Hi there! My name is Brandon Matassa and I am the newest writer here on BlueLineStation.com. I have been a New York Rangers fan basically since the day I was born. My dad has been a diehard all of his life, he had a Rangers based wedding, and out of my 3 other siblings I was really the only one who found a love for hockey the way he did, and still does. I love watching pretty much every sport (I am a diehard New York Jets, Knicks, Yankees and Red Bulls fan), but there was just something about hockey that made me love it more than any other sport. Not sure if it was the natural high pace of the game or all the heavy hitting, but I became obsessed with hockey. When I was younger my dad would let me stay up “extra late” so I could watch every game. My parents had me signed up to play ice hockey when I was around 10 years old and I have played ever since. Each year my dad and I watch about 90% of the Rangers games together and you could always find us throwing parties come playoffs time. No matter who I am watching the game with, there’s another place you will always find me during a game and that is Twitter. I have been on Twitter for a few years now and that’s what genuinely led me to start writing here. If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that my username is @GirardiGod. I have been a huge Girardi fan since his first NHL game. As a kid, I looked up to him and even today I still find his story an inspiration. My life revolves around the Rangers so I am beyond excited to start writing about them and I hope you’re excited to start reading my posts! Let’s go Rangers!
