The Goose is on the Loose

by Anne

Boo Wings, Boo Flyers.

Whatever.

Ok, now that that's over with:

Ok, so post-hockey and post a MAJOR day of cleaning around my parents house and my own, I opted for the Saturday night tradition of hitting up some bars in Buffalo with some girlfriends. We went down to Elmwood, we being me, S(h)ara, our friend Allison and our friend Jenn. While at a bar, S(h)ara was attempting to mack it with the bartender, Jenn was talking to some random boys, and Allison and I were chatting over drinks when I, who was facing the wall of windows saw some REALLY cute boys walk by. Like, boys that were definitely worthy of watching them as they passed when all of a sudden I realized that one of them had a face I'd seen before. It took me, oh, .6 seconds to realize whose face it was.

Now, I've been pretty sure that Paul Gaustad has jogged by me or been 6 lines down from me at Wegman's before, but never in my life was I so sure that Goose had just walked by that window. I immediately put down my drink, whispered to Allison my suspicions and without breaking stride we peaced outside to see that he had disappeared. Were we thwarted? Hells no. There's a classy bar next door, so we decided to stop in and lo and behold, there was Goose with his boys, none of whom were Sabres. So we grabbed our stuff and Jenn and S(h)ara who had no clue where we had disappeared to and hung out for a time at the classier bar that Goose deemed worthy of his patronage. Did we talk to him? No. Did we talk to one of his buddies who was also pretty hot? Yes. Is Goose even hotter and taller in person than we could have possibly comprehended? HELLS YES.

He did not appear to be recovering from recent surgery, so I'm guessing that sports hernia surgery didn't happen this past week. Either that or he was most definitely ignoring doctor's orders by consuming alcohol. What did he drink? I have no idea but he left a good tip. Aw, good boy, Goosie!

In the bar we were in there were tons of Sabres B&W portraits up, including one of Goose, did that make him uncomfortable? I don't think so, he's probably used to it.

His boys were totally creating a Fortress of Solitude around him and there was no female interference. So, Goose was not trolling for tail last night or he would've talked to one of us. We 4 ladies are pretty varied; one of us has got to be at least close enough to his type to be worthy of some innocent flirtation if he were in the market.

It proved to me that, even if I didn't know anything about him, yes, I would still think Goose is incredibly good looking.

Was it totally awesome? OMG YES.

S(h)ara and I determined that even though I love Goose immensely, I was fully able to restrain myself, probably because he's uncomfortably attractive to the point where I wouldn't expect to talk to him because he's totally beyond my grasp, lol. However, as S(h)ara pointed out, if it were Big Bear I could not be held responsible for my actions.

I love Buffalo.

EDIT: I'm not sure how I forgot to mention this, but at one point Goose got up to go to the bathroom and on his way by bumped into S(h)ara's purse and said "excuse me". Awww, he's so polite. I think she'll have that purse bronzed.

  1. So. Incredibly. Jealous.

    Its odd that a non-married with school-age children Sabre is still in town almost three weeks after the season has ended. I'm wondering if Goose is still in Buffalo because the Sabres training staff want to keep an eye on him and the hernia?

  2. Words cannot describe how jealous of you I am, Anne!! First you become Millsie's platonic gf, and now this! Oh how I wish I was 21 and could go Sabre-stalking. And it wasn't just any Sabre you got to stalk...it was my favorite Sabre!!

    I've seen Goose in person only once, but I can vouch for the fact that he is staggeringly gorgeous. It's that whole tall, dark, handsome thing =P

    Amy, I'm hoping that maybe he's sticking around to work on that "lifetime Sabre contract" that we all know Darcy has up his sleeve so we can look at his pretty face for a LONG time!!

    I love how you guys are like a variety pack of hotness. There has to be one flavor among us you like, Paul!!I admire how you guys covered all your bases. A ++++++++

    My admiration to you for not humping his leg like a lovesick poodle, which would have been my reaction to being that close to Goose. Because I am a woman of great class and dignity.

    His boys surrounding him like sentinels kept us at bay, however, should one of them have abandoned his post, the swarm of females that would've descended would've been EPIC. Goose was just trying to hide our love from the world. He's so sly.

  5. Goose was just trying to hide our love from the world.

    See all this time I was thinking that Goose was shielding himself from the ladies because he didn't want it to look like he was cheating on me.

    Oh well, I guess I can share with you, Anne =P

  6. Well Katie, the Goose CLEARLY has enough love for multiple women. Someone that unspeakably hot HAS to. It's the least he can do for the world. He needs to have like 35children. There need to be more goslings (not Ryan) in the world. See? We can TOTALLY share.

  7. oh my gosh. I am mad jealous. I saw Goose up close and personal when he walked past me in September at the Meet the Sabres after the pre-season game thing. (I was of course waiting for Derek Roy who did not disappoint either) Mr. Gaustad is incredibly attractive. I took a stalker picture of him as he walked by and that was as much of a connection as we had.

    I think i would die if I saw him or any other Sabre at a bar. I would probably just stare. Because I don't actually *talk* to hockey players at bars, I just stare at them. They are pretty, it happens.

    I think I'm going to start chillinwith you and your peeeps. You seem to have some Sabre-magnetism going on.

    I totally did the same thing to Royzie while I was in Goose's line!

    He needs to have like 35children. There need to be more goslings (not Ryan) in the world. See? We can TOTALLY share.

    I think it would be a wondeful charitable contribution for someone as socially conscious as Goose to make as many babies as possible with quality women like us =P It would surely make the world a more beautiful place!

    So we can TOTALLY share after all...it's our civic duty!
