Let’s Go Pens!

Meet Lance – a 20-year-old Pittsburgh sports fan, born and raised. However, his favorite Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t a couple of players on the ice…they’re Pittsburgh sports writers Matt Gajtka & Seth Rorabaugh!

A couple of weeks ago, Lance and his new friends had the chance to meet for the first time at the game and talk all things sports. Lance had many questions for Matt and Seth. Both men enjoyed how much Lance knew about the Pens, and especially about the two of them. Lance has followed both writers throughout their careers!

​This was the first game Lance has been to in a very long time, and you could just tell he was loving every second of it.
