August 4, 2012 - Fan of the Day - Amy P.

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I lived in California and my mom lived in Morgantown for the first Stanley cup. She became a hockey fan, and would call me and we'd watch the games over the phone, long-distance, (before cell phones were so common). Mom passed away in 1997 at the age of 50, from breast cancer.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Darius Kasparaitis

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
Kasparaitis, after his game-winner, being interviewed and saying, ''Vhere is de puck? I vant de puck!''

On a game day I usually...
Leave work early and get on the road to the Burgh at 4. Fight traffic, park in the same garage every game, walk to the ''not Igloo,'' tip the saxophone guy, get loaded pulled pork nachos from Miss Peaches, and take our seats. Must wear the vintage sweater, and antique onyx and gold ring, to please the hockey gods.

Congratulations, Amy!
