Robert Kennedy Jr. ties the knot with Cheryl Hines in Hyannis Port

Robert Kennedy Jr. married actress Cheryl Hines Saturday at the the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port. It is the second marriage for Hines and third for Kennedy.

Despite the happy occasion for both, Kennedy has had a fair share of baggage surrounding his previous struggles with infidelity. A story in the New York Post indicated that the environmental lawyer kept a list of 43 suspected mistresses under the letter ‘G’ for “goomah” on his phone. “Goomah” is slang in Italian for a mistress.

“I’ll ask you right now, like we were doing at your wedding: Over/under how long this lasts, this Robert Kennedy/Cheryl Hines wedding. … Three and a half years?’ Minihane asked Dennis.

“Oh no, under,” Dennis responded. “But doesn’t she go into this with her eyes wide open? … So she thinks she’s the one who’s going to tame him.”

Hines is perhaps best known for her role as Cheryl Davis, the wife of Larry David on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“Watching the show, I never thought she would marry a Kennedy,” Bradford said.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” earns $94 million at the box office

It was a strong debut for Marvel’s newest film, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which earned $94 million to top the box office. It was the highest opening for a film released in August, shattering the previous mark of $69.2 million set by “The Bourne Ultimatum” in 2007.

Despite the positive reception surrounding the film, Bradford said that he struggled to stay focused when he saw it at the movie theater.

“I’ve gone to a lot of movies, as you know,” Bradford said. “I don’t remember having to get up in the middle of a movie and walk out and just walk around, because I was falling asleep. … I don’t think it was so much about the movie, I was just tired. It just wasn’t for me. It was a lot of CGI.”

Scarlett Johansson‘s newest film, “Lucy,” finished second at the box office with $18.3 million.

“I was about to say, No. 2 this weekend was ‘Lucy,’ and I was driving around, and I heard John Dennis say he saw ‘Lucy,’ I almost drove into the Kennebec River. I was so surprised,” Minihane said.

“I really wanted to go see ‘Boyhood,’ but Kathy didn’t want to see ‘Boyhood,’ ” Dennis responded.

“œYou really wanted to see it? It’s great,” Minihane said.

“I may go by myself, which I never do,” Dennis added.

Woman sentenced to 180 days in jail after getting caught having sex in public in retirement-community gazebo

A 68-year-old resident of a retirement community in Central Florida is trading in her comfy apartment for a jail cell for the near future.

Margaret “Peggy” Klemm was sentenced to 180 days in a Sumter County jail on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct after getting caught having sex in a gazebo in the center of the community area.

“This is what’s going on with the elderly down in Florida,” Minihane said.

“Any community that has a gazebo is just asking for something like that to happen,” Bradford quipped.

“I think she should be congratulated, don’t you?” Dennis said.

On Friday’s edition of Three for All on Middays with MFB, Lou MerloniChristian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed a play from an Arena Football League game that Benz called, the newest NFL technology and a man who called 911 to try to get out of a speeding ticket. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

On ESPN’s top 10 worst sports moments this week, one of the plays that appeared was from a Pittsburgh Power AFL game against the Philadelphia Soul.

“Two-point conversion, Philadelphia is going for it, and they botch it,” Benz said. “So the Philadelphia team blows it on the two-point conversion and the ball rattles around 50 yards down the field the other way for a Pittsburgh Power two-point conversion of their own.”

The guys then played the audio of Benz’s call of the play.

“I like it,” Fauria said.

ESPN, however, did not play the audio on its segment.

“Courtesy of Tim Benz, they couldn’t go there?” Merloni said.

Said Benz: “That sucks. Now I’m pissed.”

– The NFL announced Thursday that it is installing a real-time tracking system by Zebra Technologies in 17 stadiums this season.

Players will have quarter-sized chips on their uniforms that will sync with radio receivers in the stadium to provide statistical information such as a player’s position, speed, acceleration and total distance run. 

“So what it’s going to do is for 15 Thursday night games, they’re going to be able to track the distance and speed to enhance the fan experience,” Fauria said. “Not every stadium is going to have this, but every team will be part of this process.

“So if I catch a ball and start running, automatically you’re going to know where I caught the ball, how many yards I ran after I caught it. It even goes so far to say how many yards back an offensive lineman pushes a defensive lineman.”

Gillette Stadium is one of the fields that will have this technology this season.

Fauria said he hates it because there would be too many stats thrown on screen at once.

“I don’t want lines all over the screen either, but if you use that at some point during the game and just sort of post the information you get in the background, that’s a different story,” Merloni said.

– Florida police said a man made a phony 911 call to report a possible murder in progress as he was being pulled over in an attempt to get out of a traffic ticket.

Every officer available went out to respond to the situation except for the officer giving him the ticket. The man who made the call, named Julius Lupowitz, had his name read aloud by the dispatcher over the police radio. The officer writing the ticket realized what was happening and caught him.

“Rather than getting a $200 traffic ticket, he’s now facing a felony charge with a five-year maximum prison term,” Merloni said.

Said Benz: “We couldn’t have found out he had meth or something in the car?”

City Council President pushing for South Boston library to be named after William Bulger

City Council President Bill Linehan reportedly has submitted paperwork to the Boston Public Facilities Commission to rename the South Boston branch of the Boston Public Library after former Senate President William Bulger.

Linehan said in a statement that Bulger’s “commitment to service” is “well documented and heralded.”

Bulger, who served South Boston in the State House before moving onto the Senate, is the brother of infamous South Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger.

“Real life heroes, they’re out there,” Callahan said. “Why would we ever name a school, a branch, a library for a guy who got elected?”

Said Meterparel: “Don’t forget that Bulger was the trustee of the library in South Boston for 25 years.”

“What does that mean?” Dennis asked.

Meterparel responded: “It means he goes to a meeting once a year.”

Former President Bill Clinton says he passed on chance to kill Osama bin Laden

An Australian media outlet revealed that former President Bill Clinton told a group of Australian businessmen just hours before the 9/11 terrorist attacks that he passed on a chance to kill Osama bin Laden.

Clinton explained at a conference in Melbourne just 10 hours before the first plane hit the World Trade Center that when he was President, he opted out of killing bin Laden because the necessary operation would have also killed hundreds of innocent civilians in Afghanistan.

“That’s an insult to Navy Seals,” Callahan said.

“Does that qualify as narcissistic?” Dennis asked.

Said Callahan: “He is the definition of narcissism.”

New book claims Vice President Joe Biden swims naked, upsets female Secret Service agents

Author Robert Kessler‘s new book, “The First Family Detail,” claims that Vice President Joe Biden upsets female Secret Service agents with his habit of swimming naked.

“He swims naked in front of female Secret Service agents?” Callahan asked.

Said Meterparel: “Yes. It’s highly offensive to them.”

Tara Reid says sharknados could actually happen

“Sharknado 2: The Second One” star Tara Reid said in an interview with GQ that a sharknado could actually occur.

“You know, it actually can happen,’€ Redi told GQ. “I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually.”

“I’m not editing this,” Meterparel said as he was reading the quote.

Said Callahan: “She doesn’t sounds dumb, just unsophisticated.”
