July 20, 2012: Fan of the Day - Veronica

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Montgomery, MN

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I have been a Pens fan my entire life since my parents are from Pittsburgh but only watched the odd game here and there. I started watching games regularly early in the 2010-11 season with my dad and became addicted to all things Penguins hockey within days. Watching the Penguins brought my dad and I closer than we had ever been before and has helped me make several friends this past year that I wouldn't have otherwise made had it not been for the Penguins. It's not always easy being a Pens fan in Minnesota (I've only been to two games, one of which I traveled almost 1000 miles to see!) but nothing makes me happier than cheering on my boys!

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

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite Penguins memory is Pascal Dupuis' breakaway goal against the Wild 10/18/11. It was the first Pens game I've seen in person and it was so exciting to see one of my favorite players score shorthanded. Go Duper!

On a game day I usually...
I don't have too many ''game day rituals'' except to check any game notes/info on the Pens' website/Twitter and to wear one of my jerseys during the game!

Congratulations, Veronica!
