Minihane wondered if the hosts felt “dirty” looking at the photos, knowing they were stolen.
“I felt a little dirty doing it, but I did it anyway,” Callahan said. “They both looked awesome, I’m talking about Kate Upton and Justin Verlander.”
Added Callahan: “My reaction is the hacker guy, he’s anonymous, he’s on the run, the FBI’s chasing him, I want him to come right here, to 20 Guest Street, I want to hire him. Because we have people who can’t transfer a voice mail. This guy can break into the private accounts of famous actresses. … That guy, he’s evil, but he’s smart. That’s what we want, some smart, evil guy.”
Said Dennis: “I wonder if he’s doing something profitable with his life and this skill set.”
The hacker claims to have photos of 101 celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence.
“I will say this, Jennifer Lawrence has a young face. … Like the sixth time I looked, I started feeling a little disturbed. It was weird,” Minihane joked.
– Joan Rivers remains on life support in a New York City hospital after going into cardiac arrest last week. The 81-year-old was said to be undergoing throat surgery when she was stricken.
“She had a great life,” Minihane said. “It sounds like it’s going to end here in the next couple of days.”
Said Callahan: “Is [daughter] Melissa going to survive without her? Isn’t Melissa like 50 now. And they act like, ‘Oh my God, the poor orphan child.’ ”

Welker, who has suffered three diagnosed concussions since last November, ran routes as part of a practice for starters who did not play in Denver’s final preseason game on Thursday night.
Coach John Fox would not say if he expected to have Welker available for Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Colts.
“He’s still in the [concussion] protocol,” Fox said. “He’s still exercising. I feel good about his progress. We’ll keep you posted.”

Welker was injured when he was drilled by Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger after catching a pass and trying to duck the hit. Swearinger was penalized 15 yards, although the league later declared the hit unworthy of punishment.
Quarterback Peyton Manning, however, was penalized for getting in Swearinger’s face after the next play, receiving the first taunting penalty of his career and later an $8,268 fine.
The Texans in May picked up a fifth-year option that would pay Watt a salary of $6.969 million next season. The new deal, which runs through 2021, reportedly gives Watt an annual salary of $16.6 million — also an NFL record for a defensive player.
Watt has 36.5 sacks in three seasons. He was named 2012 Defensive Player of the Year one year after he was selected with the 11th pick in the draft.
Watt expressed his desire for a new deal during the preseason, although the Texans had no obligation to accommodate him.
The Astros were a franchise-worst 51-111 last year and entered Monday with the second-worst record in the American League at 59-79.
“I recognize that our win-loss record is largely a product of an organizational strategy for which I am responsible,” general manager Jeff Luhnow said in a statement. “Rather, I made this decision because I believe we need a new direction in our clubhouse.”
Added the GM: “What we will seek going forward is a consistent and united message throughout the entire organization. It is essential that as an organization we create an atmosphere at the major league level where our young players can come up and continue to develop and succeed.
“Ultimately, I am responsible for creating that culture, and I will do everything in my power to do so — even when it means making difficult moves like the one we made today.”
Porter, who previously served as third base coach for the Nationals, reportedly had developed a strained relationship with Luhnow.
“During my time in Houston I dedicated myself to do everything I could to help this organization win, in the short term and for the long term,” Porter said in a statement. “I am proud of what we were able to accomplish in Houston with an organization in transition. I’m gratified we were able to bring some excitement to this city as a result of our improvement from 2013 to 2014.”
Tom Lawless was called up from the minors to take over as interim manager.
