On the HNIC game, gets first star of the game and interviewed on HNIC. Unreal. He works for the Leafs organization and is sometimes the third practice goalie for them. There'll be some chirping.

What party?

*sniff* The Canes T-shirt with his name on it with the proceeds going to a Kidney foundation...gave me all the feels.

Not really a wearing/purchasing sports gear person (my love for the team is on the inside)but today might be the day. Well done David. =)

I turned on the game at the start of the 3rd. Awesome!!!

Brian Burke was his usual bad-tempered self after the game, complaining that it was a disgrace that a 42-year-old Zamboni driver was the EBG. He went on to demand that the league be certain that every city have an EBG that has a f***ing blue-ribbon pedigree. Hey, Brian, this is third . . . THE THIRD . . . time that an EBG found his way into a league game.

Turns out the guy had a kidney transplant some years back. Also, he'll be going to Raleigh for a "David Ayres Day" celebration. What a story.
