Gregg Doyel of CBS joined the show to discuss the future of Wes Welker.
The top stories of the day as recounted by Butch.
The guys discussed Jimmy Garappolo getting the start this Thursday in the preseason finale.
Dino, Gerry and Butch opened the show by discussing the old time baseball game.

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

The Emmys were held Monday night, and the TV awards show featured joking about lead actor nominee Matthew McConaughey and a tribute to Robin Williams from fellow comedian and close friend Billy Crystal.

“Are we Robin Williamsed out, kind of?” Stearns asked. “Is it sacrilegious to say that?”

“Every magazine at the checkout counter has Robin Williams and has for the last 2 1/2 weeks,” noted Dennis, while expressing appreciation for Williams’ talent.

“Breaking Bad,” the AMC show that ended its run last year, won five awards, including outstanding drama series.

“For how many more years will ‘Breaking Bad’ win Emmys?” Callahan wondered. “Hasn’t it been off the air?”

– Allstate released its annual safe-driving rankings of the nation’s 200 biggest urban areas, and Fort Collins, Colorado, finished first for a fourth time with an per-driver average of 14.2 years between collisions.

Massachusetts’ two biggest cities were at the bottom of the list. Worcester drivers have a collision every 4.3 years, while Bostonians go 4.4 years between crashes.

Washington, D.C., which finished in the bottom spot last year, was third-to-last at 5.1.

“We are — I believe I heard this correctly — 134 percent more likely to get in an accident in Boston,” Dennis said.

Stearns said he’s lived in a few locales across the country, and he’s convinced Boston drivers are the best.

“L.A. drivers are the worst. Detroit drivers drive the fastest on the worst roads. We’re the best drivers, because we’re aggressive as hell, but we tip our hat,” Stearns said. “A guy cut me off this morning at 5:45, John — I was a little late — I tip my hat to the guy. I tip my hat, it was a good move.”

Said Dennis: “See, we deal with rotaries. I don’t think they have rotaries in Michigan. They don’t have rotaries in L.A. That’s part of the problem.”

Added Dennis: “You’re part of the problem, Callahan, you drive like a maniac.”

Responded Callahan: “No, I’m an excellent driver. ‘€¦ I haven’t had a fender-bender in 30 years.”

Here are the highlights from Monday’€™s Three For All on Middays with MFB with Christian Fauria and guest host Danny Picard. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Auburn commit Kerryon Johnson opted for something a little bit more extreme than Gatorade in order to stay sharp during a high school football game Friday. The running back chugged a bottle of mustard at the sidelines at one point in order to avoid cramps.

“€œI have never seen anything like that in my entire life,” Picard said. “€œIf you had told me that this was a true story, I would say, ‘€˜No, no way.’ ”

“So every time I eat a hot dog, I’€™m also hydrating,” Fauria remarked.

While Fauria never chugged mustard before games during his NFL career, he did opt for another unusual beverage to stay cramp-free.

“€œI used to drink Pedialyte. I would drink, almost felt like a gallon, of Pedialyte before each game,”€ Fauria said. “After doing it for like 13 years, some researcher said, ‘€˜You know, you’€™re not getting any benefit from that.’€™ ”

“€œYou were in the NFL, and you were drinking Pedialyte?” Picard asked.

As is the case seemingly every year, drama and controversy surrounded MTV’€™s Video Music Awards, even during the event’€™s pre-show parties.

Shots rang out during an event hosted by singer Chris Brown during the early morning hours Sunday in West Hollywood. Music producer Suge Knight was shot six times in the attack.

“œThis is not the first time this has been news,” Picard said, as Knight was previously involved in the drive-by shooting that claimed the life of rapper Tupac Shakur in 1996.

While Knight was wounded, reports emerged that the assailant was aiming for Brown and pop star Justin Bieber.

“œHow did they miss?”€ Fauria joked.

“€œLook, I know people hate Biebs, but they’€™re trying to take him out with bullets?”€ Picard said.
