Obviously this is just a pointless exercise because Pens fans will always be considered bandwagoners by people who have absolutely nothing worthwhile to add to a conversation, it's just something that I find curious.
Yeah I don't know. I was always a huge Mario fan (Mario over Wayne )... but never really followed or watched hockey until 13 years ago - so while I followed what was happening in Pittsburgh... things were pretty bleak. Then was a Crosby fan before he was drafted. I remember watching the memorial cup in Prince George at a bar and pissing off some other patrons cheering for Rimouski. But it wasn't until he was drafted that I really started following and watching the Pens again.

Is that a bandwagon fan? I don't know. In some ways it feels like it... but in all honesty I don't care. As far as I'm concerned I'm a Pens fan (Leafs (2nd fav team) are a distant 2nd).
