July 10, 2012: Fan of the Day - Frank K.

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I became a pens fan 5 years ago because my good friend Brandon was always watching hockey. He had a picture of Sidney Crosby on his wall and I asked him ''Whose that?'' and he says ''Get out of my house." He was only kidding but after that day he made me watch a game with him. I became hooked; I've always watched the Steelers play but hockey is a different monster. It doesn't stop, it's always exciting, and it always makes my pulse pound.

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
I have two that I will never forget.

For the first one, I was watching the final game of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs. I was at the Outer Banks that week, and I got to watch the Pens win with my family I only get to see once a year. I couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate the victory than with my whole family.

For the second, I was debating whether or not to go to the game on 12/17/11. I ended up going last minute and got to witness a Geno Hat Trick against the Sabres. It was unbelievable; never in a million years would I have thought I would get to see one in person!

On a game day I usually...
Well I always make sure to have some sort of plans for the game. Whether it be going out to a sports bar, going to a friend's house, attending the game, or having a party at my house. I am always doing something and I always make sure I am wearing my Jersey/Pens hat. In my opinion, it's always better to watch games with other people; it makes them even more exciting.

Congratulations, Frank!
