A partial transcript of this week's Treehouse Fort, featuring Zach Harper of Talk Hoops.
Tuffy: Brett Favre's first game at Lambeau Field since leaving the Packers went as expected: some Packers fans booed, others wore Favre jerseys, and the seventh seal was broken, bringing the Trumpets of Angels and beckoning the end of the world. And Fox is now making those Angels' apocalyptic brass tones available on iTunes! Go to fox.com/endoftheworld for more, including a Til Death marathon!
Suss: The Spurs-Kings game saw an unusual Halloween twist as a bat began flying around the arena during the game. The bat was eventually apprehended by Manu Ginobili. When the bat flew right by Ginobili, he simply fell to the ground, and the referees called the charge.
Tuffy: Andre Agassi admitted this week to taking crystal meth and possibly speed during his playing career. In unrelated news, Jeremy Mayfield has joined the Champions Series for aging tennis pros.
Suss: On Halloween night, Taco Bell gave out a free taco to anyone who walked into the store. Oddly enough, the only person who didn't receive one was Juan Pablo Montoya.
Tuffy: ESPN's Outside the Lines has uncovered at least three instances of court documents and personal testimony implicating Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable in violence against women, including two ex-wives. Al Davis, when reached for comment, muttered that at least he had a hard-hitting coach before excusing himself to finish his preparations for his final battle against God.
Suss: And finally, No. 5 USC lost to Oregon 47-20 on Saturday, the most points Southern Cal has allowed in a game since 1996. Analysts say it was the worst protection USC has ever used since Matt Leinart received the results of his paternity test.
