About

Born and raised in the metro Atlanta area, Ben Gunby is definitely the epitome of a hometown fan. His favorite NASCAR driver was Bill Elliott, and his favorite sports teams consist of the four professional franchises in Atlanta, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Georgia State, as well as the Calgary Flames because they used to play in Atlanta. He's a fan of David Ragan and Reed Sorreson, as well as Davis Love III, David Duval and Stewart Cink. He's also an ardent supporter of his former high school, the Social Circle Redskins. Other teams of interest are usually teams with players who played high school and/or college football in the state of Georgia.

However, he does not limit his sports watching to just the local teams. He's as versed on teams from around the nation as he is with those in his own backyard. He closely follows the NFL, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, College Football and College Basketball. He is also a more than avid fan of golf, and has more than just a passing interest in tennis and the NHL, as well as college baseball. Basically, if it's a sport, he follows it, and follows it on a national scale. As a fan he's been fortunate to witness some pretty big moments in sports, and attend big time sporting events. He's been to the Brickyard 400 and Daytona 500, he's been to NFL and MLB playoff games. He's seen a perfect game thrown and been to the men's SEC tournament, as well as been to the PGA Championship.

Outside of his passion for following sports he (untill health issues have put that on hold for a while) also enjoys playing them. He can be found shooting pool, or playing golf, as well as enjoying pickup basketball games or playing for a local recreational softball team. Outside of the realm of sports he enjoys movies and music of all kinds, as his tastes are definitely rather eclectic. He enjoys cooking as well, as next to the sports networks, Food Network probably ranks as his favorite channel. He loves to experiment in the kitchen.

    Hey Ben—Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our ATL teams pages and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point analysis...you do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at dmorrison@bleacherreport.com with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo

    exactly you stuck your damn nose in and started your crap with me because you disagree with my view on the almighty Favre. Too bad I write what I want when I have a chance someone has to give a voice to another view than just puckering up to Brett Favre and whoever else the media tells us to.
    In all seriousness I do hope your health problems get better and you get back to doing the things you enjoy I know how much that can suck.

    Sorry man, I didn't mean that to sound hostile though, and if that's the vibe I gave off then I'm sorry about that. I have a bad habbit of scrolling to the bottom of the comments section when I see that there's a new one, so I didn't check the other comments I posted. All that (the earlier post) was about was just me trying to seek clarifictation, because I couldn't figure out where the word "guaranteed" came in, and just wanted to see where I missed it because it is just a preview, and you're right—nothing is guaranteed until November when the season is over and it's written in the history books. Sorry for sounding hostile though, and again...thanks for reading haha.

    Guaranteed? I can't seem to find where I said that in my article, so I'd appreciate it if you enlightened me. The best I can find is when I talk about Johan's contributions to the Mets "ensuring they can stay competitive for the entire season". And I never said they'd be unchallenege...I even said that Johan would have trouble with the high-powered Philly and Atlanta offenses, and I separated the Phils by three wins just from the Mets. Just because I think the Phils will win the Wild Card doesn't mean I don't think they'll challenge for the division—on the contrary I think they'll challenege, but if Johan stays healthy and consistent then there's no way I can see them replicating last year's collapse.

    Thanks for reading.

    Ben,

    Like I said, I'm not (and can't be) responsible for the work of new User-Editors. If you want, I can ensure that NO ONE edits your articles...but of course then they wouldn't be fully integrated into the network. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to limit your articles to particular editors.

    Personally, I'd recommend that you continue to leave notes and role with the punches--and continue to nullify any revisions that don't sit well. Let me know how you want to go forward when you get a chance.
