     And, once again, Fight Day.  Conveniently sandwiched between breakfast and
lunch.  I suppose it's that "end of school, beginning of summer" thing?
     We here in Home Guard had thirteen fights.  If I weren't dead, I'd blush in
shame before the other spy reporters.  What Zontani Sharp-eyes had to say, not to
mention Snide Clemens, shouldn't be repeated, but you can probably imagine it.
Thirteen fights involving two standbys.  Three challenge matches.  Collusion was
avoided by Military Mayhem, and Blood Pie got the most challenges.

     JOHN WAYNE HAMMER (42-4213) (21-34-2,75) of KLK RANGE HAMMERZ fought GWYN AP
NUDD (41-1210) (20-4-0,79) of CAER SIDHE.  JOHN WAYNE HAMMER demolished GWYN AP NUDD
in a popular 1 minute mismatched match.
     SOUL SCOURGE (25-1223) (20-9-2,89) of THE ILLUMINATI fought HUW AP HUW (35-3030)
(20-54-0,45) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SOUL SCOURGE bested HUW AP HUW in a crowd pleasing
1 minute conflict.
     BLOODY BRAINLESS (96-2206) (18-19-4,94) of BLOODY RANDOMNESS fought SUI GENERIS
(38-4444) (17-9-0,58) of ALL FINESSE.  BLOODY BRAINLESS was overpowered by SUI
GENERIS in a 1 minute one-sided match.
     BLOOD PIE (96-1918) (24-24-5,148) of WHY SELL THIS? fought FAST-FINGERS FRED
(101-7) (0-0-0,110) of Miscellaneous Bods.  BLOOD PIE overpowered FAST-FINGERS FRED
in a 2 minute one-sided melee.  You will note that this is Most Challenged Blood Pie
fighting a standby?  Some days I have to wonder what those statisticians in the
Office use for brains.

     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (43-84-1,168) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought DON KING (47-
5374) (25-21-2,149) of ROYAL FLUSH.  MATH OP OWAIN was vanquished by DON KING in a
popular 1 minute one-sided duel.
     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (65-94-0,172) of JUST BECAUSE fought OWAIN HARLSON (35-
3130) (27-40-1,122) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  GAR & BRILL vanquished OWAIN HARLSON in an
action packed 1 minute gory uneven duel.
     THE SINGING BANDIT (11-6349) (33-40-0,172) of GERFEL'S FRIENDS fought CADAL (35-
1370) (46-91-4,140) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  THE SINGING BANDIT slimly won victory over
CADAL in a popular 5 minute competition.
     HEAD CHEESE (96-1920) (32-16-3,205) of WHY SELL THIS? fought RIPPY BRICKBOY
(101-1) (0-0-0,200) of Miscellaneous Bods.  HEAD CHEESE outlasted RIPPY BRICKBOY in a
20 minute brutal struggle.
     BLACK EYES (46-2820) (31-25-0,181) of THE FURIOUS FIVE fought TAVIS CADFALSON
(35-1419) (36-91-2,181) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  BLACK EYES was murdered by TAVIS
CADFALSON in a 1 minute mismatched competition.  Murder is a hard word.  I'm not sure
it's the right one here.

     AARON (56-3636) (19-9-3,34) of AVERAGE GUYS challenged SNOTMAN (97-2611) (13-4-
5,59) of COLLUSION.  Up 25.  AARON luckily beat SNOTMAN in a 2 minute gruesome
Challenge fight.
     I OF THE KNEE DOLL (71-3532) (13-12-1,57) of HAZAARDS OF CLONING challenged
JAMES MADISON (99-1268) (16-11-3,82) of DEAD PRESIDENTS, YO.  Up 25.  I OF THE KNEE
DOLL vanquished JAMES MADISON in a 1 minute uneven Challenge battle.
     COMMANDER SPUD (31-5149) (14-11-1,49) of MILITARY MAYHEM challenged SANDMAN (97-
2610) (14-3-4,96) of COLLUSION.  Up 47.  COMMANDER SPUD bested SANDMAN in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute Challenge fight.

     TENACIOUS (7-5337) (68-34-1,233) of BATHTUB ARMADA fought SCRAPPLE (97-1961)
(28-20-3,207) of WHY SELL THIS?.  TENACIOUS viciously subdued SCRAPPLE in a popular 7
minute gory Title contest.  Congratulations to Tenacious are probably in order.  On
order?  Coming soon to a newsletter near you.
