Woe is the day that the Techo fan gets laryngitis! Luckily this wasn't happening on Day 9 (June 9th) of the Altador Cup. One clean sweep to report today and not just a swift whack from the Yurble Janitor's broom!

Snow fell on Mystery Island when a blizzard blew in from the ominous Terror Mountain. It was so cold that even the Tiki Tack Man had to pack up shop and head home to a nice fire! Team Terror Mountain have been partying non-stop since last night. "Slushies are on us!" Prytariel proclaimed boistrously over party music. Team Mystery Island looked slightly anxious after being swept. "Mumbo Pango is not happy. Will his wrath reach our opponents first or us? We do not know," Lor Benneveldt from Team Mystery Island wondered nervously.

Team Tyrannia could not claim a sweep against Team Shenkuu as Captain Mirsha Grelinek put her whole strength into Shootout Showdown after they lost Yooyuball to the rockstars. "We can't afford to be swept again, it's a shame we didn't take Yooyuball but any victory is sweet right now," Mirsha said breathlessly after the match. Team Tyrannia won Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, giving them a solid victory. Harlis Neyhbol said, "Three outta four ain't bad."

Solar power did nothing against lunar light in yesterday's match between Team Altador and Team Kreludor. Altador took Slushie Slinger, but the rest went straight to the Kreludans. "Our fans just weren't that thirsty during the match," Captain Derlyn Fonnet explained with a shrug. "They deal well with long periods of time without fluids." Young Timu from Team Altador said, "Our fans spotted Kreludor's weakness and took advantage of that... it was a smart move! Go Altador!"

Team Faerieland claimed wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger yesterday, only to draw in Shootout Showdown against Team Moltara. Valtonous Rea of Faerieland said, "We really put our hearts into this match. Elbin is proving to be a great addition to the team and is settling in well. Team Moltara are doing a bit better this year." Mor Gollog of Team Moltara said, "At least the fans won Make Some Noise for us. Nothing beats thousands of Neopians calling your name!"

The pirates stormed the citadel yesterday and stole wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Team Krawk Island lost Make Some Noise to Team Darigan Citadel, but forced a draw in Slushie Slinger. Tormo "The Terror" Frein from DC shook his fist at the pirates. "You aren't getting away with that, scallywags!" To which Team Krawk Island snickered and said that was only the beginning of their exploits.

Team Lost Desert had a very choppy set of results against Team Kiko Lake in a match that left them feeling a bit sick. "So many Kikos..." Vonde Cayle from Team Lost Desert groaned, lying down on a bench on the sidelines. "So many..." The Desert Squad won Yooyuball and drew in Make Some Noise, but Kiko Lake managed to win both Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Holbie Pinnock of Kiko Lake grinned widely. "You know, after Lost Desert boasted so many victories last year, it's kind of nice to be one-up over them this year."

Elon: OMG A DRAW, NO WAI! Let me outta here nao.Team Maraqua couldn't quite best Team Virtupets as they lost Make Some Noise and drew Yooyuball against the Space Station. "We locked Elon in his wardrobe for a few hours after that match until he calmed down," Tonie Plessix of Maraqua explained, facepalming. "He started talking rubbish so we had to take action." Sela Pretore of Virtupets giggled. "Elon is really funny sometimes after an unsettling result. More often than not he's a jerk but occasionally his attitude just makes me laugh. It was a good match." Maraqua won Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, so at least Elon couldn't complain about those!

There were no real winners in the Haunted Woods versus Meridell match, as both teams drew in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, leaving a win for Meridell in Slushie Slinger and a win for the Spooky Squad in Shootout Showdown. "Now THAT was an evenly matched game," Gregorio Maille from Meridell mused, looking at the results again. "It was really close." Zo Junior of the Haunted Woods had this to say, "The knights really took us by surprise! They had all the moves right, it was hard to match, but we managed it."

King Roo: Hello! I'm King Roo of the absolutely amazing Roo Island! I'm a bit wacky and love to eat gummy sweets, yum! ¡uʍop əpısdn sı ʇuoɟ ʎɯ 'ʞool ɥo... Ah that's better. Today I'm taking a break from Dice-A-Roo to state my comments about my favourite team (Team Roo Island), and their opponents' (Team Brightvale) match. Hmm, well it's a lot faster than Dice-A-Roo but I have seen my team practice and they are very good at it! I always wonder whether Gordo Gunnels will eat the Practice Team during sign-up week. But nevermind! Naturally the Roos won... because we ROOl! And winning Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Slinger Slushies (oh, is it Slushie Slinger? My mistake) *ʇı sʞɔɐɥʍ* ¡¿uıɐƃɐ uʍop əpısdn ʇuoɟ ʎɯ sı ʎɥʍ ¿ʇɐɥʍ... *coughs* Geez, you can't get the technology these days! Team Brightvale won Slushie Slinger for some reason, not sure why, but snagilooR ym sa hcum sa ragus otni ton era yllaer yeht... WHAT? Who keeps messing with my font? *Ahem* My Rooligans prefer sugar more than them, basically, I do apologise I seem to be having technological difficulties. Now, everyone take out your Roo Island Spirit Flags and show them who's boss. Because ROOmour has it that we Rooligans can strike our opponents down and shake the ROOm with our awesomeness. Oh, and good match, Team Brightvale! Mind if I call you "Brightvalue"? It sounds so much more... comical :). Cheery-bye!

Captain Brynn will be joining us tomorrow in the VIP Booth, still sporting Team Faerieland and Team Brightvale gear. She really knows how to style :P!
