4. Bio: I am a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, always have been, since the early 90′s. I love the game first and foremost. I got to go to a game a long long time ago, my Dad’s work had a box and offered tickets to us, I bet I was in elementary school or jr high. I have been hooked ever since. I got to go to the Stanley Cup celebration at the Three Rivers Stadium, a memory for life.
I am such a huge fan of the players, and any chance I get to meet them (now as an adult) I do.I never got to do that when I was young, so I take advantage now. Might seem silly as an adult getting all excited meeting the players, but to me it is so much fun! I really enjoy going to the open practices and get to see the players closer up. I will never get to sit in a front row seat at a game, so that is the next best thing!
5. When did you become a fan of Kris Letang? – 2009
6. Favorite Tanger moment (on the ice, off the ice, fan meet & greet, etc).
Fave Tanger moment? Oh geesh… I got to meet Tanger in 2012. Even as an adult, it was a very exciting moment for me. He is such a cutie, but more than that super talented hockey player! I was so excited the moment was a blur actually, luckily I got another chance a few months later-I made sure I took in every second that time!
On the ice, when he came back after being hit and his nose getting broken, then scored the winning goal!
