                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  Woof!  KIWI CONNECTION were a bunch of dogs 
after DREW'S BOYS got through with 'em!  1st ain't so sweet as 2nd!  Hmmmph!  I 
always thought PLAY BALL was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-1-0!  
Welcome to ERINIKA, KNUCKLES!  We need more teams who can get a 2-1-0 their first 
time out!  What's with SKIN PEELER?  He actually beat KNUCKLES' BRASS KNUCKLES, and 
walked away with 37 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ERINIKA while 
they watched CONVICTED ASSASSIN clobber THOMAS.  He lost 18 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure ERINIKA is excited about LAELKORISSA, 
the new Duelmaster from FAVORITE GUYS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as 
I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DREW'S BOYS!  The 
bums at THE BULLS couldn't face the challenges from DREW'S BOYS!  No excuse for that! 
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
