With the Red Sox getting ready to announce the FA acquisitions of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, we were joined by WEEI.com's Rob Bradford to discuss everything that led the Red Sox to this point, and of course, the possibility of still signing FA Pitcher Jon Lester.
Tim and Christian start the show quickly talking about the events in Ferguson, Missouri last night, then they get into Steve Smith Sr. and his comments after MNF. Mostly though, Tim wanted to see how Christian and the callers felt about the fact that NFL decided NOT to fine Lions C Dominic Raiola for his cheap attempt to cut a member of the Patriots DL as his team was taking a knee at the end of the game.
The top stories of the day as recounted by Kirk Minihane.
The guys discussed the Riots in Ferguson.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™€™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.

— Foxwoods has cancelled a future Bill Cosby show in wake of the sexual assault allegations against him, but there are shows still scheduled to go on in Boston and Worcester in February.

“If I already had my tickets, and I don’t care if I paid $200 for them, I wouldn’t go see this pig,” Dennis said.

“Doesn’t he have a right to perform, though?” Callahan asked.

“Yeah, he does, and I have a right not to go watch him,” Dennis replied.

“Exactly. Shouldn’t the market place determine who goes to see him,” Callahan responded.

— On a Fox News live broadcast from Ferguson, MO, shots were fired while Steve Harrigan was reporting on Monday night, following the ruling of there being no indictment for Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Harrigan kept yelling at his crew to move back.

“So the commissioner, or the chief said no shots were fired by his guys, not one. Who is shooting, and what are they shooting at?” Callahan asked.

“They are just shooting into the air. It’s a Palestinian thing. Haven’t you seen that in Palestine,” Dennis replied.

There were a number of buildings set on fire in the town following the ruling, some still burning into the morning.

“I guarantee you there would not have been 25 fires lighted during the daylight hours,” said Dennis. “They are much more effective at night, right? That’s like bon-fires at pep rallies.”

“You’d never light a fire at 9 a.m.,” Callahan replied.

— Jennifer Gable, 32, a transgender women of Twin Halls, Idaho, died unexpectedly last week. Friends of Gable were horrified to see her dressed as a man with short hair and a suit at the open-casket funeral. Jennifer was born a boy named Geoffrey

The online obituary made no mention of Jennifer, and the photo that was used appears to be of Geoffrey when he was a teenager.

“Do you blame the parents?” Callahan asked. “It must be a tough time anyway.”

“It’s not their choice,” Dennis replied.

“Yes, I do,” countered Minihane. “It’s someone who chose to live her life that way.”
