June 27, 2012: Fan of the Day - Vanessa C.

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I have been a hockey fan my entire life! My husband became very interested in hockey last year and that made me happy.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Mario Lemieux

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My favorite Penguins memory was when I was able to surprise my husband with tickets to his first hockey game for his birthday. I celebrated his birthday the entire week and each day leading up to his birthday, I gave him a different Penguins gift. He got a key-chain, a car magnet, a mug, a t-shirt and finally the day of his birthday I surprised him with a party and on the cake I had the bakery print the ticket to the game! He was so surprised and excited!

On a game day I usually...
Wear my Sidney Crosby t-shirt and bracelet and watch the game! Of course after I read the newsletters about who is playing and what to expect! :)

Congratulations, Vanessa!
