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?”
