                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, I HATE TOURNEYS, since MEDAL 
OF HONOR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see SNOWBALL II win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, SNOWBALL II beat KOGAN DJIAN and KOGAN DJIAN lost 17 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting 
bland, as TAX MAIL-IN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  MEDAL 
OF HONOR, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was I HATE TOURNEYS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GREELO DUFFUS was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have VEAL SORENTO in a 
challenge, going down 11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VEAL SORENTO 
showed great skill and promise when he won victory over GREELO DUFFUS.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAYLA KIV's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Three-two!  This time, we beat the Snowballs AND Duelmasters.  Weird to say that
last, it sounds inside-out or something.  No standbys for us, of course. -- Kogan
