– Multiple reports indicate former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family were involved in a drunken fight at a house party in Anchorage. Palin and her husband, Todd, were invited to a champion snowmobile racer’s birthday party and took their kids along.
A brawl ensued after the family showed up, and daughter Bristol, of “Dancing with the Stars” fame, was at the middle of it, allegedly throwing multiple punches.
Said Dennis: “It was like an intrasquad scrimmage.”
Callahan wondered about the weather in Alaska because of the snowmobiler’s party. “Is there snow there now?” he asked.
Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauriaand Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
– During WEEI’s radio broadcast of Wednesday’s Red Sox-Orioles broadcast, Merloni, serving as analyst alongside Joe Castiglione, was supposed to drop some U2 references after being challenged by his co-hosts earlier in the day. Merloni initially forgot, but in the ninth inning he was reminded and dropped a couple of references to the band’s songs, such as saying the Red Sox “still haven’t found that they’re looking for” when referring to the closer situation.
“Too bad you didn’t have a really tall guy named Joshua: ‘Man, that guy’s a tree in the left-handed batter’s box,’ ” Benz said.
“He didn’t want to go there. Mike was trying, it was like internally he was trying to talk himself out of just crossing that bridge and being like, ‘I hate you, I want to eat your children, I want to bite your ear off,’ ” Fauria said.
Said Merloni: “He was kind of like, ‘I’m in a good place right now, but you’re bringing me back, man, and this ain’t good for you. That guy, any idea how close he was to death? Tyson was close to being where he was like 10 years ago right there.”
– During Thursday morning’s Dennis & Callahan show, Kirk Minihane voiced his displeasure with how his co-hosts were running the show, calling them “losers” while Gerry Callahan encouraged him to continue his rant.

– A judge in South Africa ruled that Oscar Pistorius did not intentionally kill his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, when he shot her to death in their home last year. Pistorius said he thought Steenkamp was a burglar when he shot her repeatedly through a bathroom door.
“It just defies logic,” Dennis said.
Said Callahan: “You have a gun, you’re armed through the teeth, and you’re afraid that they’ll see you so you shoot through the door. Have you ever heard of such a thing?”
Steenkamp was a popular model in South Africa who was set to appear on a reality TV show at the time of her death.
“I don’t know South African law, but are there any extra charges added because she’s so friggin’ hot?” Callahan asked.
Said Minihane: “Yes, there’s the ‘so friggin’ hot’ charge, not often used in South Africa, but it’s happened occasionally.”
Minihane noted Pistorius already has a new girlfriend.
“She’s not nearly as hot,” Callahan said. “His girlfriend’s kind of homely.”
Said Minihane: “When you kill your ex-girlfriend, you go from a 10 to like a 6.”
