How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
At age 3, my dad was an usher at Civic Arena. He would sit me in his section during the games. I would stand at the glass. One game Les Binkley took me out and skated around with me on his shoulder.
Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
I have so many. Stanley Cup playoffs 90-90, 2 friends and I would travel to the airport after every away game against New Jersey. I don't remember which game it was, but there was a bad thunder storm delaying the team. New Jersey came through the terminal first (they must of won) because they were telling us that Pens were finished and we needed to cheer for them. Pens were next, different players stopped to sign autographs and take pictures. Bryan Trottier stopped and talked to us. The last statement he made was for us to be safe because of the weather despite the fact that it was like 1 in the morning.
On a game day I usually...
Depending if we won or lost, I will wear the same outfit (something Penguins) after a win. After a loss, I change into a different Penguin item. If I am going to the game, we must get to CONSOL by 5:45 so I can to talk one of my friends that works there.
