July 8, 2012: Fan of the Day - Miriya W.

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
20 years, when I was three months old my dad sat me down in front of the TV to watch a game and I've been watching ever since.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Eric Godard

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
Watching the boys lift the Cup in June 2009. My group and I had watched all of the playoff games at the big screen at the arena, but when NBC made it so their games couldn't be viewed on the screen we had our own screen. After spending the day at the arena we moved the TV out to the yard to make it feel like we were at the screen. When the final buzzer went off I cried.

On a game day I usually...
Put on a Pens t-shirt, read the game day report, and watch the game religiously even though I'm on the other side of the county now due to service in the military, both my husband and I (although I'm no longer in).

Congratulations, Miriya!
