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.

Mailbag time and it seems that some people can't live with the idea that Tom Brady might not be perfect.

Report Card time and I think we've heard and read enough about Tom Brady's body language and yelling on the sidelines and the press conference after the game Sunday. Who cares? Brady was pissed and frustrated and acted exactly like he did when things didn't go well in 2003 and 2005 or last year or his junior year at San Mateo.

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 ... --

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.

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.
