3. Post a Fake Family Throwback Pic:

One of the surefire ways to prove you’re a real fan is seeming to be carrying on some long-held family tradition. However, if your parents are anything like mine their interests have nothing to do with Pittsburgh and are dumb and completely unrelated, like car shows or watching golf or volunteering, all of which is useless to you.

However, even just a cursory Google search of penguins + mother/father + son/daughter or penguins + grandma/pa + grandson/daughter reveals a plethora of very cute and believable images you can steal and post on your social media. It’ll prove your family has been proud supporters of the Pens for literally their entire existence.

***Update: If you actually search that it just gives really cute pictures of actual penguins, so- be more specific. I can only search so much.
