The hot dog vendor who parks daily at Front and John Sts. just lost his most reliable customer.
Almost every afternoon at 2:30 p.m., often wearing a toque, Phil Kessel would wander from his neighbourhood condominium to consume his daily snack.
And now he’s gone. Just like that.

-- Steve Simmons, "Leafs were sick and tired of Phil Kessel", Toronto Sun, July 1st 2015

Steve Simmons put a hit piece out on Phil Kessel, but it's unlikely that the first anecdone in his story is true. Phil Kessel doesn't live or work near Front and John, and it's unlikely that if he wanted a hot dog every day he'd walk halfway across a major city to a specific vendor at the busiest time of day to get one there.
