July 13, 2012: Fan of the Day - Kristen M.

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Halifax, PA

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I was raised to be a Penguins fan! My dad grew up in Pittsburgh in the Mario generation and I grew up knowing nothing put the Pens. Since coming to the University of Pittsburgh I have been especially following them because I am able to student rush!

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite memory is American Eagle Student Rushes. Getting up and sitting in front of CONSOL at 6am to insure we are the first people in line is always a great time! Whether we were getting rained on or getting sunburn, we always have a good time because we know there are only hours until puck drop! Also, you know the crowds of people you are with are super Pens fans and it is a great atmosphere! And of course when Dan Bylsma walks in every time you can't help but feel like you were just passed by greatness!

On a gam
e day I usually...
I am always in front of a TV somewhere watching the game or student rushing. I literally will pass on going out with my friends if there is a game on. It is just the way I have always been. Pens are my priority.

Congratulations, Kristen!
