                       Reflections by the Champion of the Horn

     No clue why I'm up here on the throne.  Everyone knows to not get in the way of
a bride.  It is her show, all the time!  The only one more dangerous than The Bride
is, of course, the Mother of The Bride.
     But last week, I baffled the Bride by coming out on to the stands and telling
her how beautiful she looked.  She just stood there, amazed, not expecting just a
simple compliment.
     I guess until the wedding is over, brides are just crazy and unpredictable.  My
stay up here won't be long, following in tradition with Assur's other warrior to sit
here on the throne.

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, Storm Rockers, here we are with a spy report based on the very latest
data!  No "first quick notes" for us, this is based on the Last Word.
     If any manager had directed his warriors to avoid those of some other manager,
it would have been Dragonbane Guild's manager Nomad avoiding Master Darque, manager
of Darque Ages (and others).  But there were no avoids posted!  So the scribes are
just guessing.
     Evangelion got the most challenges, which was not difficult.  Especially the
part about her getting more challenges than the "duelmaster."  Why?  Because only one
manager was issuing challenges:  Assurnasirbanipal.
     We had fourteen total fights, two challenges, and four standbys.

     HUGH CAPET (81-690) (24-30-4,59) of DARQUE AGES fought ALASTARIAN DESERTER (107-
1) (0-0-0,30) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGH CAPET was defeated by ALASTARIAN
DESERTER in an action packed 1 minute struggle.  This has got to be seriously
embarrassing for Hugh.
     RUTH (18-10121) (30-23-0,100) of SHEPHERDS fought COPERNICUS (81-163) (23-11-
1,66) of DARQUE AGES.  RUTH outwaited COPERNICUS in an action packed 7 minute fight.
Is this part of Ruth's wonderful relationship with Copernicus?  Nosy minds wonder.
     VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (33-46-1,141) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought FLOYD
(107-10) (0-0-0,150) of Fine Imported Standbys.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was narrowly
defeated by FLOYD in a popular 3 minute bloody brawl.  Another win by a standby!
What are things coming to?
     PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (41-51-0,144) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought POCKET NEWS (19-
5364) (18-13-0,94) of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  PINCH BLISTER slimly lost to POCKET NEWS
in a crowd pleasing 6 minute brutal conflict.  This is the fight that resulted in the
biggest point movement:  Pocket News up 33, Pinch Blister down 25.
     1977 AMC MATADOR (42-4116) (60-48-0,157) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought ANZAHANZEK (7-
6204) (24-14-0,143) of SENTINELS.  1977 AMC MATADOR overpowered ANZAHANZEK in a 2
minute one-sided match.  It was the red cape.  Ole!
     JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (45-35-0,159) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought THE UPRIGHT MAN
(10-5185) (28-28-0,168) of ALASTARIAN IDOL.  JELLO KNUCKLES beat THE UPRIGHT MAN in a
popular 1 minute melee.  Drowning in a sea of jello?

     THE BRIDE (45-4180) (51-25-2,190) of DARQUE FORCES fought CLOTTO (107-25) (0-0-
0,181) of Fine Imported Standbys.  THE BRIDE lost to CLOTTO in a popular 3 minute
gory duel.  What!  Another win by a standby?  Very strange.
     RAGGEDY ANN (45-4148) (52-31-0,199) of DARQUE FORCES fought VERMICIOUS KNID
(107-30) (0-0-0,240) of Fine Imported Standbys.  RAGGEDY ANN was viciously subdued by
VERMICIOUS KNID in an action packed 4 minute duel.  And the fourth standby, fourth
win for a standby.  I feel sure that the standbys are buying drinks for everybody
tonight.
     THE HYPHEN-DASH (42-4499) (39-30-1,188) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought LHISSON (29-
5456) (48-44-0,185) of MID EARTH.  THE HYPHEN-DASH handily defeated LHISSON in an
action packed 1 minute uneven fight.  That shouldn't have been "uneven," but if a
gladiator will spend the night before the fights getting drunk, the said gladiator
can expect an ignominious loss, yes?
     MOIST TOWELETTE (42-4430) (83-46-4,255) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought HEINRIK (81-
1257) (47-45-1,207) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  MOIST TOWELETTE overpowered HEINRIK in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided struggle.  An obvious outcome there.
     FROO-FROO (18-9589) (74-37-4,233) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought SHINY PENNY (32-
3789) (78-131-2,198) of FOUND IN THE SAND.  FROO-FROO demolished SHINY PENNY in an
action packed 1 minute mismatched competition.  Oops!  The Penny has acquired a bit
of tarnish.
     ALMOST PRETTY (42-4496) (67-39-0,220) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought FAN ZHEN (81-
1288) (39-29-2,212) of DARQUE AGES.  ALMOST PRETTY devastated FAN ZHEN in a popular 1
minute one-sided contest.  Maybe Almost Pretty, but definitely Very Determined.

The challenges:
     GAD (18-9239) (41-49-1,199) of SHEPHERDS challenged EVANGELION (59-2340) (43-34-
1,207) of IMPROVED ILLUSION.  Up 8.  GAD slimly won victory over EVANGELION in a
popular 17 minute Challenge match.  This gave me time to write the entire spy report
up to this point, so there wasn't much left.

For the title and the Horn:
     JOSH (18-9109) (35-34-0,250) of SHEPHERDS challenged AZAGHAL (81-1223) (36-34-
1,217) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Down 33.  JOSH devastated AZAGHAL in an action packed 1
minute mismatched Challenge Title fight.  Even enough on the grounds of fights
fought.  I congratulate Josh for not resting on his laurels (who'd want to, since
laurels are prickly?), and for winning, Azaghal for making the effort.
