Here are the highlights from Thursday’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 flight from Boston to Los Angeles had to be diverted to Nebraska because of a disturbance one California man caused. Doug Adams, 26, masturbated during the flight and then attempted to exit the plane while it was mid-air. When the plane landed in Omaha, police detained him and admitted him into a local hospital.

“So the guy was sparring with the champ, they tell him to stop, he puts it back in his pants and tries to open the door,” Callahan said. “I guess that pretty well establishes his mental state. He wasn’t just giving it a grab.”

Said Dennis: “What they should do is let the passengers have at him before they take him off the plane.”

– A 37-year-old man in Wisconsin suffers from the rare persistent genital arousal syndrome. This means that husband and father of two Dale Decker can have up to 100 orgasms in a single day.

The hosts said they believe the man is a complete phony.

“But how do you prove this is a hoax?” asked Minihane. “You can prove a woman has three boobs.”

Replied Dennis: “You can take him into a room, put a doctor there, videotape him, strip him naked and watch it happen.”

Asked Callahan: “Can’t they fix the poor guy? Can’t they do a little procedure?”

– Judge George O’Toole allowed a two-month delay in the trial for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. However, O’Toole will not allow the trial to move from Boston.

O’Toole said it would be difficult to find people anywhere in the country who did not know about the case, and a fair trial can happen in Massachusetts.

“You’d be in search of the biggest dopes, the biggest dummies, in the world,” Callahan said.

Said Dennis: “This is going to be compelling. This is going to be probably more interesting and just as well covered as the Whitey Bulger thing.”

ESPN suspended Bill Simmons for three weeks after his profanity-laced comments about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, whom he called a liar.

In a podcast earlier this week — since removed by ESPN — Simmons ripped Goodell for claiming he was unaware of the security video that showed Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in a hotel elevator.

“I just think not enough is being made out of the fact that they knew about the tape and they knew what was on it,” Simmons said. “Goodell, if he didn’t know what was on that tape, he’s a liar. I’m just saying it. He is lying. I think that dude is lying. If you put him up on a lie detector test that guy would fail. For all these people to pretend they didn’t know is such [expletive]. It really is. It’s such [expletive]. And for him to go in that press conference and pretend otherwise, I was so insulted. I really was.

“The best point that a lot of people have made about this is this is exactly why he fined and suspended Sean Payton for a season [for Bountygate]. Sean Payton was like, ‘I didn’t know.’ [Goodell] was like, ‘Well, ignorance [is not an excuse],’ and suspended him for a year. This is the same exact situation and it’s worse, because he knew and he’s a liar. … I don’€™t like liars. I think that people who you know they are lying and they are lying anyway, those are the worst people.We know you are lying. … Roger Goodell has no integrity whatsoever.”

Simmons also challenged management to punish him.

“I really hope somebody calls me or emails me and says I’m in trouble for anything I say about Roger Goodell,” Simmons said. “Because if one person says that to me, I’m going public. You leave me alone. The commissioner’s a liar and I get to talk about that on my podcast. … Please, call me and say I’m in trouble. I dare you.”

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Simmons and others at ESPN have been critical of Goodell in the past, but ESPN executives reportedly were upset that Simmons took it as far as he did and called them out.

“Every employee must be accountable to ESPN and those engaged in our editorial operations must also operate within ESPN’s journalistic standards,” the network said in a statement. “We have worked hard to ensure that our recent NFL coverage has met that criteria. Bill Simmons did not meet those obligations in a recent podcast, and as a result we have suspended him for three weeks.”

– When the Yankees head to Boston Friday, Derek Jeter‘s last three games will have very little meaning. New York was eliminated from playoff contention after blowing a three-run lead and dropping a 9-5 decision to the AL East champion Orioles on Wednesday afternoon.

“It’s tough. It’s what you play for. It’s a rough feeling,” said Jeter, who went 0-for-4 as the designated hitter.

It’s the first time since 1992-93 that the Yankees have missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons, and just the second time (along with 2008) in Jeter’s 20-year career that he will not participate in the postseason.

“It’s disappointing. It’s frustrating,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “This is not where you want to be at this time of year.”

Said Jeter: “For the guys that are coming back and the team that plays it’s a feeling you shouldn’t like and you shouldn’t want to get used to.”

Jeter’s final home game is scheduled for Thursday, although there is rain is in the forecast. If that game is rained out, his final Yankee Stadium at-bat will go down as an eighth-inning groundout to first base. He received an extended ovation after the out, but he did not leave his seat in the dugout.

“The game wasn’t over. We were trying to come back,” he explained. “You can’t help but notice. I catch myself looking around sometimes and I’ve always tried not to do that, but I’ve caught myself a couple of times.”

Jeter was on deck in the ninth when Brett Gardner struck out to end the game.

NASCAR star Tony Stewart will not face criminal charges for his role in the death of Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race in Canandaigua, New York, last month, although Ward’s family announced that it will pursue civil damages.

“Our son got out of his car during caution when the race was suspended. All the other vehicles were reducing speed and not accelerating except for Stewart, who intentionally tried to intimidate Kevin by accelerating and sliding his car toward him, causing the tragedy,” the family said in a statement. “The focus should be on the actions of Mr. Stewart. This matter is not at rest and we will pursue all remedies in fairness to Kevin.”

Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said that toxicology results showed Ward was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his death and “the levels determined were enough to impair judgment.” Tantillo also said there was no evidence Steward did anything wrong.

“The videos did not demonstrate any aberrational driving by Tony Stewart until the point of impact with Kevin Ward, at which point his vehicle veered to the right up the track as a result of the collision. Prior to that, his course was pretty straight,” Tantillo said.

Said Stewart: “This has been the toughest and most emotional experience of my life, and it will stay with me forever. I’m very grateful for all the support I’ve received and continue to receive/ While much of the attention has been on me, it’s important to remember a young man lost his life. Kevin Ward Jr.’s family and friends will always be in my thoughts and prayers.”

Christian was sad to learn that the lady with 3 boobs, was faking it. Tim points out that the Philly Ice Guys were not received well. Joey steps in for Lou to discuss the story of a man who slipped a disc in his back, which now causes him to have 100 orgasms per day against his will.
Buster Olney spoke with Tim and Christian today regarding Derek Jeter's final three games, which will be at Fenway Park. Buster outlines how bad Jeter has played this year offensively and defensively. He also talks about what to expect from the Red Sox off-season, including a power-hitting from the West Coast, and what can be expected from Mookie Betts.
