July 24, 2012: Fan of the Day - Emily

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Denville, NJ

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I have been a fan since my first Penguins game at 6 years old. My uncle took me to a game vs the Rangers, who are my dad and brothers favorite team. I loved the players, and the experience at the game so now I am a huge fan.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Marc-Andre Fleury

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
It would have to be when they won the cup. I was excited to be able to watch the game, since I can't always, living in NJ. I was devastated when they lost last year, but I had faith in the team and Fleury. They fought till the end of the game, and I was so excited I couldn't go to sleep! It is truly a day I will never forget.

On a game day I usually...
First, I read the Pens report and scouting report. I then listen to the game on the radio while reading the game day blog. When they play a NY or NJ team, I can watch, as well as when they are on NBC or NHL network. Finally, many times throughout the season, I visit the Penguins at the Islanders, Devils, or Rangers arena, and cheer on the Penguins from there.

Congratulations, Emily!
