June 29, 2012: Fan of the Day - Elizabeth D.

How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
You could say I was born a Penguin fan. I have four brothers and three of them older. They started skating when they were 2 and each played hockey for 20 years. I spent many years as a ''rink rat'' traveling to many hockey rinks as a child. I have loved and followed the Pens for as long as I can remember and I can thank my family for that.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Kris Letang

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
I got to go to a game with my mom, my best friend Chelsea, and her mom. Usually us ladies don't get to all go to the game because the brothers take my friends season tickets but on this special occasion we made it a girl's night out. We went to the Mellon Arena early hoping for a glimpse of a player. We ended up getting to meet multiple players including Sidney Crosby(it was his first year). They were all so nice and signed our t-shirts and pucks. We got to see a win that night and just had a blast. It was a simple night, but something I will never forget.

On a game day I usually...
First pick whether I am going to wear a Penguin's jersey, sweatshirt, or t-shirt. I usually pick which one has given the Pens the most luck lately. I always sneak my phone in class to purchase student rush tickets. If I wasn't lucky enough to get them, I do one of two things. If I am at school then I watch the game by myself screaming at the TV like a maniac. If I am at home, my family all watches the game together with pizza and mom's homemade pepperoni bread.

Congratulations, Elizabeth!
