The Playoff Mullet Returns



    (Published Tuesday, May 3, 2011)

    During the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup run in 2010, baby-faced Patrick Kane couldn't grow a playoff beard like the rest of his post-pubescent teammates.

    So he grew the playoff mullet as a substitute.

    Monday the mullet returned to Kane's head, complete with racing stripes.

    "It's back," Kane said after a big reveal Monday afternoon.  

    Hopefully Kane can recapture some of the playoff magic that propelled him and his teammates to glory.

    A quick glance at why opposing teams should fear the mullet:
