The pair along with 33-year-old Michael Gordon were at a bar before going back to a house Gordon was dog-sitting at where the fight happened.
“I think it’s exactly the place [South Carolina] where there are a lot of closeted guys, military guys, or officials who don’t want to get in trouble,” said Minihane.
“Gamecock fans,” Dennis joked.
Added Callahan: “33? What’s he doing in that group?”
“Male cougar,” Minihane replied.

— Foxwoods has cancelled a future Bill Cosby show in wake of the sexual assault allegations against him, but there are shows still scheduled to go on in Boston and Worcester in February.
“If I already had my tickets, and I don’t care if I paid $200 for them, I wouldn’t go see this pig,” Dennis said.
“Doesn’t he have a right to perform, though?” Callahan asked.
“Yeah, he does, and I have a right not to go watch him,” Dennis replied.
“Exactly. Shouldn’t the marketplace determine who goes to see him,” Callahan responded.
— On a Fox News live broadcast from Ferguson, Missouri, shots were fired while Steve Harrigan was reporting on Monday night, following the ruling of there being no indictment for Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Harrigan kept yelling at his crew to move back.
“So the commissioner, or the chief said no shots were fired by his guys, not one. Who is shooting, and what are they shooting at?” Callahan asked.
“They are just shooting into the air. It’s a Palestinian thing. Haven’t you seen that in Palestine,” Dennis replied.
There were a number of buildings set on fire in the town following the ruling, some still burning into the morning.
“I guarantee you there would not have been 25 fires lighted during the daylight hours,” said Dennis. “They are much more effective at night, right? That’s like bon-fires at pep rallies.”
“You’d never light a fire at 9 a.m.,” Callahan replied.

“Do you blame the parents?” Callahan asked. “It must be a tough time anyway.”
“It’s not their choice,” Dennis replied.
“Yes, I do,” countered Minihane. “It’s someone who chose to live her life that way.”

Dennis added: “Window cleaners in Manhattan on skyscrapers make 40 grand a year. 40, for that.”
