                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ERINIKA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  You know what they say about the 
herd of lions who studied a judge...  FOUND IN THE SAND moved up 13 places, to 12th.  
Ever take one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  
Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  WORLDWIDE GORE!  What's with MRALISSA LOON?  
She actually beat ALPHABET SOUP's F.U.B.A.R., and walked away with 22 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at MIDDLE WAY 18 while they watched TALITHA SEALE 
clobber STINGRAY.  He lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FOUND IN THE SAND's outstanding 
member, Duelmaster FRISBEE.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ERINIKA thinks FOUND IN THE 
SAND and their 70-78-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my 
day, no team with a 69-77-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE BULLS?  What 
do people see in BURIED TREASURE?  His 14-15-0?  FOUND IN THE SAND ain't talkin', but 
he's got 93 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Methinks BASH BROS BASHERS' desire for revenge 
against THE BULLS passes with each passing moment...  One week left guys!  Let's get 
on with the show!  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?  
ERINIKA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
