The Wet Bandits were the classic dumb villains of Home Alone, another classic holiday movie. The two were played expertly by Joe Pesci and the lesser-known Daniel Stern, and Kevin McCallister put on a master class in giving them the business (twice).
You want to talk about two individuals (adults) who should’ve easily been able to best someone many would consider lesser, but instead got absolutely owned, and you won’t find a better example than the Wet Bandits.
Who are our Wet Bandits? I’ve got two for you, and they’re just as trashy as you might think: Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.
If you ask me what one of my favorite moments as a Nashville Predators fan is, easily in the top-5 is sweeping the Chicago Blackhawks as the eight-seed when they were the top seed in our historic Stanley Cup run in 2017.
How beautiful it was to not only beat the highly-touted Blackhawks, but absolute mop the floor with them.
How well does this fit? Home Alone takes place in Chicago (the suburbs, but still), and that’s where Kane and Toews play. For all the hype that Kane and Toews have gotten, they still haven’t gotten the best of the Kevin McCallister of hockey, our Nashville Predators .
