                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     No personals.  No column.  I can hardly hold my head up among the other spy
reporters!  The only thing that maintains my self-respect is our number of fights,
and that we have challenges.  Sixty-eight fights, twelve challenges, eleven standbys,
and (I think) two deaths.  It COULD be worse.  So instead of letting the Unknown
Spymaster take this report--he had a bag over his head and didn't see a thing--here's
a little bit of current events in Home Guard.
     Major point movements:  Robert Johnson, up forty.  56th and Wabasha, down
thirty-two.  If I write out the numbers, it pads the text and makes it look more
important, you know.
     Most avoided:  T-3, by Otto's Parts.  Most challenged:  Hoffa.  I'm not sure
which Hoffa, but one of them.

Because I'm not inclined to give you blow-by-blow comments on sixty-eight fights,
here are the deaths I found, the challenge matches, and the title match.

The deaths:
     ETHER (36-7552) (29-24-0,87) of STILLMATIC fought SLITHERING IDIOT (10-6105)
(28-13-0,62) of SERPENTS' HOLD.  ETHER executed SLITHERING IDIOT in a 1 minute one-
sided struggle.  Proof that being an idiot can be hazardous to your health.
     56TH AND WABASHA (16-6042) (18-7-3,74) of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS fought B&G BOUNCER
(101-3) (0-0-0,30) of the Louts Local 101.  56TH AND WABASHA was executed by B&G
BOUNCER in a 1 minute one-sided match.  That's got to be SERIOUSLY embarrassing.

The challenges:
     SAVAGE BEATING (35-4339) (24-27-0,61) of HAPPY FUN TIME challenged MC SHAN (18-
10307) (19-17-0,60) of HIP HOP HEROES.  Down 1.  SAVAGE BEATING was viciously subdued
by MC SHAN in a 3 minute Challenge contest.  Wow, My Hero, Mc Shan!
     LEGIONNAIRE (6-6296) (20-5-1,83) of MACHINES OF WAR challenged HOFFA (18-9369)
(36-111-0,79) of ARROGANCE.  Down 4.  LEGIONNAIRE overpowered HOFFA in a crowd
pleasing 1 minute one-sided Challenge match.  Since this is the only Hoffa to have a
challenge match, he must be the Most Challenged.
     BLACKBERRY (98-3339) (8-6-5,51) of ARCANE BEACH DAY challenged DMX (25-5675)
(22-20-2,47) of SAY MY NAME.  Down 4.  BLACKBERRY was overpowered by DMX in a popular
1 minute uneven Challenge match.  Dmx gave Blackberry the raspberry?
     MR. FROST (82-4399) (24-29-1,72) of MADMAN challenged PIEHOLDEN SWEET (33-7856)
(25-27-0,85) of SUMMERTEETH.  Up 13.  MR. FROST viciously subdued PIEHOLDEN SWEET in
a 2 minute gory Challenge duel.  Froze Pieholden solid.
     ARCHERS OF LOAF (43-4837) (27-12-0,90) of UNC COLLEGE RADIO challenged COLOSSEUM
HALLS (1-8871) (29-27-0,91) of RUN DMC.  Up 1.  ARCHERS OF LOAF won victory over
COLOSSEUM HALLS in a popular 2 minute Challenge duel.  A strange pair, with names
like that, one hardly knows what to think.  When that is the case, give your brain a
rest and do NOT think.
     IMAGINATION (26-4975) (18-5-0,72) of VCU COLLEGE RADIO challenged DEADLY FORCE
(75-3513) (21-19-0,61) of CRITICALS.  Down 11.  IMAGINATION was defeated by DEADLY
FORCE in an action packed 2 minute Challenge melee.  I can't imagine how that came
about.

     FAT LIP (52-3791) (20-20-1,67) of OTTO'S PARTS challenged EDDIE VEDDER (4-6710)
(25-29-1,79) of PEARL JAM.  Up 12.  FAT LIP overpowered EDDIE VEDDER in a 2 minute
mismatched Challenge brawl.  And who's got the fat lip now, eh?  Not to mention the
cauliflower ear and other odd parts.
     BRITISH SEA POWER (32-5370) (26-15-0,96) of COLLEGE RADIO challenged JOE
WILLIAMS (6-6583) (43-33-0,105) of BLACK AND BLUES.  Up 9.  BRITISH SEA POWER
viciously subdued JOE WILLIAMS in a popular 3 minute Challenge duel.  Joe is sunk!
Or sinked, if you prefer, but that sounds too much like a simple plumbing problem.
     MANNY LEHMAN (51-5074) (39-43-1,138) of COLLEGE RADIO challenged GOPHER BAROQUE
(2-3359) (87-75-0,137) of CREAM OF THE SLOP.  Down 1.  MANNY LEHMAN was luckily
beaten by GOPHER BAROQUE in a 9 minute Challenge fight.  If it took nine minutes, was
it luck or just not having sense enough to quit?
     WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-4563) (39-40-0,132) of TEAM FLOYD challenged NEVERMIND
(84-23395) (28-38-3,136) of AL BUMS VI.  Up 4.  WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? overpowered
NEVERMIND in a 2 minute mismatched Challenge duel.  Is anyone ever going to tell us
what a Volksie is?
     CERES (99-3866) (17-17-4,144) of DODEKATHEON challenged SAURON (25-5581) (27-9-
2,148) of SAY MY NAME.  Up 4.  CERES was demolished by SAURON in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge melee.  It's probably the glowing red eye.  People see it and say, "Oh,
that old thing.  Everyone does it.  What a joke."  Then it turns out not to be a
joke.
     GRAVITRON (19-5369) (26-7-1,201) of THE MOTHERSHIP CC challenged NASTY NES (50-
142) (48-54-1,202) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  Up 1.  GRAVITRON viciously subdued NASTY NES in
a crowd pleasing 2 minute Challenge fight.  Good job.  Don't want any of that
nastiness around HERE.

For the title:
     BAKED CONVINCIA (98-2341) (48-23-4,309) of SHEWISH BANQUET fought SLAP YOURSELF
SILLY (21-4697) (58-50-0,223) of SORE LOSERS.  BAKED CONVINCIA viciously subdued SLAP
YOURSELF SILLY in a 4 minute Title bout.  Slap got slapped, Baked remains duelmaster.
Uh, Captain of the Guard.  Have you considered topping your (excellent) Baked
Convincia with a rum sauce?

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  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 $149.00 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 reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

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!
