About Kirk Minihane

Kirk Minihane thinks "Slap Shot" is -- without argument -- the best sports movie ever made and is also convinced the 1985-86 Celtics would have finished with a record of 78-4 if they had cared about the regular season. He has been a columnist at WEEI.com since 2009 and is now part of The Dennis & Callahan Show.

“It’s always so hard here. And I tell you, people are supposed to have your back at home, you know what I’m saying? It never happens. It’s always like that. I’ve been here more than a decade and scorekeepers here are always horrible." -- David Ortiz, June 18, 2014

On its own, it is absurd to claim that someone should lose his job simply because of the misdeeds of an adult son or daughter. There is and should be, in the end, personal accountability.

I watched all 48 minutes of Celtics-Heat Wednesday night (what a hero, huh?), soup to nuts -- saw Rajon Rondo play his best game in almost a year, saw Avery Bradley outplay

  And now we're back in the tall grass with David Ortiz and his never-ending quest for respect and another contract. A return to the weeds.

Now that we are 90 or so hours removed from Broncos 26, Patriots 16, it seems temperatures have cooled enough to allow a somewhat measured (and, really, who can't get enough measured opinion about sports?) look at the two criticisms being tossed at
