John, Gerry and Jerry Thornton discussed the Red Sox sweep of the Royals.

In Friday’s edition of Three for All on Middays with MFB, Tim Benz, Christian Fauria and producer Joe Zarbano re-visited American Ninja Warrior Kacy Catanzaro and whether or not to bring a date to a wedding. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

On Thursday, the guys talked about Catanzaro, a Towson University gymnast who became the first woman to make the final of American Ninja Warrior. Benz and Fauria continued to discuss Catanzaro Friday after Benz linked to her Instagram photos, her diet and her ninja submission video, which has over 100,000 views, on the MFB home page.

“It is Kacy Catanzaro madness on the Internet, she is all over the place,” Benz said.

Benz and Fauria broke down Catanzaro’s photos and her abdominal muscles.

“I’ll admit, a little too abby,” Benz said.

Fauria said: “Well she was a gymnast. I love the whole ab look.”

“Her abs are a little much,” Benz said.

Given Catanzaro’s new stardom, Fauria asked whether or not her boyfriend should be worried.

“He is panicked,” Benz said. “It was great for about 24 hours. Now this is like A.J. McCarron with Katherine Webb. This is the exact same thing.”

– With Lou Merloni off for the day, Zarbano brought his own topic to the segment. He asked the guys whether or not he should bring a date to his friend’s wedding.

“Would this be a guaranteed close for you?” Fauria asked.

“No,” Zarbano responded.

Zarbano said this person someone he could be interested in dating, but isn’t sure whether or not he wants to introduce her to his friends.

“Have you ever seen the movie Wedding Crashers? Do not bring a date to the wedding,” Fauria said. “I’m telling you, don’t do it.

“If you work at it. That is the perfect place to meet girls.”

Benz said: ”You’ve got to look at it from an NFL draft point of view. Bringing a date is sort of like you only trade up in the draft if you absolutely know you have to have this player. If it’s a guaranteed lock and just a few drinks at a wedding to be the closer, then yes, bring her. Otherwise, don’t bother. All the other girls that are not her and are single are thinking the same way.”

Zarbano said: “I’m going solo.”

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

Missile downs Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine, killing 298

A suspected Russian-made surface-to-air missile downed a Malaysia Airlines jet with 298 on board Thursday in a controlled section of Ukraine. The attack killed all 298 people.

It was an area of Ukraine that most Asian airlines had stopped flying over in March for safety concerns.

“It’s a dangerous area and the pilot says, ‘I can save a half-hour, let’s just go through it,’” Callahan said.

Said Dennis: ”We’ll get you to the gate on time.”

Callahan then used the situation to take a shot at President Barrack Obama, saying jokingly, ”This was so bad they went right from the airline and shot down to war in Gaza, that Obama only played 27 [holes of golf] yesterday. Forget the 36, we are stopping after 27.”

Buckley said: ”If you can’t go after Obama on tangible stuff, you make up stuff.”

“[Obama] mentioned it for 40 seconds, and then chuckled about Joe Biden back in Delaware and then he went to two fundraisers in New York, do you think that was appropriate?” Callahan said. ”I don’t even understand why he wouldn’t cancel the fundraisers. He’s so concerned about appearances, right?”

He continued: “Don’t you have to give the appearance of toughness and concern. There were 300 dead.”

Buckley took Obama’s side, saying, ”We can debate whether or not he should’ve changed his schedule. I don’t think he lacks concern, I’m comfortable saying that.”

After the debate subsided, Dennis played audio clips from ABC News’ John Wendle, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and Obama.

“You know who doesn’t make enough money? First responders,” Dennis said. “Can you imagine being first on the scene, dealing with that image?”

Callahan said: ”Just think every time you head out to work, you’re going to see blood, limbs, death.”

Jerry Sandusky’s son talks about bedtime ‘ritual’

Matt Sandusky, the adopted son of former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, spoke to Oprah Winfrey about the alleged sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his father.

“It’s his adopted son, which is even sicker levels of depravity,” Callahan said.

In Thursday’s edition of Three For All on Middays with MFB, Lou Merloni, Tim Benz and Christian Fauria discussed the lawsuit filed against Seth MacFarlane and his “Ted” character, The Rock‘s new diet for his upcoming “Hercules” film, and the fist woman to reach the American Ninja Warrior finals.

To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

According to new copyright infringement lawsuit, Bengal Mangle Productions is claiming that the obscene and crude teddy bear Ted from the comedy of the same name is a an imitation of “Charlie the Abusive Teddy Bear,” who talks, drinks and acts just like the vulgar teddy bear that helped gross over $500 million at the box office.

“I’ve seen the video,” Benz said. “[Charlie] is a bigger bear. There’s a person inside the bear suit. He’s not quite as cute and cuddly as Ted looks to be. He doesn’t have quite the Teddy Ruxpin look that Ted has. … He’s a little rough around the edges. One thing it isn’t is funny. It’s not funny at all. … Maybe Seth just throws him a couple hundred thousand under the table and say, ‘Go away.’ ”

“I’d pay him a couple hundred grand, come up with a little settlement to be able to use Charlie [in "Ted 2"], and beat the hell out of him in the movie,” Merloni said.

– As if he wasn’t imposing enough already, actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has gotten downright ripped for his new role in the film “Hercules.”

To achieve the physique to play the Greek hero, Johnson ate seven meals a day, consisting of 18 ounces of steak, 16 ounces of halibut, 16 ounces of chicken, 5 1/2 cups of rice, 14 egg whites and more.

“œSeven meals,” Fauria said. “You really need to live your life and everything around your life has to revolve around sitting down and eating. If you’re going to be a meathead, ripped-up actor, or just ripped-up, you’ve got to find time to eat.”

Kacy Catanzaro, a former Towson University gymnast, became the first woman to make it to the final of America Ninja Warrior. Despite being just 5-foot-0 and 100 pounds, Catanzaro breezed through the obstacle course with little issue.

“She’s the new ‘it girl.’ She’s going to be all over the place. If she wins this competition, she’ll be hosting the ESPYs next year,” Benz said.

“We couldn’t do it,” Fauria said. “You have to be that little gymnast-type guy. Lots of upper-body strength.”

“Well, ninjas are renowned for being 6-foot-5, 250, are they?” Benz said.
