When I think of Patrick Kane, I think of him being drunk at the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory parade. In a more positive light, I think of him being a hero for the Blackhawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup by scoring the winning goal. And although Kane may not be the biggest or most aggressive hockey player I’ve ever seen, (in fact he’s far from being either) I never imagined him as a fan of the Twilight series.
Apparently the 21-year-old was caught by his mother reading the final book in the series, Breaking Dawn. That’s not exactly how I envisioned Kane spending his off-season. Here’s what he had to say about his somewhat embarrassing hobby:
Ohhhh,” Kane said with a laugh after regaining his composure. “She would throw me under the bus like that. I watched the first three movies and was really interested … so I decided to read the fourth book. I kind of snuck it in there, and she walked in a couple of times with me reading the book. I tried to hide it, but it wasn’t happening.”
Well good for you, Patrick. I know a few guys who are closet Twilight lovers and unlike them, you manned up and admitted your addiction. Also, I’ve got to give him props on staying out of trouble this summer, granted you don’t consider drinking from the Stanley Cup getting into trouble. There are worse things Kane could be going than reading books about vampires. Plus, the ladies are going to love him even more now that his “sensitive” side has been revealed. All I have to say is, Kaner, finish the book and get back on the ice and win Chicago another cup. That’s an idea I could really sink my teeth into.
