We recap the summer's biggest sports stories leading into Labor Day Weekend.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– Greg Amsinger of the MLB Network made an impressive prediction Wednesday night, calling Buster Posey‘s walkoff home run that gave the Giants a 4-2 victory over the Rockies.

“Not only does he call what’s going to happen with Buster Posey at the plate, but he’s also going to call what the play-by-play guy is going to call,” Benz explained.

“It was the next pitch ‘€¦ It was literally like seconds,” Merloni marveled.

– Merloni said he recently typed a text message to his wife but forgot to hit “send,” making the message moot.

“Do you guys ever do that?” Merloni asked. “I find myself doing that like all the time. I answer the text and once I’m done typing it, boom, I’m done. And then I go back like two hours later and I realize I never his send, that it’s still sitting there. Am I the only one who does that?”

Said Benz: “Invariably it’s the wife, and invariably it’s something in her world that’s important.”

Added Fauria: “That happened to me this morning. This very morning.”

– Fauria called attention to the fact that Lifetime network’s behind-the-scenes look at “Saved By the Bell” is set to air Monday night.

“All the hookups, all the fights, all the jockeying for position on camera,” Fauria said.

Fauria noted that the show will air repeatedly on Monday night: “In case you miss it, you have lots of opportunities to watch it.”

Said Merloni: “Make sure you text me. Hit send.”

Buck, Fred and Jerry Thornton opened the show by discussing the start of Jimmy Garappolo's career in New England.

Here are the highlights from Friday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with guest hosts Steve Buckley, Jerry Thornton and Fred Smerlas. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Comedian Joan Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City on Thursday after going into cardiac arrest while having surgery on her vocal chords at a nearby clinic, according to reports.

Rivers, 81, has been hosting a show on E! and continuing to perform stand-up comedy.

“She is 81 years old,” Thornton said. “Her face is 12, apparently.”

Added Thornton: “You know who’s really going to suffer out of this is [Rivers' daughter] Melissa, because what skill does she bring to the table? Melissa is literally going to have to climb into the hospital bed and die with her, because she’ll have no life.”

– USC running back Anthony Brown, who quit the team last week, accused coach Steve Sarkisian of being a racist, an accusation Sarkisian strongly denied. Brown said Sarkisian swore at him repeatedly in a meeting.

Thornton, who admits to being “a Notre Dame suck-up and thus “a big hater of USC,” nonetheless questioned if athletes nowadays are too soft.

“Do you get the feeling that this is the manifestation of that participation trophy generation — that like, nobody’s been talked to in a negative way before? No one’s ever been yelled at: ‘Shut up, make your bed and get on the school bus.’ ”

Smerlas recalled a number on times coaches swore at him, and he said he sees a difference in how coaches interact now. “College sports and high school sports is totally — I call them the pastry and Pop-Tart kids out in the suburbs,” he said.

– A youth dance team coach in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, was fired after an annual “lock-in” at the school gym in which she tries to scare younger members. Madi Salisbury shut off the lights with the intention of having a group of people scare the kids, something she compared to a haunted house. People jumped out and shot off pop guns, and parents complained that their girls were upset because they did not know if the guns were fake.

“It’s not like they hit them with a board, or threw ice water,” Smerlas said.

Said Thornton: “I’m going to guess that grief counselors are available for the girls on the Cannon Falls, Minnesota, dance team.”
