Phil Kessel spent six seasons in Toronto before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins. When he was traded Toronto Sun columnist Steve Simmons wrote a column about how Kessel had to go and claimed that Kessel ate a hot dog every day. Two years later, Kessel and the Penguins have won the last two Stanley Cups and Kessel is eating hot dogs out of the Cup.
While Kessel has been winning Cups, Simmons has spent the last two years hearing about his hot dog claim. And he has nothing more to say. He’s not even mad.
Just home from a terrific day at a wonderful golf tournament. Wrote about @PKessel81 26 months ago. Nothing more to say about him now.
