How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I've been following the Pens since '06. I first got into hockey by going to Fresno Falcon ECHL games in Fresno, CA during undergrad. My extended family is from the Pittsburgh area and my Aunt and Uncle are season ticket holders and took me to my first game - now I'm a Pens fan for life!

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Marc-Andre Fleury/Sidney Crosby (its a tie they are both amazing!)

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite Penguins memory was when my Aunt and Uncle took me to the game vs. the Thrashers on Dec. 28th, 2010. I assumed I would be sitting with them but as we approached our seats my Uncle told me to look closer at my ticket and I realized they had gotten me a seat on the glass right behind the goal! To top it off, Sid extended his point streak to 25 games and the Pens won 6-3!

On game day I usually...
Since I live in Arizona for graduate school, I wear one of my Penguins shirts to class and then tune into the game on TV or online and cheer my Pens on!

Congratulations, Alyssa!
