I’m not exactly expecting you to know who Patrick Kane is because the last hockey players you probably followed included Gretzky and Messier. I’m not too far off. But Patrick Kane is a 19-year-old winger who was drafted first overall by the Blackhawks last year. He’s already off to a fantastic start, and he came on The Monty Show on Sporting News Radio to celebrate being named SN NHL Rookie of the Year. Naturally Monty got right down to important hockey business:
You’ve played in a lot of different countries in this world … who’s got the best chicks?
Russia. If you go there, you’ll see the hottest chicks you’ll ever see. It’s not a great area but the girls down there, they’re pretty good.
You’ve played in Canada … how are Canadian ladies?
They’re pretty good. You know it’s funny — they know if you’re a hockey player. It’s pretty good. You don’t really have to initiate much out there, they’ll just come up and talk to you out there so it’s pretty cool.
What about the Euro girls? What about the Swedes and the Fins?
Yeah, the Swedes — they’re all blondes out there. If you like that, I’d head out there too, because they have some pretty good looking ones. I didn’t see too many in Finland that I really liked but I would probably have to say Sweden and Russia were the best for the European countries.
Anyone care to take a trip up to Canada with me? We’ll pass ourselves off as hot shot prospects from Duluth or something. The best part is that this kid’s only 19, so you know he’s really having some fun. Any wonder why athletes play worse on the road?
