    I can't imagine what would cause someone with a successful radio gig to think about killing themselves. Has that ever happened?

    Boston sports radio host Kirk Minihane tweeted today that he checked into the emergency room at Winchester Hospital in Massachusetts last Thursday with suicidal thoughts. He said he was transferred to McLean, a hospital that specializes in providing mental health care, and was released earlier this week. Minihane said he will be on the radio tomorrow to “talk about it” and that he was feeling nervous but not ashamed.

    Pretending to be suicidal after a rash of celebrity suicides seems fake. If true he should be seeking help not advertising it on the radio.

    Kirk Minihane grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. His father was a millionaire.
    His parents both died of cancer a year ago. Kurt and his brothers inherited millions. Kurt acts crazy on the radio because if he gets fired, he is already set for life.

    I'd probably blow my brains out if I were forced to talk about the Celtics every day.

    I feel his pain.
