We tackle four topics, all spawned by Rory McIroy's futures bet he placed on his own son 10 years ago.

In Monday’€™s Three For All on Middays with MFB, Tim Benz, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria discussed HBO’€™s “True Detective,” a man’€™s poor way of informing his wife of his frustrations in bed and one 5-year-old boy’€™s special birthday wish. To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Over the weekend, Benz purchased the DVD box set of the critically-acclaimed HBO show “True Detective,” which had he not seen before.

“€œI never really watch shows, I’€™m not a TV show watcher,” Benz said. “Unless it’€™s ‘Family Guy’ or ‘South Park,’ that’€™s pretty much what I’€™m limited to.”

Benz finished the entire eight-episode first season over a two-day stretch, and was overall torn on the final product.

“€œI crammed. … I stayed up really late on Saturday night, I watched the first five episodes, which I really enjoyed, and the last three I thought were crap,” Benz said.

When asked to give the show a grade, Benz gave it a B/B-minus.

“By TV standards, it’€™s an A,”Benz said. “€œBut I have pretty low standards when it comes to looking at TV.”

“I haven’€™t seen it, and now, I don’€™t think I’€™m going to go see it, unless I’€™m on vacation, downtime, don’€™t feel like reading some crap book. … I might try it out,” Fauria said.

– A man didn’t take the best route when it came to voicing his frustration about his wife turning down his sexual advances. The man eventually sent his wife a spreadsheet that listed all the times over the past two months that he attempted to have sex with her and the excuses that she gave to avoid it.

After getting the spreadsheet via email, the woman posted the document on the social networking site Reddit and it has since gone viral.

“He was obviously trying really hard,”€ Fauria said, adding: “He thought he’€™s make an Excel spreadsheet, which is stupid, because you just made a bad problem worse. Now she’€™s really not going to have sex with you.”

– Merloni brought up the story of Foxboro native Danny Nickerson, a 5-year-old boy who was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer last fall.

Nickerson, who will turn 6 on July 25, gets a huge boost when he receives cards with his name on it in the mail, and he has already received over 40 letters leading up to his birthday.

Merloni gave out Nickerson’€™s address out during the segment and urged everyone to send a card his way for his birthday.

“Let’€™s get some birthday cards out to little Danny and let him just enjoy  seeing all the cards in there, seeing his name on all of it,” Merloni said.

Cards can be sent to Danny Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA 02035.
