A partial transcript of this week’s Treehouse Fort, which featured Rob and Kris from WalkoffWalk.com.

Suss: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said this week he would like to see the league extend its regular season to 17 or 18 games. He also has a plan on the table that will extend the Rams season to four games.

Suss: In an effort to increase awareness about the environment, the Philadelphia Phillies created an eco-friendly mascot, Phil The Can, a talking remote-controlled trash can wearing a Phillies helmet. When asked why they created this mascot, a spokesman said that John Kruk wasn’t available.

Tuffy: In other sports marketing news, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Brett Myers has been announced as the replacement spokesman for ShamWow.

Tuffy: Japan defeated Korea 5-3 in 10 innings in Los Angeles to take the World Baseball Classic title. Japan led 3-2 in the ninth when young phenom Yu Darvish allowed the tying run in the ninth. Apparently, “Yu Darvish” is Japanese for “Todd Jones”.

Suss: Looking to spruce up golf telecasts and boost ratings, the PGA will put microphones on caddies. Should the idea fail, the PGA will go to their backup idea: a talking trash can. Failing that, John Daly.

Suss: The Atlanta Hawks are experiencing a growing problem with fans being sold counterfeit tickets. The Hawks have advised fans to be on the lookout for any tickets that mention a Jon Koncak number retirement ceremony at halftime vs. the Sonics.
