BSB welcomes a new writer

November 30, 2013, by

Some of the feedback we have received over the past few weeks has been a desire to see some more league coverage, as well as seeing a female writer. While adding a new writer was never really an immediate plan, adding more league coverage was something we had wanted to pursue for some time now. Luckily, we had someone around all along that not only was instrumental in the founding of the blog, but probably watches more non-Ranger hockey than all five of us combined.

For those that are unfamiliar with the original story of how this blog was founded, one of my closest friends for the past decade recommended that I start writing in December of 2008. Five years later, this blog has grown to add four great writers, and is one of the top Ranger blogs out there today (in my humble opinion).

That close friend, Becky (@bhabs37), will be the one joining us going forward. For now, she will be starting with Around the NHL posts (first one up tomorrow). Becky has always been an honorary writer here, chiming in with a few guest posts every now and then. It seemed fitting that we bring her on for a weekly post. Be sure to follow her on Twitter.

    One of the top Rangers blogs? How about THE top Rangers blog. I’m looking forward to the new addition, Becky!

    I’m sure the BSB Nation will get past the “Habs” portion of her T account.

      I don’t have problem with that. Go Betty !! I’m over it.

    • Becky says:

      Ha I’ll clarify for ya – it’s part of my full name which has been a nickname of mine for years. Few of my friends called me Habs in college and it stuck. I’ve got some teams that I pull for – which you can easily tell via twitter – but the Canadiens aren’t one of them.

  6. Becky says:

    Thank you guys so much! I’m so excited to join the team.. looking forward to your feedback!
