I still haven't told Mom I'm writing Spyreports. She'd have a cow! Well, here we go... Talk about yer big time losers! MASHVILLE HAMMER got smashed by TENDERIZED DUCK, and lost 10 points! What a putz! STEELHORSE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title. No one said he was a genius... Was that a tear I saw in KILLIAN TEN VIR's eye, as he took over Duelmastership? And wasn't SWEET ANELLA fit to be tied! Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates? Don't ask me! So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway? It can't be for these really neat Spyreports can it? MIGHTY DUCKS was the most avoided team. Is a 249-224-8 record really that scary? Is there some deep dark secret why MIGHTY HEROES' been avoiding MIGHTY DUCKS so much? Or is it just that they're too scared? People were asking me did ROPE MAN REALLY challenge BETTER DUCK? (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BETTER DUCK wants me to write about it since he was overcame by ROPE MAN. Satisfied? What does a fighter fight for? I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone gets killed. Not after four more fights. Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? Write! (Or have someone write for you.) I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid. Who would've guessed I'd be a famous Spyreporter? I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop. Remember you guys, ease up sometimes! Chill out!
