Heartbreakingly Great Names #26: Ben Gay

This series highlights those few lucky [and unlucky] athletes that have names that make you stop and do a double take.

Full Name: Benjamin Stevenson Gay Jr.

2002 Fleer Ultra #161 Ben Gay [Gold Version]

Kids who have the last name of "Gay" already have one strike against them when it comes to getting bullied in school. Give your child the same name as an analgesic heat rub and you're begging to have them receive some atomic wedgies during recess.

Ben played for the Cleveland Browns in the 2001 season as a third string running back. Over 16 games he ran for 172 yards and scored a touchdown.
