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's more grief for the man Formerly Known as The Genius and his merry band of defensive players.

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) … --

Back to the bag.  It's been a while, but Patriots season means you'll be getting another weekly installment of the Minihane mailbag. Unless no one reads the stuff, then I'll just stick to writing report cards and trying to find more ideas for top 10 lists. The choice is yours.

Report card time and for Week 1 it's hard to do anything but act like a sleazy professor in a college sports movie and hand out "A's" and "B's" without a pause.

Ten questions (and answers) as we ready for a press conference to celebrate the signing of a 38-year-old center. The last time the Celtics brought in a former All-Star center at age 38? Artis Gilmore in 1988. Let's hope this goes a little better. Johnny Kelley was faster at mile 24 in the 1992 Boston Marathon.

Ready? Want to play the "how can we catch the Rays or Yankees" game? OK, here goes. If the Tampa Bay Rays play .500 ball for the rest of the year, the Red Sox would have to go 33-20 to make the playoffs.
