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

– During Sunday’s edition of CSNNE’s “The Baseball Show,” filmed on the deck of Jerry Remy‘s restaurant around the corner from Fenway Park, a TV light fell and nearly hit Merloni.

“We were down at Jerry Remy’s, it’s always great being down there,” Merloni said. “And then all of a sudden, mid-sentence, I think while Bob Neumeier was speaking — we get the lights out there because we go until 8 o’clock — all of a sudden it just fell right on the set. It just fell right in front of my lap, while on TV, live TV. ‘€¦ This light fixture just came smashing down right in front of me, Neumy and Steve Buckley. We didn’t know where to go with it. It was kind of freaky. But the show went on. We didn’t skip a beat. We just kept talking like it didn’t happen.”

Added Merloni: “It’s always fun. There’s never a dull moment on ‘The Baseball Show’ right there on Comcast. Smashes right in front of me, right in my lap.”

– A 24-year-old man in Portsmouth, England, was arrested and fined after throwing himself backwards and making ghost noises in a cemetery while mourners visiting graves stood nearby. Anthony Stallard also allegedly kicked a soccer ball at graves with a friend, although charges of causing damage to gravestones were dismissed after witnesses did not show up to court.

“This is flat-out a knucklehead,” Fauria said, adding: “As this family was mourning the death of a loved one, this guy acts like the scene from ‘Ghost.’ ‘€¦ He’s basically mocking the mourners.”

In his defense, Stallard’s lawyer said (via the Daily Mail), “He has accepted that his behavior, if it had been outside of a cemetery, would not have been inappropriate. But inside a cemetery, while people are grieving for their loved ones, it might be.”

Said Fauria: “No crap. Are you kidding me? You have to release a statement saying that?”

– WNBA players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson announced late last week that they are engaged. Griner, a 6-foot-8 center, plays for the Phoenix Mercury, while Johnson is a 6-foot-3 forward for the Tulsa Shock.

Said Benz: “I’m fine with gay marriage. I’m thinking of it from the standpoint of playing against your spouse, playing against your significant other. ‘€¦ I don’t care about the gender/sexuality of it whatsoever. It’s just, can you imagine an athletic competition where you would have to foul your spouse, try to strip the ball, block the ball, I don’t know, drive the lane and go around your spouse like Cory Johnson is going to have do. There’s a complete conflict of interest here, isn’t there?”

The hosts debated what the players will do when competing against each other and how much information they would share about each other’s weakness or injuries with their teammates.

“The goal is to win, right?” Fauria said. “What are you going to do?”

“Weak-ass layup, Brittney Griner doesn’t rotate over and swat it into the 32nd row if she can because it’s her spouse?” Benz wondered. “There’s something weird about this, isn’t there?”

Said Fauria: “I guess you really have to make a quick decision. Do you want to be happy when you go home? It’s going to be taken out on somebody. ‘€¦ It can be a delicate situation. There might be a lot of apologies, a lot of foot rubs. Who knows what else?”

Hasselbeck joins Dennis and Callahan to breakdown all the preseason action.
All the day's stories brought to you by Kirk Minihane. Today's headlines include the situation in Missouri and a tragic accident on Nantucket.
Dino is back from vacation and he catches up on all the stories he missed while he was away.

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

– The situation continues to get worse in Ferguson, Missouri, more than a week after African-American teen Michael Brown was shot to death by a white Ferguson police officer.

“œWhat’€™s going on in Ferguson?” Callahan asked.

Joked Dennis: “A Market Basket is closing down in Ferguson, I think.”

In an effort to quell the rioting and unrest in the St. Louis suburb, Missouri governor Jay Nixon ordered in the National Guard on Sunday night. Protestors have shot at and thrown Molotov cocktails at police during the many riots and standoffs in the aftermath of Brown’€™s death.

Said Dennis: “I threw a snowball at a cop car once, that’€™s as bad as I got.”

– An experienced€ skydiver died Sunday morning in an accident at the Skydive Pepperell Center.

Daniel Pelrine, 37, an ironworker from Mattapan, was pronounced dead at the scene by responding paramedics.

“€œWhy don’€™t people listen to me? That’€™s suicide, going there to skydive,” said Callahan, who recounted a bad experience he had with the company.

“€œIt is something that’€™s never had an ounce of appeal to me. … What’€™s the upside?,”€ Minihane asked.

“€œThe upside is that it’€™s exciting,” Callahan responded.

“What’€™s the downside?”€ Minihane added.

“You can die,”€ Callahan said.

– In an accident over the weekend, 27-year-old Corey Griffin died Saturday after diving off of a building and into the water at Straight Wharf in Nantucket.

Griffin, who was in Nantucket to raise money for ALS awareness and his close friend Pete Frates‘€™ fund, had raised $100,000 to fight the disease before his tragic death.

“€œHe was a fun-loving guy whose heart was in the right place,”€ Callahan said.

Callahan continued: “œI’ve done much dumber things than that, and he sounds like an awesome guy and it’€™s so friggin’ sad.”

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

– Atlanta sportscaster Zach Klein made 22 references to the film and TV career of the late Robin Williams during a newscast on the local WSB-TV network this week.

Fauria played a portion of the segment on the air and challenged Merloni and Benz to pick out as many references as they could find.

Both Merloni and Benz guessed 20, which Fauria confirmed was correct.

“That was actually a little easier than I thought it would be,” Fauria said after the clip ended.

“He set it up a little easy when he emphasized the word,” Fauria added. “I didn’t think he was going to do it as easy as it was. You’ve got to slide it in there.”

Said Merloni: “It was creative.”

“The inflection sort of gave it away, Christian,” Benz said.

Said Fauria: “I’m sorry, it was an easy test. There’s no pass-fail. It’s really just show up and you get the grade.”
