Karmic payback? Phil Kessel can’t get water bottle to cooperate (GIF)

During Wednesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs star Phil Kessel experienced some difficulties getting water from a bottle into his mouth. Getting an easy “Phil Kessel has a drinking problem” zinger out of the way first, it’s important to note that it was not so much Kessel’s fault as it was a malfunctioning water bottle.

Or was it? Could this be some kind of karmic payback for how maliciously Kessel treated a Powerade bottle during the Sochi Olympics?

I’m not imparting some kind of anthropomorphic qualities to bottles containing liquid, nor am I insinuating that above that bottles somehow communicate with one another and come up with plans in order to exact revenge upon those who have wronged them. That would be ridiculous.

I am, however, suggesting that the world is a crazy place where karma plays a role and perhaps on this night, Phil Kessel got what he deserved. Which I guess is wet. That’s not really a big deal, but think about it the next time you mistreat a bottle.
