July 12, 2012: Fan of the Day - Ryan K.

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I grew up watching the penguins and have been following them for as long as I can remember. When I started playing ice hockey in about third grade I fell in love with the sport of hockey and most of all the Pittsburgh Penguins.

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite memory was going to the Penguins 2009-2010 home opener when the Stanley Cup was presented on home ice at Mellon Arena. That was one of the most memorable and loud games I have ever been to. My second favorite memory was December 2, 2010. It was my first game at the new CONSOL Energy Center where I witnessed Sidney Crosby's first natural hat trick against the Atlanta Thrashers.

On a game day I usually...
I never miss a game but a typical game day varies. Even when I had night class for grad school at Duquesne University I had my NHL Game Center Live premium account so that I can watch the games in class. Other days, especially during the playoffs, I may make a quick Photoshop for Facebook or the Pensblog. I always read the game day reports and usually the Pensblog daily to keep up on whats going on with our team as well as the opposition.

Congratulations, Ryan!
