  • That's all right.

  • 42 year old David Air is used to clean the ice during the big hockey games.

  • Driving the Zamboni machine.

  • You feel like you have to pinch yourself this morning.

  • Yeah, I don't have time to pinch myself, but you feel like it's not really.

  • But on Saturday, like a Hollywood movie, Airs was told to suit up and play goalie for the Carolina Hurricanes.

  • It happened after both the team's goalie and backup goalie were injured during the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on the ice, Ares gave up two goals on the 1st 2 shots.

  • Then his nerves settled and he made eight straight saves.

  • His victorious teammates mobbed him after the game, and he got a standing ovation in the locker room.

  • He was showered with cheers.

  • We caught up with him today at the NHL store in Manhattan.

  • I want to point something out first.

  • They're already selling his jersey.

  • It's fantastic.

  • It's so cool.

  • I was in complete disbelief.

  • His wife, Sarah, watched from the stands.

  • Oh, it's undescribable.

  • It was every single emotion I had for Ares.

  • It was all a dream come true, Theo.

That's all right.
