How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I've been following the Pens since I was 5-years-old. I became a fan when my mom decided to buy me hockey action figures. She was going to buy me Red Wings players (we're from Detroit), but only Penguins were available. I loved my Jagr action figure, and I've been a Pens fan ever since!

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Paul Coffey

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite Penguins memory is the first Penguins game I ever went to: Game 2 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals. I was surrounded by Wings fans (my mom included) and I got booed all throughout the game. The Penguins didn't even win, but I was so happy to finally see them in person that none of that mattered! I had a blast and the Pens went on to win the cup!

On a game day I usually...
On game day I usually read the Pens Report between classes, then rush to finish my studying so that I'll have time to watch the game!

Congratulations, Erika!
