Patrick Kane celebrated Cinco de Mayo exactly as you’d expect Patrick Kane to celebrate Cinco de Mayo

May 7, 2012, 3:41 PM EDT

Courtesy Terez Owens — “the world’s most popular sports gossip site” — comes pictures of Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane partaking in some Cinco de Mayo celebrations at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

(Because if anything says Cinco de Mayo, it’s the University of Wisconsin.)



From the Terez Owens “tipster” comes this:

“I go to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and we had our biggest party of the spring this weekend called ‘Mifflin.’ Patrick Kane was here and was the drunkest person in Madison all day Saturday.

“Here is a pic of him passed out at our best bar, the Kollege Klub.”


In a related story, Kane declined to suit up for Team USA at the World Hockey Championships because he didn’t want to risk a relapse setback in his offseason training.

“I’m healthy right now,” Kane told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I’m excited about that. I don’t really want to risk that, especially into next season. I saw the difference it could make, being healthy or not being healthy [in the summer].”


Update: Google translate says the shirt reads “five by two is equal to ten” (confirmed by the math equation below.) It could also be read as “two fives equals a 10” — which I’ll let you mull over in the comments section.

Update 2: From the sharp eyes at Deadspin, there appears to be a picture of Kane’s infamous limo pic on the back of his shirt.

Never change, Kaner. Never change.

    I guarantee those two chicks got ‘high sticked’ later.

      In a row????

      • michiganhockey11 - May 7, 2012 at 4:27 PM

        I knew people would start getting the Clerks reference there….

    • justjokinen1 - May 7, 2012 at 4:01 PM

      Judging by the last pic I don’t think Kane was high sticking anything.

    • promakos - May 7, 2012 at 4:31 PM

      Of course, b/c if you pose for a pic w/ a famous hockey player (or hell, any guy), you’re automatically going to have sex w/ him. I forgot that’s how it works. Yahoo for misogyny!

      • cweez2 - May 7, 2012 at 4:49 PM

        That’s about right, Ms. Allred.

      • imleftcoast - May 7, 2012 at 5:53 PM

        A couple of fives aren’t going to have sex with Patrick Kane. I bet he asks if he can call the blond “Peggy.”

  2. scoops1 - May 7, 2012 at 3:48 PM

    Kane = lightweight champion of the world

  3. cweez2 - May 7, 2012 at 3:49 PM

    Tell me, how you score from ze left side?

    • bagjr387 - May 7, 2012 at 4:40 PM

      thats f’in funny

  4. jballzz2001 - May 7, 2012 at 3:51 PM

    What a piss tank! Love it

  5. rockthered1286 - May 7, 2012 at 3:57 PM

    Who invited a 12 y/o kid to UW? Oh wait it’s just Kane.

  6. kate4565 - May 7, 2012 at 4:05 PM

    I think the picture on the back of his shirt is this photo:

  7. cmdrsmooth - May 7, 2012 at 4:13 PM

    Good for him. He’s old enough to make his own decisions. Athletes are in a different world, they better think twice about what they do in public, as every person desperate for their own 15 secs of fame will snap pics and videos.

  8. kitshky - May 7, 2012 at 4:16 PM

    Ok so I suppose you could be upset he’s not representing his country but … if you’re offended by this there’s a 99% chance we’ll never be friends.

    • justjokinen1 - May 7, 2012 at 4:33 PM

      So you’re telling me there’s a chance?

      • kitshky - May 7, 2012 at 5:14 PM

        Uhhh, with a name like “justjokinen” …


  9. nmurray6783 - May 7, 2012 at 4:22 PM

    That shirts perfect because those girls are definitely 2 5s.

    • michiganhockey11 - May 7, 2012 at 4:45 PM

      I would say maybe a combined score of 12-14. You gotta undestand. In the midwest, those girls are what west coast would probably say 4 or 5’s. Different standards out here (less saline/silicone).

  10. michiganhockey11 - May 7, 2012 at 4:24 PM

    Dude has a serious drinking problem though. In all seriousness, it wasn’t too long ago when he punched a cabbie in Buffalo over being 65 cents short on his cab fare. He was drunk and 20 years old. Nice to see some things don’t change.

    • justjokinen1 - May 7, 2012 at 4:29 PM

      That or he’s a punk kid with an infinite supply of money.

      • michiganhockey11 - May 7, 2012 at 4:42 PM

        If I was passed out at a bar with friends, I know that I’d have all kinds of things drawn on my face with a sharpie. He should be more careful. I expect my buddies to do that at least.

      • paledevil - May 8, 2012 at 2:50 PM

        Makes America awesome!

    • bagjr387 - May 7, 2012 at 4:39 PM

      i dont think he has a drinking problem…. i think he’s got it all figured out.

  11. capsfan19 - May 7, 2012 at 4:37 PM

    I bet quennville could drink more

  12. bagjr387 - May 7, 2012 at 4:38 PM

    you can take him out of south buffalo, but you cant take the south buffalo out of him.
    5X2=10 means sleep with 5 girls rated 2 out of 10 and it equals a 10.

    • michiganhockey11 - May 7, 2012 at 4:46 PM

      Be that as it may, but those girls def aren’t 2’s.

      • bagjr387 - May 7, 2012 at 9:46 PM

        its an old george carlin joke…”never f*&^ed a 10, but one night i f*&^ed 5 2’s, and i think that oughtta count”

  13. hiltonandastoria - May 7, 2012 at 4:39 PM

    LOL @ Cinco De Mayo

    Not even celebrated in 95% of Mexico

    • comeonnowguys - May 8, 2012 at 10:05 AM

      It’s the new St. Patrick’s Day. Too many Plastic Paddies are making it crowded.

  14. lonespeed - May 7, 2012 at 4:46 PM

    When I was his age I would have been doing the same. Good for him. He’ll grow up over time. There is nothing wrong with having fun.

    When did the U.S. become the unfun zone? Not like you see him behind the wheel of a car or smoking dope. Looks like good clean fun, and anyone being critical is likely jealous they either weren’t there or when they had a chance to be there in their younger years, they failed to capitalize on their own moment.

    • ThatGuy - May 7, 2012 at 5:05 PM

      Meh, I don’t think its the no fun zone. There are like two comments out of 30 that suggest there is anything wrong with that. Who hasn’t passed out at a bar when they were 22? Hell I was in college than and barely remember being 22.

    • travishenryskid - May 7, 2012 at 10:03 PM

      I only give you a thumbs down for putting smoking dope in same catagory as driving drunk.

      “The people of Madison specifically determine that the regulations herein contained concerning marijuana and cannabis are necessary to serve the ethical purpose of providing just and equitable legal treatment of the citizens of this community and to preserve the respect of such citizens for law, its process, and its administration. possession is not a crime and is not subject to forfeiture”

      good for them!!! Now people cannot use casual misdemeanors as a way to encite predjudices .

  15. buffalomafia - May 7, 2012 at 4:52 PM

    For being a hockey player he is always with fat chowhound women instead of hot women?

    What gives there?

  16. doopdoop10 - May 7, 2012 at 5:32 PM

    Awesome just awesome

  17. boxwatcher - May 7, 2012 at 5:36 PM

    I don’t remember seeing that on NHL 36….

  18. smgraff4 - May 7, 2012 at 5:44 PM

    And we ripped Ovechkin and Semin for a boating holiday in the Black Sea (and Ovechkin again for his vacation to Florida with some close friends of his during the All-Star Game). Kane parties harder than both Alexes combined (in their partying heyday).

    Like it or not, we don’t know of any Tim Tebows or Jeremy Lins in the NHL (or in top-level pro ice hockey in general).

  19. donfocker89 - May 7, 2012 at 6:09 PM

    Looks like Pat Kane got “White-boy Wasted.”

  20. chiadam - May 7, 2012 at 6:28 PM

    Pics of Kane wasted stopped being news about a week after he got drafted. Pick a weekend, come to Chicago, and hit a few bars after 2 AM. There’s a 50% you’ll see Patrick Kane. And so what? He’s 22 and a multimillionaire.

  21. malkinrulez - May 7, 2012 at 6:30 PM

    I love it, season is over time to unwind, by the way the event was “miflin street block party”,madison tradition for years! If u attend u end like Patrick in the last picture. Good times had by all, although very few remember the details!

  22. geo91 - May 7, 2012 at 10:44 PM

    I feel like he might have porked Paulina Gretzky at this party

  23. dawglb - May 7, 2012 at 11:00 PM

    The guy is a complete tool. I don’t need an American hockey hero THAT bad, that I have to root for him. He is a disrespectful, immature, spoiled douche. There are 20 other current US players that I would rather have on my team.
