                             Notes from the arena champ.

I wasn't prepared for this, but if I'm here next time, I will pull together a serious 
jeremiad and weep all over you.

                                      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.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, SAND DANCERS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud. 
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see TRAIN RAIL win a fight and gain 18 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TRAIN RAIL beat ARNELL NASTI and ARNELL NASTI lost 15 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN 
may be getting bland, as THE WEEPER 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the LIN TIRIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

did NOT!  I accepted it as my due. -- the Weeper
