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 Week 8 NFL picks, made while basking in the sweet glow of an 8-6 record last week. Come on, you can smell an 11-2 week, right? The stars are aligned, it just seems right. I only wish I could have done it while Tom Bosley was alive. To the picks we go ... --

FOXBORO -- Watching the fourth quarter and overtime at Gillette Stadium Sunday, one was tempted to ask the question: Was Deion Branch ever gone?

Week 6 picks and it's really not going well. Nine games under .500 for the season? Back-to-back 5-9 weeks? Losing my first Lock of the Week? It's falling apart -- I feel like Henry Hill in the third act of "Goodfellas." Whenever I get ready to make a pick I look out the window and see helicopters.

One man's account of the start of the Favre/Moss era AND the start of a new-found respect for ESPN. OK, maybe just the start of the Favre/Moss era. 9:15 p.m.: And after a 45-minute weather delay we have a kickoff. Good thing, because the announce crew was getting a little loopy trying to kill time. Look at this exchange at 8:56 p.m.:

Report Card Time and I think this idea that Bill Belichick's pregame speech was the difference on Monday night is great if you are either 11 years old or couldn't think of a better angle to write about after the game.

Report Card time and it's becoming clear that this team is going to go as far as Tom Brady can take it. Forget the salad days of 2003 and 2004, with the offense and defense as equal partners in the road to glory.

Here come the Week 3 picks, and I'm just trying to get back to .500. Not a great Week 2 (6-9-1) and since Week 1 was my bye I stand three games under for the season as we head into this weekend. Somewhere Stu Feiner is shaking his head in disgust. So let the march to mediocrity begin. Here are the picks (home team in caps) … --

Mailbag time and the people think Bill Belichick is not doing enough by doing too much. Plenty of love songs penned for Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel in the 'bag this week, "Almost Paradise" style.
