                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I had a hard time getting the Hands to do this "column," but I tell you here, if
someone tries to feed ME chopped rabbit, I'm going to say something!  Bleh!
Disgusting stuff.  Let the Dogs have it.

                                      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 SUPERIOR FORCES 60 got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  SUPERIOR FORCES 60 is now ranked 1st with a 3-0-0 turn.  What's with ANON?  He 
actually beat RED DOG GANG's SLIPPERS, and walked away with 27 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at RED DOG GANG.  FENWRIST lost 17 points to Q MARK.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe FENWRIST will provide more easy wins...  ARADI, set your 
sights on KUNG-FU MASTER.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests after defeating 
ELIN GISSORS.  ANON looked pretty Duelmasterlike as he took ARADI's top spot with 86 
points.  Now, what will ELIN GISSORS do?  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     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, UNNAMEABLES!  The bums at SUPERIOR FORCES 60 couldn't face the challenges 
from UNNAMEABLES!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  DIGGITY DOG larned his lesson (PREEIRA taught it 
well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any SUPERIOR FORCES 60 members 
with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
