How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
Since 1967 and a rabid fan since 1984 when the Mario era began!

Who is your favorite Penguins player (p

Mario Lemieux

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
13 years ago my 3 year old son and I were 8 rows from the ice by the visitor's tunnel. At the end of period 1 an off-ice official called us to the glass and handed the game puck to my son. It took 5 minutes before I got to see it. On a Saturday afternoon 0-0 tie with Boston, it was a highlight. By the end of the game Uly had the puck, a roll of stick tape and a game used Byron Dafoe goalie stick that was twice as big as he was!

On a game day I usually...
Go with my son, hike from our favorite parking spot, visit our favorite vendors, grab an Italian Beef sandwich and all before the anthem (go Jeff!) We always wait for the 3 stars as well. Let's go Pens!

Congratulations, Brian!
