Patrick Kane Embraces Chicago's Proud Tradition Of Failure

Patrick Kane, drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks as the first overall pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, threw out the first pitch as the Chicago Cubs faced the Colorado Rockies at Wrigley Field last night. The Cubs blew a five run lead in the top of the ninth inning but barely managed to rally in the bottom and win by one run. They still remain three games under .500 with a record of 36-39.

If wearing a Cubs jersey wasn’t bad enough (disclaimer: I like the Cubs), Kane will be forced to represent another once-proud Chicago sports franchise now reduced to chronic mediocrity by misguided management, the Blackhawks, for at least the first few years of his NHL career. At least the food there is good.

Wow, he best put on some weight before hitting the NHL or he'll get creamed.

One of the biggest complaints about him was his lack of size. But he's only 18 and he won't be playing in the NHL for at least a couple of years.

Unless the Blackhawks want to see him on the injured list, that is.

And now that it's 2017, this whole post is a welcome outdated joke.
