– Wynn Resorts won a bid for a license from the Massachusetts Gaming Council to build a casino in the Greater Boston Area. Steve Wynn’s proposed resort defeated a bid from Mohegan Sun that would have put a casino at Suffolk Downs.
The resort will have more than 150 table games, 3,000 slots, a five-star hotel and a mall.
Said Callahan: “I’m going to guess that none of the windows in the high-rise hotel will open.”
The proposed plan is for the $1.6 billion casino and resort to be built on the polluted waterfront of Everett. The hosts said it will take a while for the project to be completed.
“Maybe four or five years from now before this is ready,” Dennis said. “They have to clean up all of the oil and stuff.”
Joked Callahan: “This is where all of the athletes stay when the Olympics come here.”
Added Minihane: “That wouldn’t be so bad. They’ve got the swimming right there. In the river.”

– Urban Outfitters apologized Monday for selling a Kent State sweatshirt with holes and a design that appears to look like blood stains.
The company pulled the sweatshirt but denied intending to make light of the 1970 shooting deaths of four student-protesters by the Ohio National Guard, an event that was one of the turning points in America’s opposition to the Vietnam War.
“I don’t understand the thought process behind how this came to be,” Minihane said, adding; “Even if it wasn’t their intention, shouldn’t there be somebody in the process of when this shirt was made to when they were sent out to the stores be smart enough to say, ‘Wait a minute, this is Kent State, and boy, this looks a lot like blood, and it’s vintage, this is really sending a bad message.”
Joked Callahan: “I like it, I want to get one.”
Minihane then looked up the price, which was $129.
Responded Callahan: “Forget it, I’m out.”
Said Dennis: “Garanimals is going to come out with pajama bottoms that have red welts on the legs — the Adrian Peterson collection.”

– Rapper Kanye West stopped a show in Australia because he was unhappy that some people would not stand during his performance. He announced that he would not start his next song until everyone was standing, and when he spotted two people who did not comply, he called them out. It eventually came to light that the individuals were handicapped, something West felt the need to confirm by sending a member of his security team into the crowd.
“What would make you go to his concert?” Fauria wondered. “Losing a bet? Being forced to do it as some sort of jail sentence? I mean, ‘No, your honor, I’d rather go to jail than go to one of his concerts.’ ”
Agreed Benz: “I would never go to a Kanye show, no.”
– Fauria challenged producer Joe Zarbano to a karaoke sing-off Friday night at the Hong Kong restaurant at Faneuil Hall.
“Yeah, because I’ve kind of just had it with him,” Fauria said of Zarbano, noting that Zarbano has been teasing him and didn’t invite him to play on his softball team.
Zarbano revealed that he would be using the song “Laid,” and he played a clip of the Matt Nathanson version that was featured in the “American Pie” movies.
“You’re dead,” Fauria said of Zarbano’s chances in the competition. “You can’t hit any of these tunes, and you can’t even play it off, like, badly. … I don’t know, I think you might need to rethink this song.”
Ryan Watenpaugh, 34, allegedly physically assaulted the woman after an argument on Aug. 4. The woman left, and when she returned her Pomeranian was gone. About a month later, the couple briefly reconciled and Watenpaugh cooked the woman a meal. He later texted her, “How’s your dog taste?” He also taunted her about what he planned to do with the rest of the remains, and she saw him drop off the paws on her doorstep.
“This is a guy that should probably go to jail forever,” Merloni said. “Because I will guarantee if he ever gets out will do that to humans.”
