                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ERINIKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, MAJOR LEAGUERS, since 
GASHOUSE GANG took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Why not, I'm 
having a good day, so I feel sorry for FEAR FACTORY 12, who went 0-1-0 and dropped 13 
into 20th.  Here's my pity, for what it's worth.  Look out below!  FEAR FACTORY 15 is 
on the way down, falling to 21st from 8th with a 0-3-0!  Ha ha ha ha!  GASHOUSE GANG 
turned their 5-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see PEARLS B4 SWINE win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PEARLS B4 
SWINE beat SEVER THE KING and SEVER THE KING lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  TURKEY VULTURE challenged ERINIKA's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as TURKEY VULTURE takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  WRATHMEN 2 was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CALENDAR GIRLS.  Ha ha ha ha!  ROGER DORN was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ERINIKA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ERINIKA to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens
