All the stories of the day brought to you by Jerry Thornton including tonight's Emmy Awards.
Gerry heard something interesting on Mustard and Johnson over the weekend: Where's the evidence against Roger Clemens? Dino, Gerry and Jerry look at the P.E.D. proof against Clemens.

Here are the highlights from Monday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with John Dennis, Gerry Callahan and guest host Jerry Thornton. To listen to the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

For the second day in a row, an awards show is slated to air on TV Monday, as the 66th annual Emmys will be broadcasted just a day after the MTV Video Music Awards.

“€œI think they need award shows,” Thornton said. “If there’€™s one thing my life lacks, it’€™s there aren’t enough chances for these guys to congratulate themselves.”

“If we don’€™t do an awards show once a week, then the terrorists win,” Callahan remarked.

One of the biggest contenders Monday night will be HBO’€™s “Game of Thrones,”€ which has a staggering 19 nominations, including a Best Support Actor in a Drama Series nomination for Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister.

“€œIt’€™s a show where, I don’€™t know if you guys watch it, but nobody is above being killed,”€ Thornton said. “But the producers of that show are on notice that if this character gets killed off, the whole country is going to look like Ferguson, Missouri. We’€™re all just going to riot and loot and it’€™s going to be horrible.”

Another favorite on Monday night is AMC’€™s “€œBreaking Bad,” which earned seven nominations for its final season, including acting nominations for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn.

“When is it going to stop winning awards?”€ Callahan said. “I feel like 20 years from now, ‘Breaking Bad’ is going to be nominated for an Emmy and it’€™s going to win.”

“It ended at exactly the right time,”€ Thornton said. “It was to TV what Pedro Martinez‘€™s Red Sox career was on. Not too soon, not too late. They didn’t drag it out.”

Another AMC series, “Mad Men,”€ once again will be a big presence Monday, as the advertising period drama has eight nominations.

“œAs someone once said to me, ‘€˜That show was a lot of subtle nuance.’€™ Yeah, too much subtle nuance,”€ Thornton said. “Give me dragons, give me swords, give [Breaking Bad'€™s] Hank [Schrader] getting killed.”

– Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson met with team brass on Sunday night after failing to show up for Friday night’s game against the Giants and having no communication with the team for about 48 hours.

General manager John Idzik said during a conference call prior to Sunday’s meeting that while Patterson had not returned messages from himself and coach Rex Ryan, Patterson’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, let them know earlier Sunday that the player was physically OK, although the reason for his disappearance was not made clear.

“I’d like to talk to him so we could figure out what’s behind it,” Idzik said.

Patterson, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal in April and was expected to start in the team’s depleted secondary if he was able to fight through a variety of leg injuries that slowed him down this summer, was last seen at the pregame meal Friday.

“Obviously, as the game went on, we still had major concerns for his health and where he was, but were unable to locate him,” Ryan said.

Added Idzik: “There really wasn’t any warning that we had of something like this,” Idzik said. “There was nothing to indicate this kind of behavior.”

Broncos receiver Wes Welker suffered a concussion — his third diagnosed concussion in less than a year — when he was hit by Texans safety D.J. Swearinger, and Peyton Manning was not pleased with the play.

The Denver quarterback let Swearinger know right after the play — on which Swearinger was penalized — then Manning drew a flag for taunting after he yelled at the safety following a touchdown pass on the next play.

On Sunday, Texans coach Bill O’Brien came to the defense of his player.

“D.J. was not trying to do any harm,” O’Brien said. “He was trying to make a play, make a tackle. The call was correct. What you continually have to do is show the guys on tape what a proper tackle is. It’s not leading with the head. It’s hitting with your shoulder and hitting basically between the shoulders and the waist and not above the neck area. But last night’s play was a tough one to say, ‘You were really at fault there.’ ”

Swearinger said after the game that he was attempting to make a clean play.

“I led with my shoulder,” Swearinger said. “That’s the only thing I can do. He’s a short guy. I led with my shoulder. The results are the results and that’s all I can do on that play.”

– Algeria’s interior ministry ordered a police investigation after a player died of a head injury after being hit by a rock thrown from his own team’s rooting section after a game Saturday.

Cameroon striker Albert Ebosse, who played for JS Kabylie in the country’s top league, was leaving the field with his teammates after a 2-1 loss to USM Alger at JS Kabylie’s home field in Tizi Ouzou when fans began throwing rocks.

The 24-year-old, who led the league in scoring last season and had scored his team’s lone goal in Saturday’s game, was taken to a hospital right next to the stadium after being struck. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

“We expect exemplary sanctions to be taken against this grave act of violence,” African confederation president Issa Hayatou said in a statement.

The Algerian Football Federation and the pro league both scheduled emergency meetings to address the situation, with federation president Mohamed Raouraoua saying he hoped that “the perpetrators of this unspeakable act are severely punished.”

The Revolution have added U.S. World Cup star Jermaine Jones, the team announced Sunday. The 32-year-old midfielder played every minute for the U.S. at this year’s World Cup and scored a beautiful goal in the team’s 2-2 draw against Portugal.

According to the team, the Chicago Fire also expressed interest in Jones, and both the Revs and Fire had the available salary budget and designated roster spot to accommodate the move. Jones was assigned to the Revs following a blind draw between the two clubs.

“This is a great opportunity for us to add one of the best players in the United States to our club,” Jonathan Kraft said in a press release. “We thought Jermaine was the best player for the U.S. in the World Cup and we are excited to welcome him to New England. Robert and I have always said that any major DP signing would need to make an impact, on and off the field, and we believe the addition of Jermaine will do just that. When we learned that he was interested in signing with MLS, we immediately informed the league of our interest. He is a dynamic player and is certain to have a tremendous impact on our team and in our community. We look forward to his many contributions.”

“I’m very excited to come to MLS and join the Revolution,” Jones said. “New England is an exciting team on the rise, and I believe I can come in and help the team make a push toward MLS Cup. Playing with the U.S. National Team has given me a great connection with the American fans and I’m looking forward to playing in front of them every weekend. I’m ready to get started with the Revs.”
