April 13, 2012: Fan of the Day

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Stephanie D. of Tampa, FL

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory: When I went to the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals with my dad. We flew from Tampa to Pittsburgh just to see if we could get tickets to games 4 and 5. This was my first time experiencing the city of Pittsburgh, and before I even stepped off of the plane, I knew that this city was special. That game was a fantastic bonding experience for my dad and me. Even almost three years later, we still talk about it and can remember how much fun it was to be here. Nothing compares to the experience of being in Pittsburgh with the greatest fans in sports.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?:
Picking my favorite Penguins player is like picking a favorite child: practically impossible.

On a game day I usually...:
I am a creature of habit. On game days I have to wear the exact same thing all of the time: my black Penguins Sidney Crosby jersey, along with my white playoffs towel that I received during the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals. Regardless if I go to the game or not, I always check the stats and the Pens Report for the day. I like to arrive to Pens games early, because I don't like missing the warmup skate, and I like getting to my seat early. As long as things stay in routine on game days, than everything is okay.
