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.

Road to Knoxville: Guru's Blog Suddenly Multiplies

By Mel Greenberg

PHILADELPHIA _ And so it is Tuesday, the eve of the Guru's historic trip to Knoxville, Tenn., where the second of two flights will arrive early Wednesday afternoon with team members Acacia and Erin, who are also part of the Guru's traveling press corps.

Acacia, recently returned from her five-month study program in Bologna, Italy, will join us here on Tuesday and then fly on Wednesday to Charlotte, where Erin will converge with us from Boston to the connector flight to complete the journey.

The history involves the Guru becoming the first media member to be inducted into the nine-year-old Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Ceremonies and events are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, as well as a party at a well-known local coach's residence, Thursday. The other five individuals in the six-member induction class are Georgia coach Andy Landers, Andrea Lloyd Curry (Texas), Bridget Gordon (Tennessee), Daedra Charles-Furlow (Tennessee), and Pam Kelly-Flowers (Louisiana Tech).

And to add special coverage from the site, the Guru, for the moment, now has two blogs.

The original womhoops.blogspot.com will continue here offering news, commentary, and coverage of on-going activities in women's basketball at the pro and collegiate level.

The second and new blog is an outgrowth of Jonathan's creation at Philly.com which will highlight the events this week in Knoxville, although some induction coverage will also appear here.

The internal Women's Hoops Guru directly inside Philly.com at the shortcut address of http://go.philly.com/womhoops will offer, besides print coverage, photographs and multi-video, which will expand upon Jonathan's arrival Thursday afternoon.

Thus, it might be possible that a worldwide viewing audience on the internet can see events for the first time soon after they happen during the proceedings all weekend.

Eventually, it might be that the two blogs will merge into the newer site.

At the moment, some test copy of meaningful dialogue exists at the site with a pair of 2006 Final Four photographs until the advance team augments it with on-site coverage beginning Wednesday.

It's possible some new copy will go into play on Tuesday.

The Women's Hoops Guru site will have a link back here and vice versa.

In developing action on Monday, the Guru completed his reupholstering for the trip, having picked up the tux, suite, and other new apparel.

So now it's time to start packing, begin working on the weekend speeches, of which full texts will post, and get ready for the ride.

(Editor's Note: If you like the new blog, drop us a line and let us know. Our email addresses are linked to on the new blog, and you probably have Mel's anyway. If you like it enough we might just keep using it. -- J.T.)

(Guru's Note to Editor above: It took a few hours, but after you called it a night, you actually, unknown to you, did talk me out of the previously intended headline and associated copy.)
