                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  GASHOUSE GANG?  Who?  MIDDLE WAY 18 is the top 
team these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a 
perceptive observation?) as THE BEGINNING can attest...  THE BEGINNING had cause to 
celebrate, after THE BIG BANG got 15 points by beating YILDOR ZANE.  Can you believe 
it?  ADAM apparently has better things to do as ERINIKA's Duelmaster than show up and 
fight!  Now I can't insult WONTON NOT NOW, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  
Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of DUDS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of DUDS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as PALINDROMES apparently had more important 
things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  
Congratulations, THE BIG BANG.  The manager of MIDDLE WAY 18 should have sent YILDOR 
ZANE to the Dark Arena for having a 2-16-0 long ago.  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
