On the internet everyone needs a unique handle, so I long ago started using gondeee for mine. It was clean, simple, easy to remember, and available on most websites. Martin Gandy is my real name, and gondeee is a play on my last name, which is in turn a play on Gandhi.
I’ve been blogging about the Atlanta Braves since the 2005 off-season at Talking Chop. In 2013 I decided to step away from running a big and involved site like TC and get back to a simpler style of writing about the Braves. I feel that blogging should have a personality to it, and while TC was a great site, it had gotten so big and corporate that it had lost its personality.
My objective is to bring my readers daily news and notes from the entire Braves organization. I try to point out things that might have been missed about the Major League team, and highlight the important players and prospects at each level of the minors.
I have comments turned off so that I can focus on delivering content, and not moderating comments and deleting spam comments. I may change that policy in the future, but for now any comments or questions you have can be tweeted to me @gondeee.
