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

– The Penguins social media department apologized Thursday for using the “blow up” in a tweet on the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The controversy began when a tweeter from Washington, D.C., tweeted at the Penguins: Who cares about the Pens?

The Penguins responded by suggesting to their 547,000 Twitter followers that they “blow up” the individual’s account with mass tweeting to show how many people do care. That led to an apology for the poor choice of words.

“I mean, really?” Fauria lamented. “Isn’t that kind of just obvious that it’s not what you meant? There’s certain words that you can’t use on certain days now?”

“Said Benz: “When people demand that others apologize, at times don’t they have to apologize for something they meant to do. Am I apologizing for something I didn’t mean to do, and did you really take offense or are you just trying to take offense?”

– A recent study based on Google searches from 2004-14 determined the most popular cocktail in each state. The No. 1 drink in Massachusetts and Rhode Island is the martini. For the rest of the New England states it’s a cosmopolitan.

“Some of the drinks in certain states seem to fit,” Fauria said, although the hosts questioned the New England choices.

– NFL coaches have been using Microsoft Surface tablets on the sidelines this year, but many people are misidentifying them.

Said Merloni: “Everybody in football is calling them iPads, and Microsoft spent [$]400 million for them to call them Microsoft Surface tablets. ‘€¦ Apple’s sitting there saying, ‘This is awesome, we didn’t spend a penny.’ ”

Fauria acknowledged misidentifying the tablets when he served as an analyst for Patriots preseason games.

“We were doing it, too, we’re like, ‘Oh, there’s the iPad,’ ” Fauria recalled. “[The producers] go in our ear and be like, ‘Oh, crud, you guys, it’s the Microsoft Surface.’ Trent Green did it the other day during the Patriots game.”

Reminded by Merloni that Microsoft spent $400 million for the placement, Fauria said: “That’s why Roger Goodell is not getting fired. Another reason why he’s not getting fired.”

The Orioles are a near-lock to win the American League East, but they’ll start the playoffs without slugger Chris Davis, who was suspended 25 games by the league for using amphetamines.

MLB announced the suspension Friday morning, saying Davis was suspended without pay “after testing positive for an amphetamine in violation of Major League Baseball‘s joint drug prevention and treatment program.”

Davis, who is batting just .196 but has 26 home runs and 72 RBIs, released a statement through the players association.

“I apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Orioles organization and especially the fans,” he said. “I made a mistake by taking Adderall. I had permission to use it in the past, but do not have a therapeutic use exemption this year. I accept my punishment and will begin serving my suspension immediately.”

The Orioles have 17 regular-season games remaining, so he would have to sit the first eight games of the postseason.
