How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
When I was younger I always knew of the Penguins and liked them but my family were die-hard football and Steelers fans! One day in school in the library I read an article about this player that the Pens were going to draft named Mario Lemieux and everything I read about him amazed me. Soon I was devouring any article I could find about him. When I finally got to see him play I was hooked! The things Mario did on the ice were magical and had me in awe. Made me a fan of his and a Pens fan for life!!!

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
Christmas of 2008 my girlfriend got us tickets to see the Pens that February. We made a day of it down in Pittsburgh. Even though the Pens lost to the Panthers we had a great time. The Penguins went on to win the Cup that year and it was the last game I got to see in the old Civic Arena! Best day ever!!!

On a game day I usually...
I usually decide what Pens gear to wear...pour over the game day articles...go over the Pens news of the day with my buddy Dave....get the pre-game jitters....and get home from work in time for the drop of the puck and hopefully a Penguins win!!!

Congratulations, Chris!
