How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I've been around hockey almost all my life. When I was younger I remember being at my Bubba and Pappy's house watching hockey games on TV. We'd get the chips and pretzels and watch the game with them. When I got older and could understand the game more my boyfriend (who'd become my husband) taught me more about the games. We even got to go to a bunch of games when we were in college because of the Student Rush Program. Now we are the young married couple screaming and yelling at the TV on game night.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Brooks Orpik

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My husband and I were married in January of 2009. The Steelers went on to win the SuperBowl the very next day. So how could the year get any better? Well the Pens went on to win the Stanley Cup that year making it 3 big events in 1 year. HOW AMAZING!

On game day I usually...
I stay on top of Pens news all day on game day. I keep an eye on Pensblog and on the Pens via their website, Twitter and Facebook. My Baierl Kia Extra attacker is set too. And dinner has to be done by 6:30 so my husband and I can watch the pregame and won't miss a minute of the game. During the game texting with friends and family about the game is always going on between the cheering and yelling at the TV.

Congratulations, Brenda!
