                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, dear.  I didn't expect Kona Quail to be QUITE this annoyed with me.  After
all, how was I to know that those were his lucky coffee beans?
     And I never cared for Kung-Fu particularly.  Yes, no doubt it IS useful to know
how to defend yourself without weapons, in case you FIND yourself without weapons,
but when you can HAVE them, I say you SHOULD.  That's what weapons are FOR.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ILLIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, ISLANDERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see KIRRALA win a fight and gain 13 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KIRRALA beat LA JOLLA and LA JOLLA lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, 
as ROSE SHELL stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ILLIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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

Rave -- Fare you well, I'm going south to find a REAL sea with SURF.  And then I'm
going to sit on a beach under a palm tree and just listen to it while drinking milk
out of a coconut with a straw. -- Kona Quail

La Jolla -- The whole thing just makes me tired today.  Maybe it's a case of Seasonal
Affective Disorder. -- Stinagree

Gisborne -- Born in Gis?  Oooo-kay. -- Kirrala

Paparangi -- Not my papa, you ain't.  If I may put it so crudely and redundantly,
since someone has probably already said that more than once. -- Chervil Ben

A salute to those absent teams and gladiators who participated in the autumn tourney.
Come back!  We miss you. -- Jorja and the Islanders
