In Wednesday’€™s edition of “Headlines”€ on Dennis & Callahan, Steve Buckley brought three stories to the table as he filled in for Kirk Minihane.

- The first story related to the Aaron Hernandez case, with a Boston Herald report noting that some evidence — including multiple cell phones and iPads –€” cannot be used because the police overstepped their search warrant’€™s boundaries.

“An iPhone 5, a BlackBerry Bold cellphone, and three iPads with GPS tracking capability were taken from Hernandez’€™s North Attleboro home June 18, 2013, by police investigating the slaying of Odin L. Lloyd the day before,” wrote the Boston Herald. “€œJudge E. Susan Garsh said the warrant let police look for one cellphone with Hernandez’€™s Connecticut number and did not apply to the five devices, or make any mention of GPS devices.”

Despite the apparent break for Hernandez, all three hosts remained confident that the remaining admissible evidence — including video of Hernandez walking into his home with a gun after Lloyd’€™s death — would be enough to get him convicted.

“There’€™s still a lot of evidence,” Gerry Callahan said. “€œHe’€™s not walking.”€

- The second story was about the recent marriage of Boston Marathon bombing surviver James Costello marrying Krista D’€™Agostino, his nurse who helped him recover through surgery and rehabilitation.

“It’€™s a classic 1940s movie,”€ Buckley said. “€œHe was banged up, he went to the hospital, he met the nurse. His eyes met her, her eyes met his, something clicked and they got storied.”€

“That’€™s a nice story,” John Dennis responded.

- The final story focused on the reaction to Monday’€™s tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys. One of the videos shown saw Williams borrow a woman’€™s scarf, wrap it over her face and act like a woman from Iran, which led some on Twitter to call the video offensive.

They then played the video, with all three finding the video harmless.

“That sounds awfully offensive,”€ Callahan said sarcastically. “I can’€™t believe they let that through the censors.”

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’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.

– Benz recounted an experience he had flying from Boston to Pittsburgh over the weekend. One of the other passengers on the plane was Sean O’Malley, the Archbishop of Boston, giving Benz confidence that he arrive safely.

“I was texting with a friend of mine, I said, hey, this plane’s not going down, I’m on board with a guy who was almost pope. Nothing’s going wrong with this plane, right?” Benz said.

However, as the plane started to descend it dropped quickly and there were some indicators that something might not be right.

“Everybody’s looking at the pope guy,” said Benz, who was seated directly behind O’Malley. “Now I don’t think too many people realized who he was. They just knew it was some guy in religious garb. ‘€¦ So everybody’s looking at him and he’s just reading — reading the Bible it whatever he was reading.”

After a second drop and a hard landing, Benz addressed O’Malley.

“I get up and I put my hands on the guy’s shoulder and I say, ‘I’m glad your here.’ And he looks at me and he says, ‘I was in South Africa taking seaplanes that were about five- or six-seaters for 10 years. This was nothing.’ He gives me like this Vince Lombardi, grizzled, flying veteran speech, and I felt so small, so insignificant.”

– Merloni took a trip over the weekend to Storyland in New Hampshire with his wife and son and a few other families, and he’s still recovering from the stress and anxiety.

“Every one of the couples, they’re fighting with their wives, everybody hated the kids, yelling at the kids, they’re tired, running around all day long, they go to sleep late, they’re running around all day at the park, your kid’s a little wise-ass. The next thing you know that carries over to you and your wife, you’re yelling at each other, the other guy’s wife, she’s yelling at my wife ‘€¦ everybody was on edge.

“It’s great for the kids. Everybody is on edge. You go up there and it’s fun but you’re pulling your hair out. And you just want to say, ‘Whatever happens up here, let’s leave it up here.’ ‘€¦ We’ll let it all go and just relax. Because it is chaos for like 24 hours.”

Fauria said it’s a similar experience at Disneyland.

“They are selling such a crock to families — the happiest place,” Fauria said. “If you really want to get a good laugh, if you don’t want to ever have children, sit at the exit of Disneyland at around 5:30, 6, 7, 8 o’clock at night, when it’s starting to close. You’ll see kids crying, melting down over balloons, a churro, you name it. ‘I want a shirt, daddy.’ Moms yelling at daughters, husbands yelling at wives, grandparents just pissed off being pushed in wheelchairs. It is the most terrible experience in your life.”

– Fauria’s weekend was highlighted by an early birthday present from his girlfriend, who presented him with a black labrador retriever that he named Lola.

Fauria played the audio from the moment his girlfriend surprised him, when he repeatedly asked her, “What the hell are you doing?”

“Do you think I was a little too rough?” Fauria said. “Initially I was like, whoa, what are we going to do with the dog?”

Said Merloni: “Keep the dog and your kids out of Storyland. I don’t think there’s any pets allowed in there anyways.”

Tom Curran on Welker's latest concussion.
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.
