Paul Gaustad Has Given Me Unrealistic Expectations About Men

This post is going to be nothing more than the first of many Goose-themed love-fests I have planned for the summer. So if you, by some chance, are crazy enough to believe that Goose is not God's gift to women everywhere, you may want to turn away.

There are about 10 million things I love about every interview Goose does, and his latest one with 97 Rock is no exception. He just seems so genuine and relaxed with the media. I especially loved how he was getting pestered for not having a girlfriend (which is simply because we have not met yet - haha), to which he replied that he gets the same thing from Mama Goose.

I also loved how he was trying to convince us that Pommer is tougher than he looks. I wonder if Jason has a secret angry side when Goose doesn't let him have the remote on the road. When he said that Jason was complaining that no one understands how tough he really is, I was hit with an image of Goose consoling a whimpering Pommer: "It's ok, I know you can be tough when you want to be. Do you want me to come over with sugar cookies to make you feel better? I'll put M&Ms in them - I know that's your favorite."

Because that's the kind of guy Goose is, baking cookies for his BFF seems second nature. I think Goose's full name is Paul Charity Gaustad. I've been reading on everyone's blogs that Goose chaired the Camp Good Days gala over the weekend while Danny Briere made a guest appearance. Things like this make me smile. To see two guys who are obviously such good people in addition to being such good hockey players makes me feel proud to say that they play (or played) for us. Especially with Goose, it makes me feel even prouder to wear his jersey, proud that I picked a pretty great favorite player.

Thanks to Buffalo.com for the great pictures of the event:

Lindy Ruff is all kinds of awesome


It's things like this that are the reason I can't boo Danny Briere

Say it with me: "Awwwww...."

Between the tux and the little girl, I think my heart exploded from the cuteness

So, Darcy, about that 25-year contract for Mr. Paul Charity Gaustad? I think it would make that little girl (and this not so little one) very happy.

Clearly, my Sabre Sister!

I mean, it's like he's waiting for me to walk into his life with my recycling bin and Dr. Seuss books!

OMG I can't breathe from the cuteness of Goose talking to those little girls. OMG. CAN'T BREATHE. SO UNFLIPPINBELIEVABLY ADORABLE.

Jennifer said...

I think that I love Goose even more (if that is possible). He is so adorable and seems great with kids. He is most definitely perfection in the form of a man, an incredibly, seriously HOT man!

I love how Gaustad is paying such special attention to the kids. I also noticed how he appears to be wearing a beaded bracelet on his wrist in one of the photos. I wonder if its the bracelet that that little girl made for him and led to the whole team wearing them? If it is, then mega awwww.

I KNOW!! When I first saw those pictures, I thought I was going to need CPR from the adorableness. Even my mom was like "Oh, he's just too cute!" (a comment she usually reserves for Pommer).

Jennifer said...

He just makes me want to adopt a puppy with him or something. He would never leave me if we had a puppy together, right?!?!?!?

Katie said...

This is my life's calling - to spread the Goose-love to women everywhere.

He is so adorable and seems great with kids.

He really does! I think he'll be a great father (to our children) someday. =P

I never even noticed the bracelet - thanks, Amy! If it is that bracelet, then he really can not get any more perfect. That story nearly made me cry - it was so sad but so sweet.

Katie said...

Of course not! You and Goose and your puppy would live happily ever after (while sharing him with me every once and a while, right? - haha).

Jennifer said...

I will certainly share with you Katie. There is plenty of Goose to satisfy both of us. But I get to keep the puppy!

Anne said...

I have to say, your post title inspired to me to make a facebook bumper sticker bearing the same title. Hahaha.

Katie said...

Thanks for sharing Jennifer, and, of course, you can totally keep the puppy!

Anne, that pretty much made my day! haha. Now I just have to find it and put it on my facebook!

Mary said...

Goose and that little girl equals OMGAHADORABLE. I think I'm going to die because of too much love.

Katie said...

I think I'm going to die because of too much love.

Maybe Goose can give you CPR, Mary! He seems to be perfect at everything else!

Jennifer said...

He IS perfect at everything!
