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.

Report Card time and it's going to get ugly after last week's written lap dance.

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.

I've always been in the Randy Moss camp ever since he joined the Patriots in 2007.

Season finale of "Hard Knocks" and HBO is promising a twist ending. As a TV junkie I've been trying to figure out what it is. My best guess?

One man's "Hard Knocks" diary, admittedly written while wondering if the Celtics-Heat rivalry can get any better after the Delonte addition. The only the way the Heat can respond is by signing Brandon Spikes.

When the obituary of the 2010 Red Sox season is written -- and we are getting really close to putting it in ink -- you'll hear plenty about injuries.

One man's "Hard Knocks" diary while wondering what Tom Brady does watch from 10-11 on Wednesday nights. I'm guessing either "Teen Mom" or "Alan Alda's Scientific American Frontiers." To the diary we go ...

Almost ready for a Week 2 "Hard Knocks" diary?  Just one thing before we can get started. (Pause as we wait for a blessing from Saint Tony Dungy. Got it. Thanks, coach. We'll keep it no worse than PG-13 here.) Here we go ...

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.

For those bemoaning the idea that Shaquille O'Neal will soon be a member of the Boston Celtics, let me say first that I understand the concern.

Be warned: This is a question born in the world of dramatic overreaction within the internet community. But here goes. Is Jonathan Papelbon going to be the Red Sox closer for the rest of the season?

Reggie Lewis died 17 years ago Tuesday. Hard to believe that he would be 44 years old now, probably be six or seven years out of the league. Maybe he'd be a coach, maybe he'd be sitting next to Mike and Tommy, maybe he would have moved into the front office. Who knows?
