royhobbs is a traveler from Atlanta who stumbled upon GLB one day in 2008, seeking the local knowledge and advice of San Diego-area Padres fans, in preparation for a west coast ballpark trip. Despite being a Braves fan, what ended up happening was that he was enamored by the lighthearted atmosphere and clever wit of the locals. With the help of GLB, royhobbs had a great time in San Diego and was very grateful for the advice of the community.
To punish them for their generosity, he sporadically hangs out at GLB despite being a fan of a completely different team.
royhobbs is also known to do a lot of writing. He writes for a Braves blog on the same network as GLB, as well as a few other writing ventures. Due to his additional love for zombies, running and competitive eating, he somehow was named a writer for Uncommon Sportsman. But he's mostly known by older GLBers for some pretty lengthy, photo-filled, Padre-centric travel experiences:
