Gotta See It: Guy drives ball off Seguin’s lap

When it comes to NHL stars, Tyler Seguin is pretty much owning viral memes this summer.

Last week his self-portrait on a boat — with a few choice friends in the background — made the rounds on the Internet.

“It kinda started with a few of my buddies,” he said Thursday in Nobleton, Ont., where he was hosting The Fourth Period’s charity golf tournament. “We started doing the selfie stuff, but I kinda cut that off now.”

Later that afternoon, the Dallas Stars centre graduated from the selfie to something much more, um, risky.

When it’s your own tournament, you’re pretty much free to do do whatever you wish. But few tournament hosts would wish to lay down face-up in the tee box and allow some dude in colourful pants to drive a golf ball off their crotch. (That guy? Todd Keirstead of Golf With Attitude.)

It tickled.
