                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of LIN 
TIRIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see RICE & BEANS win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
RICE & BEANS beat MONSTER MASH and MONSTER MASH lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as 
STEAMED MUSCLES 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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

Steamed Muscles -- We know it happens.  Tiger will be missed... up to a point.  He
was an average sort of guy, except for his temper.  He had an adex in temper!  11-9-
16-11-13-13-11.  With more attention from the management, he would doubtless have
done better.  Eh. -- the remaining Sand Dancers

One Armed Bandit -- Probably that returning manager is delaying for the tourney or
something. -- Jorja

I, um, don't want you to have another death on your conscience, especially mine! --
