How's this for a reach?
The Boston Herald's gossip page Track Girls are speculating that love may be in the air for two Boston athletes, Tyler Seguin and Aly Raisman,... when the two have never actually met one another. Coming off Raisman's incredible performance in the London Olympics it comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone that dating rumors have started following the 18 year old as she returns to Massachussetts.
In fairness, the Herald does acknowledge that this is heavy speculation based on a couple back and forth Tweets, which more or less consisted of
"Congrats on the Gold,"
"Thanks, good luck this season."
With that, love is born, Seguin has been asked at various public appearances if the two have any plans to meet up (they don't). Raisman has put the ball in Seguin's court answering only that the two would get together, "if he wants to meet me," when asked if the there were any plans in the works.
In fairness, the Herald does have self awareness when they say, "if media matchmakers have their way, the two will be the new hot couple for the fall!" We will find out if they get their way in the coming weeks as the B's training camp opens September 21. If there's anything here, we'll definitely know more about it then.Is Aly Raisman dating Tyler Seguin?,
