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.

“It’s not right. I think it's all of our jobs to rectify this travesty.” — Bill Walton on Dennis Johnson not being elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006

One man's Super Bowl diary ... 6:00 p.m (EST): I’m a massive fan of Jay-Z and Rihanna’s solo work. To get them together on a Super Bowl pregame show takes care of another Bucket List wish for me.

Why is this going to be tough column for me to write? Let us count the ways … 1. I’m the guy that thought the Colts should have taken Ryan Leaf over him.

Feeling better more than a week later? Headaches nearly gone? No more ringing in the ears? How about the double vision?

What does Mark McGwire’s apology do for Ernie Banks?

As you watched Tom Brady run off the field after his touchdown pass to Randy Moss that gave the Patriots a 14-10 lead with 2:42 left in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLII, you were witnessing a man at the absolute peak of his greatness.

Is it possible that the tears you saw coming from Wes Welker last Sunday were not the result of the pain he was suffering from tearing both the ACL and MCL in his knee just minutes before?
Kirk Minihane
01/03/2010 - 9:33pm
I know you don’t want to believe this, but Julian Edelman is not Wes Welker.

Is there anything people need more right now than a "Year in Review" column?

Sometimes a little perspective is needed. We can get too close sometimes.

In December of 1982 I watched a man dressed as Santa Claus vomit all over the counter of a Papa Gino's in the Billerica Mall. Since then it's been kind of tough to wrap my arms around Christmas.

Tons of feedback (both in comments and e-mail) off the Bill Belichick column I wrote on Monday. I was surprised that most were in my camp (which is basically this: The guy is still a great coach having a rough year) or at least didn't completely disagree with what I wrote.

"We've got to coach better. Play better. Just have to do a better job." -- Bill Belichick after the Patriots' 22-21 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

After a week off for the holiday, the mailbag returns in fine fashion. Two things I can promise here at the 'bag: lots of Patriots talk and almost no sexting. The Monday Night disaster is Topic A this week, and it seems that most of the folks are ready to call it a season.
Kirk Minihane

For about an hour or so Monday night, I was having flashbacks to the 2001 season. Must’ve been a Superdome thing, I figured. Or seeing Jon Gruden, though this time there was no visor or snow. But then the game started and I still couldn’t shake it.
Kirk Minihane

First, let us start with praise for the 2006 Patriots. No, really.
Kirk Minihane

Look, it’s all fourth-and-2 here this week. And I suspect that some may view that as more of a warning than an invitation.
Kirk Minihane
11/16/2009 - 4:19am
Did that just happen? No, really. Did it?

Here’s what Sunday’s 27-17 win over the Dolphins means for the Patriots. It’s OK to take a look at the big picture again. First time since the season started when that feels safe, I know. But take a look.
