                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARADI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  RED DOG GANG were a bunch of 
dogs after RESCUE RANGERS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's 
with EVENING STAR?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 25's CHILMAN ELSE, and walked away 
with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SUPERIOR FORCES 60 while they 
watched EVENING STAR clobber CHILMAN ELSE.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VIRGINAL 
GIGOLO, BUT CATIPILLAR is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition 
points!  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS!  
In my day, no team with a 115-164-9 would scare me off!  What's the problem, RESCUE 
RANGERS?  What do people see in CHIQUITA CHIWAWA?  Hers 9-14-0?  RED DOG GANG ain't 
talkin', but she's got 41 points.   
     Warriors of ARADI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some advice: 
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
