                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Spot said we shouldn't let a Hoffa be the leader of the pack here, so I stepped
up and did a Good Dog's job.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for HANS GRUBER, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing KOTTER 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was MYSTIQUE, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
BALKO DUNN.  Well, everybody's pal DIGGITY DOG moved his record to 21-12-2 by 
defeating ANON in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 17 recognition points.  4 
out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that 
location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  ANON II:  THE REMATCH.  Ask 
not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARADI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
