Erin Subs For Guru at WNBA Finals With All-Star Effort

(Guru's Subsequent Note at 3:45 a.m. EDT, Sept. 14, to copy in this post published several days ago:

Hi Everybody. The family situation referred to below continues and when events warrant, which could overtake this post any moment, a special blog will appear here and at our newer platform site at women's hoops guru. detailing what has occurred.

But the Guru would like to salute Erin for a magnificent effort in replacing him by his appointment and arrangement in the starting lineup the last few days at the WNBA playoffs in Phoenix. As former Rutgers star Cappie Pondexter performed Thursday night on the court in Game 4, so did Erin on press row with our first-ever play-by-play blog, which was colored by some scene observation, followed by quick postgame descriptions, a well-written postgame story, and some additional notes.

In 2006, Kate brought the blog a new dimension by reporting from the Women's Final Four in Boston. Then last winter, Acacia, who checked in Thursday night from Vassar with a nice and gracious phone call, launched foreign bureau coverage from Italy. Jonathan, through his talents at philly.com, has helped lead us to multi-media dimensions, which began in June at the new site featuring coverage of the Guru's induction into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. As a student at Penn, he also had done fine reporting here of the WNBA's Washington Mystics.
Erin had already been doing quality work with us, but in a tough spot, she, too, has made her own special mark on our team and the Guru wanted to add his thanks and salute for a job well done.

PHILADELPHIA _ As previously mentioned, a family situation back here on the home front has necessitated the Guru remaining close by.

However, the Guru is pleased to announce that Erin Semagin Damio of the blogging team has arrived in the desert and has begun reporting from Phoenix and the third game of the WNBA championship series involving the Mercury and defending champion Detroit Shock.

She will remain as our primary starter on the scene through Thursday night's action before returning to Boston where she is a student at Northeastern University and a member of the rowing team.

Her coverage also begins our transition to the site that housed all the Guru women's basketball hall of fame induction coverage and she has already put up the first post. Your link is at women's hoops guru, which also for bookmarking purposes is located at http://go.philly.com/womhoops.

This site will still exist however, and we'll link back and forth when need be. It will also enable all you Kate and Acacia fans to go back into the archives for their previous works, as well as Erin's, yours truly, as well as others such as Kathleen and Stephen.

However, let it be noted that the rest of Erin's efforts tonight (Tues.) will be somewhat delayed because of a memory problem involving her laptop. No, it didn't involve microchips. She reported by phone she left it locked in her rental car. Understand, she's spent more time in recent months as a coxswain steering with a bullhorn than from behind the wheel of an automobile.
