On Wednesday’s Three for All segment on Middays with MFB, Tim Benz, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria focused their discussion on attractive lesbian women. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

When Fauria heard rumors that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi may be splitting up, it had him reflecting on just how attracted he’d always been to De Rossi despite the fact that she was a lesbian.

“Portia De Rossi was one of my top five,” Fauria said. “I have a top-five girl list that I have that I know I’m never going to get with obviously because I’m in a relationship. I have a wish list.”

Fauria asked Benz and Merloni if there are girls they had crushes on who are lesbian.

“During the break Tim and I went to LesbianLife.com, and honestly I couldn’t find one because every time a name popped up it was, ‘Well she’s not a lesbian, she’s bisexual,’ ” Merloni said.

Merloni said he was first introduced to lesbians by hearing about former tennis player Martina Navratilova before he even knew what the term meant. But he couldn’t find any that made the cut.

“I was going through it and the names, Rosie O’Donnell? Ellen?,” he said.

Benz’s lesbian crush was a player on the Pittsburgh Passion women’s football team.

“She was a wide receiver and I had a total crush on her,” Benz recalled, “and I had a friend who played for the team and I said, ‘What do you think? Set me up?’ She said, ‘No. You’re barking up the wrong tree. She plays for the other team.’ “

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines segment on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, Rob Bradford and Jon Meterparel.

Four injured as roller coaster derails at Six Flags Magic Mountain

A roller coaster hit a tree branch at the Six Flags Magic Mountain outside Los Angeles on Monday, dislodging the front car and leaving four injured. Nearly two dozen people were left hanging in the air for about three hours.

“I’d be like Larry David when he gets caught in a chair lift,” Minihane said.

Meterparel said: ”I think I would snap. I’d just lose my mind.”

Man chokes to death at South Dakota hot dog eating contest

A 47-year-old South Dakota man choked to death at a Fourth of July hot dog eating contest last Thursday after attempts to save him failed at the scene.

“He goes out doing what he loves, though,” Minihane said. “He was a serious competitive eater.”

Bradford said: ”Is there a line in the story that says he died doing what he loved?”

“No but I believe that,” Minihane responded.

The Custer Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored the event, canceled the pie-eating contest scheduled for the next day.

Fox 25 makes shake-up in leadership

Fox Television Stations recently announced a deal to send Fox 25 general manager Gregg Kelley from Boston to San Francisco. In exchange, KTVU’s Tom Raponi will head to the Hub.

KTVU is best known nationally for its infamous on-air gaffe when it fell victim to a racist prank following the fatal Asiana Flight 124 plane crash last year.

“That is an unbelievable clip,” Minihane said.

Bradford joked: ”I’m looking forward to the new Fox 25.”

What big move will the Sox make first?

On Tuesday’s Three for All segment on Middays with MFB, Tim BenzLou Merloni and Christian Fauria discussed the annual Anthrocon event, Rob Gronkowski‘s alleged method for scoring first-class plane tickets and the dangers of drinking swimming pool water. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– Having spent time in Pittsburgh, Benz is well aware of the annual Anthrocon event that takes place in the area during Independence Day weekend.

“These are people who enjoy their own lifestyle being about dressing up as animals,” Benz said. “Dressing up almost like mascots or wearing a fox head or walking around with a wolf tail or something like that.

“They meet together every year and it’s a big deal in Pittsburgh.”

Apparently, Pittsburgh isn’t the only place where these so-called furries convene.

“Lo and behold I’m driving home the other day and I see three people walking around with furry heads on, like a panda head and a teddy bear head,” Benz said. “I’m thinking to myself, ‘It’s too much of a coincidence.’ ”

Benz denied ever dressing up as a furry. Merloni and Fauria weren’t buying it.

“He’s lying,” Merloni said. “Look at his face.”

Fauria added: ”Were you Crash Bandicoot? I could see you as Crash Bandicoot.”

– Merloni found a post on Barstool Sports in which a female reader submitted an email claiming she gave Gronkowski her first-class plane ticket in exchange for an autograph on her boarding pass, a pair of his boxer shorts and a chance to touch his private area.

“That’s the beauty of being Gronk,” Fauria said. “Who’s got it better than him?”

Merloni said: ”I’ll let you grab me. Give me your seat.”

– Fauria recently was made aware of the danger of drinking water straight out of a hose in an HGTV Magazine article, but what he didn’t realize was just how filthy swimming pool water is.

“Swallowing pool water — it happens, guys, and it happens a lot,” said Fauria, who admitted to closing down a public pool by allowing his young daughter in without a swim diaper, and she proceeded to defecate. “Even some of the most well-maintained pools can have small bits of fecal matter that carry bacteria floating in them.”
