The guys opened the show discussing the latest on Ray Rice.

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.

– A judge in South Africa ruled that Oscar Pistorius did not intentionally kill his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, when he shot her to death in their home last year. Pistorius said he thought Steenkamp was a burglar when he shot her repeatedly through a bathroom door.

“It just defies logic,” Dennis said.

Said Callahan: “You have a gun, you’re armed through the teeth, and you’re afraid that they’ll see you so you shoot through the door. Have you ever heard of such a thing?”

Steenkamp was a popular model in South Africa who was set to appear on a reality TV show at the time of her death.

“I don’t know South African law, but are there any extra charges added because she’s so friggin’ hot?” Callahan asked.

Said Minihane: “Yes, there’s the ‘so friggin’ hot’ charge, not often used in South Africa, but it’s happened occasionally.”

Minihane noted Pistorius already has a new girlfriend.

“She’s not nearly as hot,” Callahan said. “His girlfriend’s kind of homely.”

Said Minihane: “When you kill your ex-girlfriend, you go from a 10 to like a 6.”

– Former boxer Mike Tyson, in Toronto to promote his one-man stage show, responded angrily when a talk-show host brought up the fact that he’s a convicted rapist. Tyson unleashed a series of expletives on live TV — including calling CP24 host Nathan Downer a “rat piece of [expletive]” — before Downer ended the interview.

With the Ray Rice situation making headlines, it’s been noted that Tyson is being welcomed to cities such as Toronto despite his history of domestic violence.

“We had him on and we yukked it up with him. So, we’re as guilty as anyone else, right?” Minihane said. “We call people frauds; we’re total frauds on this.”

This led to a discussion of actors and athletes who are celebrated despite them having a domestic violence incident in their past.

“If Tyson’s caught on video doing one of these things, it’s all different,” Minihane said. “The only reason Rice is different is because he got caught.”

– Morgan Freeman reportedly will play an iconic civil rights lawyer in “Ted 2,” which is being filmed in Boston.

Rumors have it that Ted, a talking teddy bear, will get married in the sequel to the popular 2012 movie that stars Boston native Mark Wahlberg.

“Wahlberg’s career fascinates me,” Minihane said, noting the variety of roles he plays and movies he’s in.

“The thing I like about him is he still seems like just a meathead from Boston,” Callahan said.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and guest host Rob Bradford. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley won the primary Tuesday with 42 percent of the vote and will face off against Republican Charlie Baker in November. Minihane wasn’t afraid to say who he’d be pulling for in this year’s election.

“I’m going to tell you right now, I’m not going to tell you who to vote for. I would just say this: Vote Baker, vote Baker once, vote Baker twice, vote Baker often,” he said.

Dennis said he’d offer his media training assistance to Coakley or Baker, whom he said could be more polished.

Said Dennis: “Charlie, call me. I can help you win this thing. Charlie does need some help, by the way.”

The hosts ran a clip of Coakley’s victory speech, when she saluted the workers of Market Basket, whose strike dominated the news last month. Dennis said that her mention of the supermarket has swayed his opinion.

“Anybody who mentions Market Basket — off my list.”

– Carlo Dellaverson, an NBC online news producer, made a secret Valentine’s Day sex tape with his unknowing girlfriend and posted it online. On Tuesday he was charged with disseminating unlawful surveillance and harassment

When Dennis saw Dellaverson’s picture, Dennis with some amazement said he thought Dellaverson had a striking resemblance to a certain NFL commissioner.

“He looks like Roger Goodell. … He looks like a cross between Roger Goodell and Peyton Manning,” Dennis said.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’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.

– Fauria recounted passing the Apple store in New York City and seeing people camping out in line to get the new iPhone 6.

“There’s some people in line who have been waiting up to 15 days for this phone,” Fauria said, adding: “Is there anything on this earth that you would in line for that long? Can you think of anything that you would say, ‘OK, listen, this is going to be so worth it’?”

Said Benz: “Maybe when Tool releases its new album, Christian, I’ll wait outside the record store for 15, 16 days.”

– Former NESN Red Sox reporter Jenny Dell will be return to New England television screens Sunday when she serves as sideline reporter for the Patriots-Vikings game on CBS.

“I thought she looked great on the sidelines in Game 1, when she did the Steelers’ game against the Browns,” Benz said. “She interviewed Ben Roethlisberger at the end of the game in some sort of red outfit, like a red dress — not too revealing, you didn’t see any plunging neckline or anything like that. We’ll see about this week. But it is a Patriots game for Jenny Dell, so look forward to that.”

Said Fauria: “You know it’s bad when we’re actually discussing the sideline reporter for a Patriots game.”

– Infielder Guilder Rodriguez was called up the major leagues this week after 13 years in the minors. The Rangers decided to reward the popular Rodriguez, who had spent more time in the minors without getting called up than any current player.

Rodriguez, 31, has a career batting average of .256. He started his professional career in 2002 in the Brewers organization.

“Good for our man over there for 13 years in the minor leagues, 1,095 games,” Merloni said. “I don’t know who the next guy is now. We’ve got to find out who the next guy is.”
