How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I have been following the Pens since I was a kid. I come from a long list of Pittsburgh sports fans...lots of tradition.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Kris Letang

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
Age 14, Game 6 of the Stanley Cup playoffs vs. Minnesota. We were on our annual Memorial Day weekend camping trip to my cottage in Brockway, PA. No TV reception, and hardly any radio reception. The only car that had reception was my parent's Chevy Lumina. Nine of us squeezed into the car for 2+ hours to hear the game. When we clinched the title, I was so jealous that I wasn't back home in the city...but looking back Dad has since passed, and it is one of my fondest memories of him and the Penguins. We celebrated in Brockway, PA as if we were at the Pittsburgh International Airport welcoming the team back.

On a game day I usually...
I watch from home on my couch. There are too many distractions watching the game at a bar or restaurant. I hate to even miss one goal. I have my game jersey on, watching with my husband, dog and baby-to-be. And yes, of course this baby will be a Penguins fan!

Congratulations, Kelly!
