How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I've been a Pens fan since I was 7 or 8. I grew up in Johnstown watching the Chiefs, and have been a Pens fan and hockey fan ever since then.

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
It is hard for me to remember some of the younger memories I had, so my favorite memory is the last regular season game at Mellon Arena. The mood was electric. The Pens dominated the Islanders that night, and a few players were nice enough to sign my last regular season game T-Shirt I bought that night.

On a game day I usually...
I park at the Marriott, and then head down to Cafe Fifth Avenue for a beer and sandwich. Then it is immediately to the arena to get a program and scout out the opposition before taking in the game. After the game is usually hanging out at Steelhead for a bit before going home.

Congratulations, Jim!
