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.

After a week away, the mailbag returns with something for everyone.

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 - 8:33pm
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?
Kirk Minihane

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
11/18/2009 - 9:47pm
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 - 3:19am
Did that just happen? No, really. Did it?
Kirk Minihane
11/12/2009 - 8:01am
Be warned: If you are a fan of Dan Dierdorf, Rajon Rondo, Jack Morris or Jim Corsi, this might not be

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.

We are doing our best to shake the bye week blues here at the mailbag.

You’ll get a bye week mailbag and like it.

Here are the two things I think we absolutely know for sure after watching the Patriots beat Iron Mike Sharpe and S.D. Jones over the last two weeks.
Kirk Minihane

Pats and Pats and Pats this week in the mailbag. No shock, with the Sox done and the Celtics not yet ready for our full attention.
Kirk Minihane
10/18/2009 - 10:55pm
I know it's almost impossible to comprehend after what we just watched, but sometime in the future the Patriots will be terrible. And I’m not talking 7-9 terrible, either, the kind of season where if a few breaks go your way you win 10 games.
