                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ERINIKA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, THE FLYING FISHES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought PALINDROMES was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-1-0!  CALENDAR 
GIRLS showed ERINIKA what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk 
off with 3-0-0.  What's with TUESDAY WELD?  She actually beat MIDDLE WAY 18's WILLA 
VERVET, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE 
BEGINNING.  EVE lost 12 points to BELGIAN WAFFLE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe EVE will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did KITTY wimp out, or just 
get lazy?  Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam 
for ALPHABET SOUP's outstanding member, Duelmaster R.S.I..  Wouldn't it be nice to 
have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was THE FLYING FISHES.  In my day, no team with a 53-61-5 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, WORLDWIDE GORE?  What do people see in WONTON NOT 
NOW?  His 10-4-0?  PALINDROMES ain't talkin', but he's got 82 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if FRISBEE 
can return from the Dark Arena.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
