Abby - Evan City, PA

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?:
Been a fan since I was 9. It was a family event to gather round and watch hockey games especially during the playoffs.

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory:
  My cousin and I were 11 and we had gone to our grandparents camp where there was no television reception. We listened to the Pens defeat the Stars to win the cup on a little radio complete with aluminum foil wrapped around the antenna so we could Mike Lange more clearly.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?:
Ulf Samuelsson

On a game day I usually...:
I plan out first of all which player's shirt I am going to wear. (I usually go with sporting my Cooke jersey!) If I am going to the game I have a ritual I go through. Park in the same spot go through the same entrance (Trib Total Media) and buy my beer from the same guy (TC in front of section 230). I have to get to the game early enough so that I can see warmups. If I am at home I have to turn the sound down on the tv (especially if its Mike Milbury) and make sure my radio is synced to my tv so that I can listen to Mike Lange.
