Womhoops Guru

Mel Greenberg covered college and professional women’s basketball for the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he worked for 40 plus years. Greenberg pioneered national coverage of the game, including the original Top 25 women's college poll. His knowledge has earned him nicknames such as "The Guru" and "The Godfather," as well as induction into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007.

Guru Heads to Oklahoma

PHILADELPHIA _ Rumors concerning the Guru intensified early Thursday night when the sports editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer sent a note to the newsroom implying to staff members they might want to break away a few minutes from watching the Eagles-Redskins game to tune to ESPN2, particularly at halftime of the Rutgers-Georgia women's basketball matchup that wll kick off the annual State Farm Tipoff.

DePaul meets host Oklahoma in the second game.

The Guru provided only limited responses to questions from newsroom colleagues who were otherwise pre-occupied and enthralled watching Rutgers upset Louisville in football.

"These rumors have occurred several times in the past at the start of the season," the Guru said of previous speculation that he might become part of the news as opposed to covering the news.

The Guru also noted similar TV alerts are given ahead of time about any staff member who is a threat to be interviewed or otherwise involved such as the recent specualtion about Dancing With The Stars' pursuing one Stephen A.

When that one propped up the same editor suggested the Guru provide either The Protege or a recently-retired WNBA player in town as a dancing partner.

"One's too young, the other too old," the Guru replied.

As for the coincidence of Thursday's newsroom message and the Guru's Friday morning plane ticket to Oklahoma City, the Guru noted that Rutgers is a local team he covers when the Scarlet Knights meet national rivals.

In any event, more may be known in the next 48 hours when an institution in Knoxville, Tenn., begins sending its annual release indictating participants in next spring's ceremonies.

The Inquirer's sports section is also reported readying a special display for Sunday editions.

Meanwhile, the Guru will be headquartered from Friday afternoon on in the Postal Training Center in Norman, a hotel-corporate facilities that may one day have to be re-named for the talented postal centers the Sooners seem to be attracting these days.

To be a upright lenient being is to procure a amiable of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an cleverness to trust undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly weighty about the get of the principled passion: that it is based on a trust in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a jewel, something fairly tenuous, but whose acutely precise attraction is inseparable from that fragility.

A contented beloved maturity is the award of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and dolour prospects of rot, it would give us hopes of timeless stripling in a better world.
