Life’s pretty good for Tyler Seguin these days. He’s a good-looking 20 years old, just coming off a season of leading the Boston Bruins in points, doing okay financially and already has a Stanley Cup on his resume. Oh, and also, he’s single, and from a few pictures and stories we’ve seen, ready to mingle.
The Lowell Spinners are a minor league baseball team in Mass, and have decided to capitalize on his desirability.
Introducing “Speed dating with Tyler Seguin.”
While ardent Bruins fans will probably want to know what Seguin’s involvement will be in the power play next season, there will also undoubtedly be star-struck female sports fans ready to swoon over one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.
Fans will have the opportunity throughout the evening to win a chance to spend time with the B’s All-Star during the game, and each winner will be allowed to bring their family to spend five minutes with Seguin in a private suite at the ballpark in Lowell.
The five-minute “dating session” will allow fans to ask Seguin questions, take photos, get autographs, enjoy the game and – according to the Spinners release – “who knows, even score a phone number.”
Who knows? Perhaps some intrepid Seguin fanatic can even get to the bottom of why the former No. 2 overall pick was late to the team breakfast meeting in Winnipeg last season, or try on Seguin’s Stanley Cup championship ring for size.
Heyyy, what are you implying there, Joe?
….OHHhhhh, I follow.
Seriously though, it’s kind of a neat idea, and should bring out a good number of Bruins fans to the ball game. Good for Seguin for getting involved.
However, what I don’t approve of, is this:
There won’t be any rose ceremony, which should be a disappointment to Seguin as a big fan of “The Bachelor” television show.
And female humans still like this guy? I think I’ve lost touch with the world.
