Chillin' with ... Phil Kessel

Saturday, 11.01.2008 / 1:00 AM / Chillin'

By Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer


What's on your iPod now? "I don't have a ton of songs. I'm a country music guy. Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Garth Brooks. That's the type of music I like."


What are your favorite websites? "NHL.com, ESPN, TSN. That's about it. Mostly sports sites. That's the stuff I'm in to."


Who would play you in a movie about your life? "I don't know, anyone. That's a tough question. I don't know who would play me. I've got no one. I'm really not sure."


Do you eat in, order in or go out? "A little of both. I'm not a cook, I'll tell you that much. I do a little of both. My favorite food is probably steak and potatoes. Pasta is OK, but I wouldn't eat it everyday."


Favorite TV show? "You know what, I like CSI Miami. I'm not sure why, I just enjoy watching that one. I also like to watch The Contender, that show on ESPN with the boxing. I don't box or fight or anything, but I like the show."


Favorite movie? "I like Rounders, and the Boondock Saints. That's kind of based in Boston. It's a good movie. I do like to play cards. Once in a while we get some guys together."


What Hollywood starlette would you go out with? "Maybe Jessica Simpson, but that's a tough question. There are a lot of beautiful girls out there it's kind of hard to just pick one."


Favorite sports team of all time (excluding your team)? "I don't really have a favorite sports team of all time. I have never always just cheered for one team. I have been all over the map really. That's in all of sports. I root for some teams, but I'm all over. I'm just a fan in general. I root for the Packers, but I'm not a huge Packers fan."


Favorite sports figure of all time (excluding yourself)? "Wayne Gretzky. I grew up idolizing Gretzky, so I'll have to say him."

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
