– The Emmys will air Monday marking the first time the awards show has aired on a Monday in 38 years.

The decision reportedly was made in order to allow NBC to air Sunday Night Football.

“I think we talked about this before, I don’t think it’s possible to have a better year in television than we’ve had this year,” Minihane said.

Minihane listed the names of the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, which includes Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad,” Jon Hamm from “Mad Men” and Matthew McConaughey of “True Detective.”

“It’s hard to imagine any other year producing that kind of talent,” Buckley said.

– V. Stiviano, former assist of Donald Sterling, claimed the former Clippers owner is a homosexual who used her as his “beard” to hide his lifestyle.

“You didn’t think you could go away quietly, right?” Dennis said.

Stiviano claimed to have never slept with Sterling and said she was simply used to take out in public to hide that he “enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress.”

“Now Donald Sterling is gay?” Minihane said.

Said Dennis: “She is such a standup, classy individual isn’t she?”

“I have a feeling about those two kids, I think they’re going to work it out,” Buckley said.

The top stories of the day as recounted by Kirk Minihane.
The guys opened the show by discussing the great support shown by our listeners supporting the Jimmy Fund.

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.

– A Montana man ended up in jail after calling police to claim that a stripper refused to have sex with him after he paid her $350, according to Billings’ KTVQ.com.

William McDaniel, 53, called 911 Saturday night to report the woman from Sagebrush Sam’s Exotic Dance Club in Rocker, Montana. McDaniel, who has a history of arrests for DUI and drug possession, was taken in by Butte-Silver Bow police for soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor.

“If you’re in Rocker, Montana, wouldn’t you think something like this would be OK?” Callahan wondered. “It’s kind of a lawless [area]. … I’ll bet you people there, they think this is OK. They’re real libertarians out there, not phony ones like [Minihane].”

– The unarmed black teenager who was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, had punched the officer and shattered his eye socket prior to being shot, according to a report out of the St. Louis suburb.

Officer Darren Wilson suffered an orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket, Gateway Pundit reported.

“He crushed the guy’s face,” Callahan said. “Does this mean we call off all the looting?”

Said Dennis: “It’s not fair to bring this up, Gerry, at this time. It’s character assassination.”

Continued Callahan: “You’re 300 pounds and you crush someone’s face, and they are, I assume, on the defensive here, I think the officer was probably fearing for his life. Wouldn’t you fear for your life when a 300-pounder crushed your face? So, do we call off the looting? No more looting?”

– The Maine man who lived in the woods for 27 years until being arrested for stealing from area homes and camps is readjusting to life in civilization.

Christopher Knight, known as the “North Pond Hermit,” talked about his situation with GQ as he goes through a special court program that provides treatment and counseling following a stint in jail.

“Some people want me to be this warm and fuzzy person,” the 48-year-old told the magazine. “All filled with friendly hermit wisdom. Just spouting off fortune-cookie lines from my hermit home.”

Said Callahan: “If you want to be a hermit living in the woods, wouldn’t you choose like, Virginia? I mean, Maine? Maine in your house in the winter is cold.”

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?”

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.”
