Happy Thanksgiving! Here's another installment of our Thursday TIMEOUT series. We're happy to give you a little info and hot photos of handsome sporty hunks who've caught our attention and fueled our fantasies. This week, Canadian sexy ice hockey star, Tyler Seguin. The world of hockey is not too familiar to those of us on Oahu, but you'll fall in love with Tyler, just like we did. Today at Bacchus, we give thanks and enjoy all tequila for $5. Come on by for some football and pre- or post-dinner drinks. Enjoy!
TIMEOUT! Meet Tyler Seguin, the 24 year old Dallas Stars center.
This Canadian superstar debuted at 18 in the NHL with the Boston Bruins and hoisted the Stanley Cup 7 months later. His energy and flare was a welcome to the team of dyed-in-the-wool old-schoolers.
How does a teenager react to success and stardom? Just how you'd expect. During the next season, the NHL season was postponed due to a lock-out. Tyler and several others went to play in Europe.
The Swiss paparazzi hounded this handsome hunk. And when he left town, they reported on the state of his rental apartment:
“The parquet floor was littered with coins worth 220 francs. Coca-cola bottles, garbage and dirty linen lay scattered across the floor, while rotten bananas were left on a table. The bathroom was a shambles and the cleaning company spent a full day tidying the apartment."
In his defense, Seguin said that he was “not versed in appliances” and as a result tried to wash his clothes in the dryer. And that he also did not know how to operate the dishwasher . . . when he ran out of clean plates, glasses and cutlery, he bought plastic tableware.
To the company that was hired to clean up his mess, they were more diplomatic:
“You could tell it was the first time a young, single man had an apartment.”
He would only last a few years on the Bruins; the team couldn't control his partying. What were they expecting with an underage millionaire? The bad boy was traded to Dallas with a few other team mates and shocked the press with this tweet that day:
The line comes from the movie Full Metal Jacket, but the press, particularly the gay press, pricked up their ears and thought it was a "coming out" statement. He's not a cow, so he's queer. Right? Well he didn't really back it up - with words :-)
Seguin later apologized and explained it away as immature late night banter with his friends, adding that he often forgets that the Twitter audience is millions of people.... Hmmm...
With his youthful missteps in the public eye, yet outstanding on-ice play, it's hard not to pull for this sexy guy. In photoshoots, it's obvious that his smile and laugh are genuine and true.
Is he a guy you'd want to get naughty with? All signs point to YES. :-)
Tyler is welcome at Bacchus any day, any time. If he shows up on a Thursday, the tequila will be flowing and we'll see if he says, THANKS!
