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 since 2009 and is now part of The Dennis & Callahan Show.

 "He doesn't need to. I've told him he doesn't need to." -- Terry Francona, when asked last week if Jonathan Papelbon needs to look over his shoulder this season.

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

Clearly, a lot has changed in the last year for the Red Sox.

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.

I think the 2011 Red Sox are going to be good. I'll even give you very good.

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).

 "I think everybody wants a new deal, but I wouldn't say anything I did this past year would warrant one or anything like that. … You go into the offseason thinking about what you can do to get better, and there's plenty of things I can do to have a better year."

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.

"I recognize this week, this is about Bill Belichick vs. Rex Ryan. There’s no question. It’s personal. This is about him against myself, and that’s what it’s going to come down to.
