                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAL SHANG.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  DAL SHANG 
watched with glee as TOLBIN'S GEMS got knocked off top spot by MEDAL OF HONOR C11!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  SUPERNATURAL is now ranked 4th with a 1-0-0 turn.  What's with SERGEANT 2? 
He actually beat LEATHER AND LACE's STEVIE, and walked away with 24 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at POSSE.  GUNSLINGER lost 13 points to APACHE FOG.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GUNSLINGER will provide more easy wins...  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for MEDAL OF HONOR C11's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
SERGEANT 7.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, WITCHERS!  In my day, no team with a 1-6-0 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, GRIZZLED VETERANS?  What do people see in AN YEE?  His 4-17-1?  SAND DANCERS 
ain't talkin', but he's got 30 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in 
their place.  I guess you could say MEDAL OF HONOR C11'SERGEANT 2 did just that.  
Right LEATHER AND LACE?  Better to die a quick death in the prime of life than to 
endure an eternity of constant pain, eternal boredom...  Does LEATHER AND LACE agree? 
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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

I got SUCH a banging around for "two-three is quite acceptable," you wouldn't BELIEVE
it.  Well, maybe you would, but from Jorja?  I didn't think she was paying attention.
My mistake!  This time, we got a four-one, with only that wimp An Yee losing.  Okay,
ONE win was over a standby, but we can go with that, can't we?  It isn't like we
SOUGHT OUT the aforesaid standby.  It was the handicapper's idea, really.  And when
the standby showed UP, well, we didn't want Norben to LOSE, so what else could he do?
Life didn't used to be this complicated.  I'm not sure I like it. -- Gorban ten Skora
