July 25, 2012: Fan of the Day - Matt B.

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Matt B.
Pittsburgh, PA

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I started in 1986 when my friends introduced me to hockey. Mario Lemieux did amazing things with the puck that made me want to play the game. I have been a loyal fan through the great years and the lean ones.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p
ast or present)?
Ron Francis / Pascal Dupuis

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
In 2009 when the Pens won the Cup my then 5 year old son ran over to me and hugged me like we were on the ice and had just won the cup. Winning the Cup is always wonderful but seeing the look on his face will always be my favorite memory.

On a game day I usually...
Listen to Penguins live and watch for the game day report on the website. When I get home from work I put on the current jersey in my 8 jersey rotation and watch the game with my sons. We play a little street hockey in the driveway between periods.

Congratulations, Matt!
