WARS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Can MIDDLE WAY 20's NEWTON PYNE be more popular than 
me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

graduate, and make it to the desired tourney.  We wish you well. -- those who walk
