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.

One man's completely uneducated guess at five headlines you'll be reading this week … 1. Pierce scores 25, Garnett adds 18 in win over Knicks

It's impossible to attach any big picture thoughts to the Celtics based on the win over the Bucks on Sunday night.

I've heard enough about Kendrick Perkins. I mean, really? Still? It's been six days. My patience has worn off. A nice player, yes. A contributor to the 2008 championship team? Sure. Gritty. Tough. A perfect fifth banana. The right guy for the right team.

Bobby Orr has a statue. Makes sense, right? For all the reasons we know about. Changed the game, maybe the best player ever, flying through the air vs. St. Louis, all that stuff. A statue for No. 4 is the no brainer to end all no brainers.

The 2010-11 Miami Heat have a record of 39-15, third-best in the NBA. They are on pace to win 60 games, no small feat (only been done once in the franchise's 23-year history, and while this isn't the Lakers in terms of lore this isn't the Clippers we're talking about either).

Report Card time and I'm still not sure what happened. I was in the press box for Jets 28, Patriots 21 (sitting right next to Suzy Kolber, who it should be noted did not seem suitably impressed when I broke out what I thought was a more than passable Joe Namath impression) and I've since watched the game twice.  And I'm still not sure what happened.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – It's the not at all awaited return of the Jersey Four! Here are the four things you really, really need to know about the Jets following Wednesday's practice (while understanding that a third “really” would not have been professional):
