Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory: My favorite Penguins memory was when the Penguins played Buffalo in the Winter Classic. Walking down the road to the stadium with the streets lined with Buffalo fans haggling me while I wore my Lemieux jersey. Experiencing the atmosphere and hype of the game as we walked to our seats was just awesome! Then the game starts and it was just surreal sitting there. It was a tight close game the whole way though, then Sidney Crosby wins it in the shootout, and I can remember jumping for joy, surrounded by Buffalo fans!
Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?: Evgeni Malkin
On a game day I usually...: Being superstitious, I have multiple Penguins jerseys and hats. That said, I wear the same hat I wore since their last win, I don't change hats until they lose, same goes for the jersey. Once lunch time rolls around I get a tasty burrito and read the Pens hockey blog on Hockeybuzz.com update my fantasy teams. After work I meet the fiance out for dinner, then drive down to the game and attempt to be there before the warm-up skate. I then cheer on the Pens to a glorious victory!
