                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JURINE once again!  What's with TOAD MOB?  He actually beat 
MEDAL OF HONOR G10's CLYDE CHOATE, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at BATTLE FROGS 01-14 while they watched THUNDER SNOW clobber 
SPOT ROAST.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ERRATA's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
REWARD.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MEDAL OF HONOR G10.  In my day, no team with a 46-29-3 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, CANINE CUISINE?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SERGEANT 4!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, SERGEANT 4, but you have to pay your 
dues.  Being challenged by CHICKEN POODLE SOUP, 34 points above you, is dues.  
CHICKEN POODLE SOUP overcame SERGEANT 4.  I bet CHICKEN POODLE SOUP could beat 
two-year-olds, too.  Well, MEDAL OF HONOR G10 knows who to set their sights on.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that WOK THE DOG gets 
in.  He fights people like HANDY ILSONDER, 14 points below.  I thought WOK THE DOG 
showed great skill and promise when he overcame HANDY ILSONDER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of JURINE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     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
