Blackhawks Wed Nov 19 2008

Kane Still Ain't Able (To Drink)

Happy Birthday, Patrick Kane. True, you're fourth in the league in points (22) and ninth in assists (14), but the reality of your 20th birthday isn't lost on you. "The 20th is not really a good birthday,"you told the Sun-Times. "You're not a teenager anymore and you can't get into a bar." Even so, we're guessing you're going to enjoy a cool one at some point this day. If one of the kids leading the Blackhawks resurgence can't have a brewski on his birthday, who can?
