Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today we look at only a handful of athletes that are going to be partying hard all day and all night long.
Patrick Kane- On the ice he's known as an NHL All-Star and Stanley Cup Champion. Off the ice he is a party animal and drinks like a fish. We all know about the party photos he took while intoxicated and he insists he doesn't have a drinking problem but if he did, today would be the one day that it would be okay. Enjoy your name day Patrick.
Miguel Cabrera- Miguel Cabrera is a great baseball player, he is a 7 time MLB All-Star and a World Series Champion. He is just as good at drinking as he is at baseball. On the night before a playoff game, Cabrera got hammered drunk with a few Chicago White Sox players. He has been arrested for a DUI and chugged whisky in front of a police officer. Today is your day Miguel, enjoy it.
Ron Artest- He is now known as Metta World Peace but his previous personality, Ron Artest was quite the wild one. He has admitted to drinking Hennessy in the locker room while his teammates would drink gatorade. No one will forget the bar fight that he had in Detroit when a fan threw a beer on his face and the whole stadium erupted into a riot. Those days are behind him now. Maybe Metta can enjoy a beer or two but anymore and we won't see World Peace.
We can't go through everyone but here are some honorable mentions: Tyler Seguin (NHL), Alex Ovechkin (NHL), George Best (Football), Lawrence Taylor (NFL), Allen Iverson (NBA).
