Bro King Patrick Kane Once Let An Opponent Score Because He Was Busy Checking Out Taylor Swift
Patrick Kane can do no wrong in our eyes. Between getting drunk and playing One Direction, to getting drunk and singing Jimmy Buffett, to getting drunk and just being himself, Kane’s Bro King credentials are unchallenged.
But even when sober, he can still win our hearts. Case in point, this lovable anecdote about the time he let an opponent score a goal because he was looking at Taylor Swift, who was in attendance at the game. From SB Nation’s Second City Hockey, who was at a Blackhawks convention where tales were being spun:
Rookie Kane lost his guy on the backcheck, leading to a goal against. [Then coach Denis] Savard yelled at him that he must have been distracted, looking at two pretty blonde girls who were sitting behind the bench. After the game Kane was late getting to the team bus because he was talking to the same girls and got yelled at again. The next day Kane went to Savard’s office to give his defense: “You know who the two girls were? One of them was Taylor Swift.” Savard still didn’t know who Taylor Swift was and had to ask his wife.
Damn, Kaner. Nice fucking moves.
No word on what may or may not have happened next. But do you doubt Kane?
