     A standby?  How embarrassing.

                                          -- Chaego ten Selah

P.S.  I could get tired of this.  I should GRADUATE.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DAL SHANG this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SIOUX fought ROT and gained 
22 points and contributed to POSSE's 1-2-0.  ROT has lost to SIOUX, falling 18 
points, while helping make THAT SMELL a 2-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, CHAEGO TEN SELAH kept DAL SHANG's warrior, LENDO TEN CHARDIN, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Blazing Unicorn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE MOTHERSHIP CE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were DAL SHANG's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided THE MOTHERSHIP CE stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was TMM EXPERIMENTS 23.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that DAL SHANG has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in DAL SHANG again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

better than Chaego could do. -- Hurl Li

little.  Teach me well, please! -- High-End Bun
