Pittsburgh Penguins Fan Blog: For the Fans, by the Fans

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I was lucky enough to be born into a family that loves hockey above all other sports. I always enjoyed watching but after attending my first game at 11, I was absolutely hooked. You couldn't keep me away from the game. I actually moved to Toronto to pursue my interest in working for a hockey club. I couldn't be more thankful to the Penguins organization for helping me find what I want to do with the rest of my life and more importantly, for all of the people I have met through hockey.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Mario Lemieux

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
I have so many of them...attending the Olympics, World Championships, games in Sweden, Winter Classics, away games and just doing anything to support the Pittsburgh Penguins and their players. I can definitely say that 2009 was the best year of my life and I owe that to the team. Winning the Stanley Cup made me closer with my friends and family than I could ever imagine. We went to Detroit, Stanley Cup parties and of course the parade. The whole summer was just so eventful and I could not have been happier.

On game day I usually...
On game day here in Toronto, I usually throw on a jersey and watch from the comfort of my home. If it is a really hyped up game, I head to Real Sports or Gretzky's. I am especially excited if the Pens are in Toronto, then I go to the ACC and show my support! No matter what, I am glued to Twitter to read everyone's opinions on the game.

Congratulations, Hilary!
