How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan? I have been a fan since I was born in 1989. I remember watching games in the 95-96 playoffs. I remember loving Nedved's goal in the 4th OT and then betting my uncle $2 that we would crush the Florida Panthers (he didn't take my money). Since I've been able to drive, I've gone down to student rush games every year. We once waited for hours in 13 degree weather to get tickets to the Caps-Pens game in the 07-08 season when Malkin and Ovie each had 2 goals and Ovie had the winner. Such a good game.
Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)? Mario Lemieux
Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite Penguins memory was going to the game on Jan. 3, 2008. I made a Crosby-Malkin '08 sign and a lot of my friends saw me on TV that game! Jarko and Malone and great fights and I got to witness Malkin's first ever hatty. It was the last game that I got to go to with one of my best friends before he recently passed away, so I'll remember that game for the rest of my life.
On game day I usually...
Try not to count down the seconds. Sometimes I'll wear my Crosby or Lemieux jersey over top my dress clothes. I then proceed to yell, scream and cheer in front of the net, and sometimes shed a tear (okay, that was only when we won the Cup in '09)!
