                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  VALAMANTIS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but CM - SCORPIO really goofed with their 0-0-0.  MVP 
award for BATTERED BILLY?  WEIRD STUDENTS' proud of him after beating JIM DIGRIZ and 
getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JIM DIGRIZ's match with BATTERED 
BILLY cost him a loss of 16 points!  Was that a tear I saw in STRIKE 2's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't XI AQUILAE fit to be tied!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
