Congratulations, Amanda Kessel. Not only are you a ridiculously talented hockey player, you just won the hockey Twitter-verse on Tuesday night.
After the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders, Kessel decided to respond to a clearly knowledgeable and rational Pens fan on Twitter who had some things to say about HER play against the Isles.
When idiots like this come at players of Amanda’s ilk, we would have been totally fine with her responding with, “DON’T YOU KNOW WHO THE F— I AM?”
Kessel, sister of Pittsburgh Penguins forward, Phil Kessel, is one of the best hockey players to ever hit the ice. Period. She just wrapped the regular season of her senior year at Minnesota and she has 242 points in 124 games played. That’s not including all the international success she’s had as a member of Team USA.
Let this be a lesson to all you young Twitter trolls out there. If you’re going to replace a player’s Twitter handle with that of his sister’s as an “insult”, might want to check who his sister is first.
OR – and here is a novel idea – DON’T.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, EVERYONE!
