Phil Kessel went to the Steelers game

In his honor, they won.

Yesterday, Oct. 2, was Phil Kessel’s 29th birthday. Happy belated birthday, Phil!

Yesterday, Oct. 2, was also Sunday night football, with none other than the Pittsburgh Steelers playing. They took down the Kansas City Chiefs 43-14 to improve to 3-1, right up at the top of the AFC North.

It’s just a shame they couldn’t have about doubled their score and gotten 81 up on the Chiefs. Because that’s Kessel’s number - and he was there.

With what looks like a fantastic view of the game, at that.

It’s always fun to see the Penguins embrace Pittsburgh’s other teams, and naturally that counts when it’s Kessel going to watch the Steelers. And no doubt with the end result in particular it was a fantastic night!
