Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– During WEEI’s radio broadcast of Wednesday’s Red Sox-Orioles broadcast, Merloni, serving as analyst alongside Joe Castiglione, was supposed to drop some U2 references after being challenged by his co-hosts earlier in the day. Merloni initially forgot, but in the ninth inning he was reminded and dropped a couple of references to the band’s songs, such as saying the Red Sox “still haven’t found that they’re looking for” when referring to the closer situation.

“Too bad you didn’t have a really tall guy named Joshua: ‘Man, that guy’s a tree in the left-handed batter’s box,’ ” Benz said.

– Former boxer Mike Tyson, in Toronto to promote his one-man stage show, responded angrily when a talk-show host brought up the fact that he’s a convicted rapist. Tyson unleashed a series of expletives on live TV — including calling CP24 host Nathan Downer a “rat piece of [expletive]” — before Downer ended the interview.

“He didn’t want to go there. Mike was trying, it was like internally he was trying to talk himself out of just crossing that bridge and being like, ‘I hate you, I want to eat your children, I want to bite your ear off,’ ” Fauria said.

Said Merloni: “He was kind of like, ‘I’m in a good place right now, but you’re bringing me back, man, and this ain’t good for you. That guy, any idea how close he was to death? Tyson was close to being where he was like 10 years ago right there.”

– During Thursday morning’s Dennis & Callahan show, Kirk Minihane voiced his displeasure with how his co-hosts were running the show, calling them “losers” while Gerry Callahan encouraged him to continue his rant.

“Where did the rage come from?” Benz asked.

“I was just laughing out loud,” Fauria said.

The guys opened the show discussing the latest on Ray Rice.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’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.

– A judge in South Africa ruled that Oscar Pistorius did not intentionally kill his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, when he shot her to death in their home last year. Pistorius said he thought Steenkamp was a burglar when he shot her repeatedly through a bathroom door.

“It just defies logic,” Dennis said.

Said Callahan: “You have a gun, you’re armed through the teeth, and you’re afraid that they’ll see you so you shoot through the door. Have you ever heard of such a thing?”

Steenkamp was a popular model in South Africa who was set to appear on a reality TV show at the time of her death.

“I don’t know South African law, but are there any extra charges added because she’s so friggin’ hot?” Callahan asked.

Said Minihane: “Yes, there’s the ‘so friggin’ hot’ charge, not often used in South Africa, but it’s happened occasionally.”

Minihane noted Pistorius already has a new girlfriend.

“She’s not nearly as hot,” Callahan said. “His girlfriend’s kind of homely.”

Said Minihane: “When you kill your ex-girlfriend, you go from a 10 to like a 6.”

– Former boxer Mike Tyson, in Toronto to promote his one-man stage show, responded angrily when a talk-show host brought up the fact that he’s a convicted rapist. Tyson unleashed a series of expletives on live TV — including calling CP24 host Nathan Downer a “rat piece of [expletive]” — before Downer ended the interview.

With the Ray Rice situation making headlines, it’s been noted that Tyson is being welcomed to cities such as Toronto despite his history of domestic violence.

“We had him on and we yukked it up with him. So, we’re as guilty as anyone else, right?” Minihane said. “We call people frauds; we’re total frauds on this.”

This led to a discussion of actors and athletes who are celebrated despite them having a domestic violence incident in their past.

“If Tyson’s caught on video doing one of these things, it’s all different,” Minihane said. “The only reason Rice is different is because he got caught.”

– Morgan Freeman reportedly will play an iconic civil rights lawyer in “Ted 2,” which is being filmed in Boston.

Rumors have it that Ted, a talking teddy bear, will get married in the sequel to the popular 2012 movie that stars Boston native Mark Wahlberg.

“Wahlberg’s career fascinates me,” Minihane said, noting the variety of roles he plays and movies he’s in.

“The thing I like about him is he still seems like just a meathead from Boston,” Callahan said.
