     Well, what are you looking at, VALAMANTIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FLOYD'S BREWERY, since HORSE 
LAKERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see TREMOR win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
THE PLAGUE beat GILBERN JUSS and GILBERN JUSS lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, MOOSEHEAD has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as MAX WEBER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, VALAMANTIS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  HORSE LAKERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like DISASTERS avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MAX WEBER was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  IVAN PAVLOV, a glorious 
8-12-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad OUT OF CONTROL.  We're all going to 
die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the VALAMANTIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
