First off, let me just give a huge thank you to Kevin for giving me the opportunity to be a part of THE place for all things New York Rangers on the Internet. It’s been a part of my daily routine for years and when Kevin announced he might shut down for good, I felt a part of me would be going away. This site spawned may of the others around that are read daily. So, that makes Kevin a pioneer. Simply put, he should be known as The Godblogger from here on out.

For anyone who knows me, an introduction is not needed. For those who don’t, I’ve been an avid Rangers fan for as long as I can remember. I grew up during the Dark Ages of the Rangers franchise, having to endure Igor Ulanov getting burnt by Jeremy Roenick, Mike Richter tearing his ACL again and again towards the end of his career, seeing Mike York get traded for Tom Poti and, who can forget, signing Bobby Holik to a five-year, $45 million contract.

I’ve also been lucky enough to write about the team as they've slowly come back to being one of the better teams in the NHL for websites like Bleacher Report, Blue Line Station and my first site SportsRadio New York. I’m a passionate guy first and foremost; you’ll soon learn that. I’ve got a broadcasting degree and hopefully can put that to use to enhance the site and make The New York Rangers Blog better than ever.

I look forward to starting my journey with everyone. It’s going to be a fun ride.
