“Problems” is probably the wrong word. It sounds more like he had a solid case of Notgiveafuck, a condition single males in their late teens/early 20′s (and in many cases, beyond) are prone to coming down with.
Deadspin wrote a post this morning that highlighted some of the best (translated) comments in “Blick,” the Swiss newspaper who wrote about Seguin after his departure. Most specifically, they interviewed the cleaning company that tidied Seguin’s apartment after he moved out, and headed up their post with the above photoshop of Seguin in filth.
”The parquet floor was littered with coins worth 220 francs [$238],” Blick reported.
Coca-cola bottles, garbage and dirty linen lay scattered across the floor, while rotten bananas were left on a table, the newspaper said.
The bathroom was a shambles and the cleaning company spent a full day tidying the apartment.
In December, when Seguin returned to America, the staff were met with a similar stiff challenge.
Blick said the hockey player was “not versed in appliances” and as a result tried to wash his clothes in the dryer.
Haha, yesss, that’s my favourite part.
“He also did not know how to operate the dishwasher . . . when he ran out of clean plates, glasses and cutlery, he bought plastic tableware.”
Marc Lüpold, the managing director of the cleaning company, was diplomatic about the revelations.
“You could tell it was the first time a young, single man had an apartment,” Lüpold told Blick.
I’m guessing the team found the cost of one day’s cleaning well worth the 34543 bajillion goals he scored while he was there. The dude is 20, and living on your own for the first time – or any time, really – can make slobbery tempting.
That clip is only missing Jerry’s line “That you equate eating an entire block of cheese with some sort of bachelor paradise is concerning.”
Also of Seguin note: I was unaware that after this sign showed up in Boston…
He showed up to this one in Biel (NSFW).
Also, good point, Ryan Lambert:
at least now we know #trashmantyler‘s “DON’T TEXT HER BRO” girl was his cleaning lady
