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.

Ten thoughts from a Game 5 that gave every "The NBA is fixed" believer enough fodder to last until 2030, when Dick Bavetta will be 88 years old and working his 66th straight NBA finals. 1. This just in: The Magic are good.  And now we have a series.

Ten thoughts from a Game 4 that featured the impossible -- several Magic players actually make eye contact with Stan Van Gundy during the pregame speech. Should have known the Celtics were in trouble at that point.

With a quarter of the Red Sox' season in the books (give or take a game,) I figured it would be as good a time as any for the first report card of 2010.

OK, so Mike McGwire and Sammy Sooser didn't turn out to be men of virtue. It hurts, I understand. But at least we'll always have Jason Varitek splitting the uprights. An ionic moment such as that one will be in our hearts and minds forever.  Ah, Mumbles.

On April 18, Jon Lester allowed seven hits and seven runs in six innings to take the loss against the Rays. His record stood at 0-2 and his ERA was 8.44. When he stood in front of the assembled media after the game he did so as a pitcher at a crossroads.
