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.

On Wednesday afternoon, Tom Glavine to going to learn that he is a first-ballot selection to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Glavine is going to breeze through.

I thought it would be best while temperatures were running a little high not to weigh in on the "Is David Ortiz a Hall of Famer?" debate.

I'm a non-believer.

Koji Uehara is having the best season ever produced by a Red Sox relief pitcher. And at $4.25 million, you could easily make the case this is the best free agent contract in franchise history.

Full disclosure: I'm on the Dennis & Callahan show every day from 6-10 a.m., though regrettably it still remains in an undefined position.

"Whether you like me or hate me, what’s wrong is wrong. It was unprofessional and silly, and kind of a silly way to get someone hurt on your team as well." -- Alex Rodriguez

  Jacoby Ellsbury is gone.

Bill Belichick will speak Wednesday to the media for the first time since Aaron Hernandez -- a player Belichick both drafted and signed to a $40 million extension -- was arrested for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

"The City of Boston and the surrounding communities have faced many challenges since the bombings at the marathon finish line. The new cover of Rolling Stone has garnered much attention due to its sensationalized depiction of one of the alleged bombers. My family and I were personally affected by these individuals’ actions.

For the last couple of weeks, there have been people out there who wanted Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick to explain things.

Odin Lloyd was killed in an industrial park, and Aaron Hernandez will very likely die in prison because of it.

Doc wins. He's going to get what he wants. And what Doc Rivers -- lead vocalist in the band formerly known as Ubuntu -- desperately wants is to no longer coach the Boston Celtics.

Let us rid ourselves of any confusion: Tim Tebow will never be a successful NFL quarterback. His days of quarterbacking relevance, save for a fluky half season, ended when he left Urban Meyer and the SEC.

Is Bill Belichick the greatest coach in NFL history?

Ready to get lost in a wilderness of ifs?

I can't figure out Jacoby Ellsbury.  That's not exactly right, actually. Turns out if you go to his baseball-reference page and simply cross out 2011, you'll get closer to consistency, closer to the answer. 
Kirk Minihane

It would be one thing if Doc Emrick were your play-by-play man for Game 1 of Bruins-Rangers on Thursday night.
Kirk Minihane

The Celtics are going to do this.
Kirk Minihane
04/26/2013 - 11:18am
The use of the word "courage" has been used, shall we say, quite liberally over the last couple of years.
Kirk Minihane

Walk me through this.
Kirk Minihane
04/18/2013 - 10:52pm
Where do we go from here?  That's the question, right? It will never be the same in Boston after what happened on Monday afternoon, that's what we've read and heard over the last three days. 
Kirk Minihane
04/11/2013 - 5:54am
Of course Wade Boggs should have his number retired by the Red Sox. Is this even really a debate?
Kirk Minihane
04/05/2013 - 7:24am
Why doesn't Boston hate Rick Pitino anymore?
Kirk Minihane
03/27/2013 - 6:22am
Here's the Jackie Bradley Jr. question, plain and simple: Are you willing to give up a full season in 2019 for nine games in 2013? 
Kirk Minihane

Indefensible.
