Phil Kessel is awesome and everybody loves him. Anybody who does not love him does not count in any way, shape, or form; they are to be ignored and shunned. Especially when it's Kessel's time with the Stanley Cup. These days are all about him, and the friends and family who have helped him get where he is.
So of course, there was cake. A very big, beautiful cake.
What an awesome #stanleycup cake! Tasted great as well. @penguins @NHL @HockeyHallFame pic.twitter.com/QeXNb6bs3h— Philip Pritchard (@keeperofthecup) July 17, 2016
And hello - Kessel Ct, with three Kessels gathered around it!

Where everybody, no doubt, had a fantastic time.
That was all in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin. Like Sidney Crosby, Kessel gets a second day with the Cup: and he decided to spread the love in his old stomping grounds of Toronto.

(Look at his bandaged wrist!)
Kessel's waited a long time to get the Cup, and now he's doing good with it. Totally worth it this year - let's do it again sometime!
