The top stories of the day as recounted by Kirk Minihane.
A heated debate on how hard it will be for a gay person in the NFL.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the interview, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Gubernatorial candidates Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker met Tuesday night for a live debate. The two argued on a wide variety of topics, including the case of Jared Remy — son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy.

The hosts said they felt Baker did not take a hard enough stance against anything Coakley had to say.

“Charlie and ‘Marsha’ love each other,” said an incredulous Minihane. “What is going on here? What’s he doing? … He’s going to lose because of this. He’s playing defense, and you can’t play defense in this whole thing.”

“You should just come out and say what you are,” Callahan replied. “It should be all pro-business, anti-tax stuff. That’s all he should say.”

The hosts ran a clip of Baker’s response to the question posed if judges should be responsible for what happened in the Remy case.  To say the least, they were not pleased by his lack of emotion toward Coakley.

“Where’s the anger? Where’s the anger from Baker?” asked Minihane. “[Coakley] was district attorney when this happened. What are you doing?”

Replied Callahan: “[Baker] doesn’t even point the finger at her. This is a chance for Charlie to say, ‘blood on her hands.’ ”

– Earlier this week, actress Renee Zellweger faced speculation from fans and media pundits that she underwent plastic surgery on her face. Though she looks dramatically different, Zellweger said the change is because of a healthier lifestyle. The hosts, on the other hand, chalked up her facial differences to surgery.

Said Callahan: “Whoever her plastic surgeon is should use that in his ads because he did a terrific job.”

“She kind of looks like Naomi Watts now, a little bit,” said Minihane. “She looks better than she used to, but she doesn’t look at all like she used to.”

Replied Dennis: “In a much more positive kind of way, she is Bruce Jenner different. The difference between Bruce Jenner then and Bruce Jenner now is about as big as this difference is. But this is good.”

– Three Denver teenagers skipped school this week in apparent attempt to fly to the Middle East and join ISIS. The girls were stopped at an airport in Frankfurt, Germany, before they could reach the terrorist organization. The girls, aged 15, 16 and 17, were questioned by the FBI but won’t face charges.

“Weren’t they aware ISIS enslaves girls?” asked Callahan.

Asked Dennis: “Aren’t they aware that they were probably more likely to be beheaded and raped than given guns to march?”

– Comedian Hannibal Buress is facing criticism for calling actor and comedian Bill Cosby a rapist during his show last week in Philadelphia. This stems from the fact that Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by at least 13 women over the last decade.

“How is TMZ or somebody not all over this?” asked Dennis. “Is that not a big story? … Thirteen is a big number.”

A California woman tried to slide down the chimney into the house of a man she had met online and dated a few times. Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, 30, was arrested Sunday after screaming for help when she got stuck. Firefighters needed about two hours to free her, and she later was arrested for illegal entry and providing false information.

“How many times does this have to happen every year for somebody to realize you can’t break into somebody’s house sliding down their damn chimney,” Dennis said.

“Weren’t you like 8 years old when you realized that there was stuff in the way?” Callahan said. “I mean, you saw plenty of Christmas shows that Santa could get down there, but after like fourth grade you realized you couldn’t do it.”

The man said Nunez-Figueroa had tried to break into his home before, climbing on the roof.

Said Dennis: “They went out on six dates and then he said, ‘Uh, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to see you anymore.’ And she said, ‘No, I’m going to be up on your roof.’ ”

Said Callahan: “She didn’t want to try like a window or a basement door?”

– Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky gave her first public speech Monday at a conference in Philadelphia and talked about her 1990s affair with President Bill Clinton and the public humiliation she endured when it was revealed.

“Sixteen years ago, fresh out of college, a 22 year old intern in the White House — and more than averagely romantic — I fell in love with my boss in a 22-year old sort of way. It happens,” Lewinsky said. “But my boss was the president of the United States. That probably happens less often. Now I deeply regret it for many reasons, not the least of which is that people were hurt. And that is never OK.”

Lewinsky said she is striving to end cyberbullying, claiming that she was the first person to have her reputation destroyed via the Internet.

Said Callahan: “I’d rather be with the chick in the chimney.”

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with guest host Jerry Thornton, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Keene State College students ruined the New Hampshire town’s annual pumpkin festival this weekend. The unruly students held out-of-control parties at or near the event, threw things and destroyed property. Police in riot gear responded with tear gas.

In the end, 30 people were injured and at least 12 were arrested.

“What do you do at Pumpkin Fest?” asked Callahan. “Other than smash windows and break bottles over people’s heads, what do you do at Pumpkin Fest?”

Replied Thornton: “This is the kind of thing that gives riots a bad name, because there are good riots. I would say the Boston Massacre was for a good cause.”

“I would think that if you’re going to riot at a pumpkin fest, it would include smashing pumpkins on the ground, right?” said Dennis.

Asked Thornton: “What was the point of this? Was it anti-pumpkin? Were they being denied pumpkins? Are their pumpkin rights being infringed upon? … I could get behind that if they said there’s too much pumpkin spice.”

– A Hopkinton bus driver was arrested Saturday night for operating under the influence after he transported the high school cross country team home after a meet. It was 59-year-old Robert Murphy’s third drunk driving arrest.

“He was driving a school bus and he’s already had two [OUI arrests]?” asked Callahan.

“It was 10:30 p.m., it wasn’t like he was going to school in the morning, and had a couple of mimosas,” Thornton said. “How are you going to keep a school bus driver sober at 10:30?”

– An Ohio kidnapping victim of 11 years answered questions in front of a live audience for the first time since she was released from captivity a year ago. Michelle Knight went as far as to forgive her captor Ariel Castro, saying Castro only held her because he had a disease.

“I’m in the wrong profession,” Thornton said. “I want to be a therapist. And no matter what somebody comes at me with, I’m just going to say it’s a disease. His disease happens to be rape, torture, beating the girls that he impregnates so that they’ll miscarry.”

“[Knight] had five miscarriages when he was impregnating her and beating her for 11 years,” Callahan said incredulously. “But she forgives him.”
