How long have you been following the Pens and how did you become a fan?
I've been a fan since I was 9 years old. It was a family event to gather around and watch hockey games, especially during the playoffs.

Who is your favorite Penguins player (past or present)?
Ulf Samuelsson

Tell us about your favorite Penguins memory.
My cousin and I were 11 and we had gone to our grandparents camp where there was no television reception. We listened to the Pens defeat the Stars to win the cup on a little radio complete with aluminum foil wrapped around the antenna so we could hear Mike Lange more clearly.

On game day I usually...
First of all, I plan which player's shirt I am going to wear (I usually go with sporting my Cooke jersey!) If I am going to the game, I have a ritual I go through. I park in the same spot, go through the same entrance (Trib Total Media) and buy my beer from the same guy (TC in front of section 230). I have to get to the game early enough so that I can see warm-ups. If I am at home, I have to turn the sound down on the TV (especially if its Mike Milbury) and make sure my radio is synced to my TV so that I can listen to Mike Lange.

Congratulations, Abby!
