April 27, 2012: Fan of the Day

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory: My best memory was from 12/12/1981. Mark Johnson joined the Penguins days after receiving his Gold Medal and has always been my favorite Pens player of all time. Mark wasn't the greatest player for the Penguins, but I was so enamored by him. That night was a special event. There were 4 or 5 different Pens players participating and as you walked in the door, they gave you a slip of paper with one of their names on it and that is who you got your picture taken with. Well, it was my lucky day and I got the name I was wishing for! I cannot tell you how excited I was to be sitting in that seat at the Civic Arena next to my hero.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?:
Mark Johnson

On a game day I usually...:
Listen to Mark Madden/105.9 The X pregame. If I have tickets I always get a pizza and eat it before warmups. During warmups I always take pix of the goalie, starting lineup & anthem singer. I always take a pix of the opening face-off of each period (as well as other pictures too). Very superstitious about my game day rituals.
