How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I have been a Pens fan since I have been born. My cousin taught me the love of the game, and even taught me how to play. He even took me to my first game in the Civic Arena. I bleed for the Penguins, they are even tattooed across my back. No matter what, I will die a Penguins fan.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Sidney Crosby

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My best Penguins memory was not during a game, but during a practice. When I was little, my mother used to take me to Southpointe to watch the team practice. I was so excited that I got to sit in the glass seats that I couldn't pay attention to the food that was in front of me. It was at that moment that Ron Francis looked up at the glass and winked at me. It was the best day of my life and I will always remember that day.

On game day I usually...
On game day I always make sure to wear one of my many jerseys or Penguins apparel. I even have the Pens logo painted on my shoes. I make sure the whole house I live in knows that there is a Penguins game on to get support for the game. If I'm alone for the game, that's fine, but they know not to bother me during the game. With how quick the Pens are, if you blink you could miss a goal. My homework is done before hand, and I make sure I have everything I need so I don't miss a single puck drop. My roommate even knows not to touch the television while the game is on.

Congratulations, Cody!
