“How did she get a spot on a CBS show? I don’t know how that happened,” Minihane deadpanned.
Said Callahan, “She just must be supremely gifted.”
– A white Ohio woman is suing an Illinois sperm bank, claiming she was inseminated with sperm from a black donor by mistake. Jennifer Cramblett, 36, is raising her mixed-race child with her lesbian partner and says the 2-year-old faces multiple challenges in the all-white community of Uniontown, Ohio.
“This is 2014, give me a break,” said an unsympathetic Minihane.
Minihane recounted his own experience with looking at sperm-donor candidates, although he and his wife did not go through with that option.
“We had a certain age, we had a certain education, the color, obviously, I would have preferred a honky but I would have taken anyone,” Minihane said. “I didn’t really care.”

– A high school football player from New Yorkdied Wednesday night, a few hours after suffering a head injury in a game, becoming the third prep player to die in the past week.
According to reports out of Long Island, Tom Cutinella, a guard/linebacker for Shoreham-Wading River High School, was injured after a collision during the third quarter of his team’s game against John Glenn High School. He underwent surgery and was in the intensive-care unit when he died.
“It was a big hit,” coach Matt Millheiser told a reporter shortly after his player was taken from the field by ambulance.
Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
Said Shoreham-Wading River school board member Jack Costas: “We’re a small community and we’re all devastated. It’s always tragic when someone so young and so full of life has their life ended. It’s going to be a very, very difficult road ahead from this.”
Added Costas: “I think that, obviously, we’re expecting to get a full report, find out exactly what happened and do an audit of our equipment and, if there is some way to ensure safer play, then, obviously we’re going to have to make some adjustments.”
On Sunday in Troy, Alabama, Charles Henderson High School cornerback Demario Harris Jr. died two days after collapsing on the field following a tackle. His coach said a neurologist told him Harris suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm, a pre-existing problem that likely was not related to football, but the player’s father disputed that assertion.
“My family and me are dealing with a rough situation and we really appreciate everyone’s well wishes and prayers,” Demario Harris Sr. wrote on Facebook. “And contrary to various media reports, my son had a brain hemorrhage, not an aneurysm, that was caused by a hit he took during Friday’s game. He may have had a preexisting condition, but there is no way to tell now.”
Over the weekend, linebacker Isaiah Langston of Rolesville (N.C.) High School died after collapsing during pregame warmups Friday. The player’s brother said Langston’s death appeared to be related to a blood clot in the brain.
The outspoken receiver called into a Charlotte radio station and said the Panthers “stabbed me in the back” after he set franchise records for catches, receiving yards and touchdowns.
“Yes, it was personal with me and [general manager] Dave Gettleman,” Smith told WFNZ-AM. “Obviously I did something that got under his skin. And you know what? I’m not a perfect person. There are people I run into that get under my skin.”
Smith, who had seven catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens’ 38-10 victory Sunday, said the GM told his agent the player was a “nuisance” and indicated he had planned to trade him.
“It hurts me because the way I play it is basically a justification to try to show people, ‘Well, we had to get rid of him because he was a nuisance,’ ” Smith said.
– One day after University of Michigan students marched to the school president’s campus residence to call for football coach Brady Hoke’s firing, the coach accepted some responsibility for the miscommunication that led to him reinserting quarterback Shane Morris into Saturday’s game after the QB appeared to have a concussion.
“From the start, when you’re a leader, you always have to take responsibility,” Hoke said Wednesday. “I take responsibility for our student-athletes, and I would take it for their health and welfare. But I’ll also make it clear I don’t make decisions on the health and welfare, and that shouldn’t be the coach’s decision.”
Hoke did not explain why athletic director Dave Brandon said Tuesday that Morris only had a “probable, mild concussion,” downplaying the severity of the injury with terms many medical personnel say should not be used. Hoke, meanwhile, said before Brandon’s comment that Morris had not been diagnosed with a concussion.
Brandon, who has come under fire as well, said there will be more medical personnel on hand going forward and the school will work on improving its sideline communication.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “There’s no magic play, there’s no magic scheme. It’s us as players playing a lot better than we’re playing. This hasn’t been an isolated incident. I don’t think offensively we’ve played well all year. I don’t think we’ve played well for a long time. We’ve got to figure out the reasons why we’re not playing as well as we’re capable and try to improve them.” — Tom Brady, during his weekly appearance on Dennis & Callahan, discussing the Patriots’ struggles on offense this season
