In the silly story of the day, Bruins star Tyler Seguin, who played for the Swiss team EHC Biel during the NHL lockout, responded Wednesday to a report in a Swiss tabloid newspaper claiming that the 20-year-old left a major mess behind in his rented apartment.
As reported by Deadspin, the newspaper Blick spoke with the cleaning company hired to tidy up Seguin's apartment, and it revealed that there were soda bottles, rotten bananas and other garbage strewn about, and that it took a full day to clean up the mess. The paper also claimed Seguin does not know how to use appliances, indicating that he tried to wash his clothes in the dryer and he bought plastic tableware when he ran out of clean plates because he could not operate a dishwasher.
"You could tell it was the first time a young, single man had an apartment," said Marc Lupold, managing director of the cleaning company.
Responded Seguin via Twitter: All this house stuff is a bunch of crap. I do my laundry by myself quite often :) maybe I've called my mom twice about it #whohasnt.
