                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TELORINTHE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PUNY ORC PELOTON, 
since BAD SIGNS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  BAD SIGNS 
turned their 4-1-1 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 KELLUMBO'S INITS. win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL beat SILVERBACK and SILVERBACK lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster STEEL MUSE challenged this turn.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as STEEL MUSE takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why 
am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, TELORINTHE?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
TELORINTHE, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  OLDIES the most avoided team? 
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BAD SIGNS.  Ha ha ha ha!  LUMP was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in TELORINTHE to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  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

Well, Dark Guy of Bad signs, do you consider that we treated you better on your round
2 return with a 4-1-1?  Well done. -- Coach

Twas certainly superior to my Oldies 2-3! (sigh) -- Coach

And, Doc LeGrand and his critters were on fire!  Nice point gain, Doc, you killer! --
Coach

I guess we Oldies should be proud we were 1-1 against you, Doc? -- Coach

Steel Muse -- Your steel was just too much for my broom. -- Custodian

Sam Tall -- Perhaps a ski lodge taker-carer-ofer is a much better position that THIS?
I'm getting interested! -- Custodian

Ambitious Guard -- Thank the MUGs for you. -- Sport

Petro Salm -- That was a sly thing for you to do to a pius little altar boy.  I
wasn't done praying, when WHAMMO! -- Altar Boy

Pyrite Puma -- You were hot; I was not.  Besides, you growl better. -- 7th & Main

Topaz Tiger -- It was MY day to howl.  Have you ever heard howling from a Catholic
church?  Me neither.  It felt and sounded G R E A T.  (Tony The Tiger taught me.) --
St Michael's

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Coach

Well, two-two, no chance to get the new warrior signed up, and the hands are deeply
involved in something else.  I guess this is it from us for personals today. -- Those
Who Walk the Middle Way (so as not to fall into the ditch)

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
