Bill Burr's Podcast: He just wanted to see Phil Kessel lift the Stanley Cup

Remember how you felt when the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup? Pretty awesome, right? Right. Definitely.

It was an event a ton of people were watching. Any time the Stanley Cup might make an appearance out on the ice, hockey fans are going to tune in - including comedian Bill Burr, in his podcast filled with very NSFW language.

Burr is from Massachusetts, so of course he's a Boston Bruins fan, but he harbors no real ill will towards the Penguins for their success. In fact, he was pretty excited about the Pens' win - because of former Bruin Phil Kessel.

Everybody loves Kessel. EVERYBODY.

(Heads up: there is quite a fair amount of NSFW language in the above audio.)

Burr did start off his June 13 podcast - aka one day after the Penguins won the Cup - by watching it all come to an end, and the celebration surrounding it. And okay, he really doesn't recognize any Penguins at all - and was apparently completely unaware Trevor Daley had a broken ankle - but it's a lot of fun to listen to just how badly he wanted to see Kessel lift the Cup.

"You gotta give it to Phil! He's (expletive) adorable!" is such a good line. Accurate, too!
