Patrick Kane And The Stanley Cup Were Wastin’ Away Again In Margaritaville

Hoo boy, talk about it packing a lot of excitement into a short period of time. Patrick Kane’s incredibly epic time with the Stanley Cup included hoisting the coveted trophy at Niagara Falls and getting stuck on a ladder 70 feet in the air in Buffalo on Friday. So, when Saturday came, Kane and the Cup needed some down time to just chill. And what better place to maxin’ and relaxin’ than a Jimmy Buffett concert?

That’s right, Patrick Kane is apparently a Jimmy Buffett fan. Yep, a full-fledged Parrothead. You know, nothing surprises me about this Kane fella anymore.

Kane joined Buffett onstage during the crooner’s concert at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois. Via the Chicago Tribune:

Jimmy Buffett doesn’t ever really need a reason to celebrate. But Saturday at a packed Toyota Park, he got a big one in the person of Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane, who emerged minutes into the concert with the Stanley Cup in hand. Wearing a Hawaiian shirt, the grinning Kane grabbed a tambourine as Buffett performed “Boat Drinks” and footage of the winger’s championship-winning goal aired on projection screens. Hockey, 90-degree temperatures and dozens of bouncing beach balls: Why not? Anything goes with Buffett, just as long as it doesn’t involve work.

What a wild ride it has been for Patrick Kane and Lord Stanley’s Cup. Forget about going back into that stuffy case, the Cup probably needs a tropical island vacation to decompress after the events of the past couple of days.
