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

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
