Tyler Seguin, Aly Raisman being pushed to date by Boston media
Tyler Seguin and Aly Raisman are going to end up dating if the Boston media has its way. The 20-year-old Bruins center and 18-year-old Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast traded tweets over the past few weeks, and inquiring minds would like to know if they have a future.
Matters started with Raisman’s Olympic profile, which lists Seguin as her favorite Bruins player. That may have been the green light Seguin needed to initiate contact with Raisman over Twitter:
@tylerseguin92 thanks :) really excited to watch you play this season!

Alright, so things started off warmly between the two. But the flirtation continued at the urging of a few reporters.
When Raisman returned from London, a reporter asked if she planned to meet Seguin.
“Depends if he wants to meet me,” the gymnast reportedly replied.
The media push continued when a BostonBruins.com TV reporter asked Seguin about Raisman during the center’s appearance at a Lowell Spinners game:
Raisman apparently saw the video and tweeted the young Bruins player, and then received a nice response:
@tylerseguin92 thank you for the video… I loved it! :)

Can you feel the love in the air? This is so cute, though it has to be somewhat awkward to have their flirtations unfold publicly on Twitter and through the media.
Raisman is an accomplished athlete and famous, but she should be warned that there may be some competition; Seguin has dated Playboy models.
