Lauren Cosgrove, T.J. Oshie's Girlfriend, Could Become A Star Herself After the Olympics


T.J. Oshie vaulted himself into “American hero”status with his game-winning goal for Team USA in the shootout vs. Russia on Saturday. As America begins to learn about the St. Louis Blues star, his girlfriend Lauren Cosgrove might soon find herself in the spotlight, too.

Cosgrove, who is pregnant and expecting the couple’s first child in April, isn’t in Sochi for the Olympics. Expect her popularity to rise in turn with her now-famous boyfriend. Actually, given how the Internet works, she’ll probably surpass him.

(Note to self: if I ever get the flux capacitor working, go back to 1985 and tell five-year-old me to start playing hockey.) [H/T @Mathew17Willis]
