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.

    I thought I was done with Jim Rice and Dwight Evans.

I have no idea if the Patriots want Michael Vick.
Kirk Minihane

Lots and lots of Dwight Evans vs. Jim Rice here this week.  The email was probably about 70-30 pro-Dewey, which surprised me more than a little. But the Rice crowd won’t give up the ghost.

Things seemed to have changed around here. I’ll confess that as I started attacking the mailbag this week I felt a little bit like Gary Cherone taking over vocals for Van Halen. Just didn’t belong on this piece of real estate. But by the end of the week I truly believe that I was giving off a Hagar vibe. That’s progress, right?

July 4th will mark the 70th anniversary of perhaps baseball’s most famous moment.
Kirk Minihane
06/23/2009 - 9:42am
It’s okay to admit that you forgot the NBA Draft is Thursday night, or maybe didn’t know at all. This is what happens when you win 60 games and don’t have a first-round pick. If things stay the course right now the Celtics pick 58th. About the only interesting story there would be if Tyrese Rice were on the board. Not exactly gripping television.

Here comes John Smoltz.

Stuff that’s been kicking around in my head for the last few days…  
Kirk Minihane
06/02/2009 - 6:34am
Couple of things before I present the Red Sox First Two Months Report Card (terrible title I know, but better than 'A Report Card for a Little More than a Quarter of the Season but Not Yet A Third')…

So this idea was triggered by something I read in Peter King’s Tuesday edition of his Monday Morning Quarterback (usually a mailbag-type setup) on 5/19. King was describing the scene at a charity dinner for the great Paul Zimmerman.  
Kirk Minihane
05/19/2009 - 6:29am
And it was all over. He came home an American hero. He bragged to the world he'd beat the Russians. He delivered. He can now command the same money as heavyweight prizefighters. He was invited to dinner by statesmen and kings.
Kirk Minihane

I’m not sure there is anything left to be written about Manny Ramirez, so I’ll try and leave out all the stuff that you’ve seen over the past four days.

Is Paul Pierce a Hall of Famer?  
Kirk Minihane
04/27/2009 - 12:49pm
Two things about Tim Wakefield (the first one you probably won’t care much about, the second you might).

So here is Part II. Following last week's entry on the bottom half of the list of the Top 64 Sports Movies, I was surprised at some of the email reaction. The movie I was most asked about? Teen Wolf.
Kirk Minihane
03/20/2009 - 2:14am
I was going to call this the 64 Greatest Sports Movies of all time but it became pretty clear that there are nowhere near 64 great sports films. Maybe 30 or so could be argued as great (at most). A couple of things before we get started…
Kirk Minihane
03/13/2009 - 4:34pm
When Paul Pierce was at the free throw line last Friday night Mike Tirico mentioned that Pierce had been with the Celtics forever, since 1998. Eleven years in the bank.
Kirk Minihane
03/01/2009 - 8:07am
In the world of sequels the second part of this list falls somewhere between “The Substitute 2: School’s Out” and Dick Gephardt’s run for President in 2004. But we move on…
Kirk Minihane
02/27/2009 - 9:48pm
The people have spoken.

What a week in sports!

I’m sick of Jason Varitek.
Kirk Minihane
01/08/2009 - 6:32pm
Interesting year on the Hall of Fame ballot. You’ve got an all-time great (Rickey Henderson), the usual band of solid guys with good cases (Alan Trammell, Tim Raines), the pair that is inching closer to induction (Andre Dawson, Bert Blyleven) and an on the verge with one last shot (Jim Rice).
