Here are the highlights from Friday’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.
– Multiple reports indicate former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family were involved in a drunken fight at a house party in Anchorage. Palin and her husband, Todd, were invited to a champion snowmobile racer’s birthday party and took their kids along.
A brawl ensued after the family showed up, and daughter Bristol, of “Dancing with the Stars” fame, was at the middle of it, allegedly throwing multiple punches.
Said Dennis: “It was like an intrasquad scrimmage.”
Callahan wondered about the weather in Alaska because of the snowmobiler’s party. “Is there snow there now?” he asked.
Replied Dennis: “There’s always snow there.”
– Investigators found three children dead inside of vermin-infested home in Blackstone on Thursday, just two weeks after four children were removed from the house because of alleged abuse or neglect by the resident of the home, 31-year-old Erika Murray.
“Mother of the year candidate,” Dennis said sarcastically.
Dennis continued: “I heard a neighbor interviewed saying, ‘You walk past the house and you can smell the stench that’s ungodly coming from in.’ ”
Said Minihane: “That’s unbelievable that this happens in this world.”
– Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is joining “Good Morning America” as a contributor. He’ll start on the show on Sept. 15.
Callahan wondered if Tebow will try to make an NFL return: “Is he going to make a comeback at some point?”
Replied Minihane: “He sucks, he’s not coming back.”
– Detectives found 50 dead cats in four freezers and 30 cats running around in a man’s home in South Florida. Douglas Westcott, who owns the home, also happened to be serving a warrant for child pornography.
Dennis jokingly said the man could enjoy the cats for food.
Said Dennis: “Well, in case he can’t get out to shop, he can just defrost a cat for dinner.”
Replied Minihane: “I hate [cats] so much. When I hear this story, I should have sympathy for cats; I have none.”
