The guys opened the show discussing the latest allegations against Adrian Peterson.

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Kira Kazantsev, an aspiring lawyer from New York, was crowned Miss America on Sunday night. The third consecutive champion from New York wowed the crowd with her rendition of Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy.” During the song, Kazantsev hit a plastic red cup, similar to what Anna Kendrick did during the song “Cups” in the movie “Pitch Perfect.”

“She’s like a Miss America 7,” Minihane said of Kazantsev’s looks.

Minihane showed the hosts a picture of the champion after he described what Kazantsev looked like.

Replied Callahan: “She looks a little weird in that picture.”

Dennis sarcastically said he felt a former NBA commissioner had a hand in Kazantsev’s win. Former NBA commissioner David Stern was the target of conspiracy rumors after many speculated he manipulated the 1985 NBA draft lottery so that the Knicks could get the first pick, allowing them to select Patrick Ewing.

“I think David Stern somehow arranged this, the New York thing again,” Dennis said.

– “Orange is the New Black” writer Lauren Morelli recently divorced her husband after coming out as a lesbian while writing for the show. Morelli now is dating actress Samira Wiley, who plays one of the characters on the show.

Joked Callahan of Morelli’s change: “It’s just a phase.”

– James Dolan, owner of the Knicks and Rangers, had his country band JD & The Straight Shot open for The Eagles this weekend during a concert at Madison Square Garden. Dolan’s band performed a song about the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida from 2012.

Said Minihane with a touch of sarcasm: “I think the fact that he owns the Knicks and Rangers played a factor in him being able to open for The Eagles.”

Minihane played a clip from the Martin song for the other hosts.

Replied Dennis: “[The song] wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.”

Jenny Dell reintroduced herself to the New England sports television-viewing audience Sunday.

Serving as the sideline reporter for CBS’ broadcast of the Patriots tilt in Minnesota against the Vikings — joining the broadcast team that included Dan Fouts and Ian Eagle — Dell stumbled a bit during her initial report at the game’s outset, but appeared to handle her other spots without incident.

Dell only made one other appearance in the first half, interviewing Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer just before halftime.

As noted by Obnoxious Boston Fan, she did manage to escape serious injury when almost trampled by Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Fouts: “She’s gotta square up and not shy away from the big guy.”

Dell: “Next time I’ll stay there. We’re lucky we have a great crew down here to protect me.”

Here are the highlights from Friday’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.

– The Penguins social media department apologized Thursday for using the “blow up” in a tweet on the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The controversy began when a tweeter from Washington, D.C., tweeted at the Penguins: Who cares about the Pens?

The Penguins responded by suggesting to their 547,000 Twitter followers that they “blow up” the individual’s account with mass tweeting to show how many people do care. That led to an apology for the poor choice of words.

“I mean, really?” Fauria lamented. “Isn’t that kind of just obvious that it’s not what you meant? There’s certain words that you can’t use on certain days now?”

“Said Benz: “When people demand that others apologize, at times don’t they have to apologize for something they meant to do. Am I apologizing for something I didn’t mean to do, and did you really take offense or are you just trying to take offense?”

– A recent study based on Google searches from 2004-14 determined the most popular cocktail in each state. The No. 1 drink in Massachusetts and Rhode Island is the martini. For the rest of the New England states it’s a cosmopolitan.

“Some of the drinks in certain states seem to fit,” Fauria said, although the hosts questioned the New England choices.

– NFL coaches have been using Microsoft Surface tablets on the sidelines this year, but many people are misidentifying them.

Said Merloni: “Everybody in football is calling them iPads, and Microsoft spent [$]400 million for them to call them Microsoft Surface tablets. ‘€¦ Apple’s sitting there saying, ‘This is awesome, we didn’t spend a penny.’ ”

Fauria acknowledged misidentifying the tablets when he served as an analyst for Patriots preseason games.

“We were doing it, too, we’re like, ‘Oh, there’s the iPad,’ ” Fauria recalled. “[The producers] go in our ear and be like, ‘Oh, crud, you guys, it’s the Microsoft Surface.’ Trent Green did it the other day during the Patriots game.”

Reminded by Merloni that Microsoft spent $400 million for the placement, Fauria said: “That’s why Roger Goodell is not getting fired. Another reason why he’s not getting fired.”
