                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ERINIKA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  GASHOUSE GANG were a 
bunch of dogs after WHO DA MAN? got through with 'em!  1st ain't so sweet as 5th!  
Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not WHO DA MAN?'s opponents, after watching 
them shoot up the ranks from 19th to 5th.  What's with JERKBALL?  He actually beat 
ERINIKA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at DUDS.  BAG LADY lost 4 points to T-4 STRAIN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe BAG LADY will provide more easy wins...  What a role model for 
ERINIKA's young 'uns!  BIG IN JAPAN becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no 
more!  I'm sure ERINIKA is excited about MAROHM, the new Duelmaster from WRATHMEN 2.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ERINIKA thinks WHO DA 
MAN? and their 123-172-6 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The 
bums at DUDS couldn't face the challenges from WHO DA MAN?!  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!   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
