How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I became a fan with the debut of Sidney Crosby. I grew up in a household that did not have a huge focus on sports, but from watching my first hockey game I was instantly hooked! I went from knowing nothing about the sport to being the person everyone calls or texts when they have questions or comments. The game is just amazing-an adrenaline rush from start to finish. It just doesn't get any better than that!

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
James Neal

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
I've had so many amazing memories it's hard to narrow it down to just one.
For Valentine's day a couple seasons ago, I bought my boyfriend lower bowl seats. The seats just so happened to be in direct line of the Johnson fight. Something you never think you will actually witness and we were right there! Plus we caught a shirt and got on the jumbotron with our Fleury sign. Definitely a day to remember! Now we have made it a ritual to sit in those SAME EXACT seats every season in February!

On game day I usually...
Never miss a game. I absolutely always have to have a Pens shirt or jersey on. By the time game time comes around, I'm a ball of energy and ready to cheer on my favorite team!!

Congratulations, Alix!
