Amanda Kessel has settled the debate: Does her brother Phil love hot dogs?
In a Twitter Q&A, a curious fan asked the two-time Olympic medalist whether or not her brother Phil Kessel – a star winger for the Pittsburgh Penguins – actually love hot dogs.

The answer? Occasionally on the golf course, but not really.
It’s heartbreaking, yet unsurprising news.
Phil’s rumored hot dog admiration started when hot take Toronto Sun columnist Steve Simmons penned a column saying a hot dog vendor in Toronto lost his most reliable customer when Kessel was traded to Pittsburgh. The story was proved as likely fake. But it stuck with Kessel, who even trolled the living shit out of Simmons after he won the Stanley Cup.
