                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JURINE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with COUNT DOOKU?  
He actually beat JURINE's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 21 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at STAR WARS.  GENERAL GRIEVOUS lost 8 points to 
CELINE DEE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GENERAL GRIEVOUS will provide more 
easy wins...  ZENSU LASAGNA was reminded on the sands why HAN SOLO is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was SHEWISH BUFFET.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at CANINE CUISINE ain't 
reelin'!  SHEWISH BUFFET's mad!  Taunt your opponent VENTRESS!  That was my lucky 
charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 19 points!)  RACK OF LAB should have 
an easy win.  RACK OF LAB beat VENTRESS.  CANINE CUISINE calls this fighting?  In my 
day...  VINDA YARRO didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from 
CHICKEN POODLE SOUP of CANINE CUISINE, who is 22 points below her.  CHICKEN POODLE 
SOUP perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was overcame by VINDA YARRO and 
ended up with 72 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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
