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 Welcomes You Back To The Future

By Mel Greenberg

Hello everyone. In light of the Tuesday auction of The Philadelphia Inquirer and most of the farewells out of the way, this is as good a time as any, to switch addresses and move forward into the summer.

There will be one more elongated post of rembrances at The Inky at the end of the transition period since many stories had to be omitted at the newsroom party for the Guru so the brisket and corn beef would remain warm for the sandwiches.

This note has been written as an update and so everyone can adjust links, for now, to this site again. If you want to go connect to Guru blog archives at the Inquirer, then just create a new name for go.philly.com/womhoops.

Again, to repeat, the retirement was only about being on the daily payroll of The Inquirer, not giving up women's basketball coverage to watch the lawn being mowed, etc.

If anything, the summer will now see the Guru around the WNBA more -- not less -- in 2010.

Therefore, no valedictory speeches to women's hoops -- only to what had been achieved covering women's hoops as well as other functions in The Inquirer.

This blog, back at the original address, may only be housed here temporarily and some of the team members listed have moved on.

Depending on what happens down the road, it could again resurface under the Philly.com umbrella although I suspect some links may show up from there, if allowable, for newsworthy Guru info.

If any tekkies out there want to check in, the Guru did purchase the domain melgreenberg.com and some associated domains from godaddy.com but doesn't know what to do with them yet.

There has been some discussions on writing out of the Women's Hall of Fame site, since the Guru is a member and a link exists anyway but that's still a deliberation on all sides.

And there are a few people with project ideas.

Basically, the Guru is a free agent, though the word free should be tempered somewhat to keep summer travel funds, minial that they need to be, healthy. The three-city tour, not counting breaking news elsewhere, involves train tickets, tanks of gas, and, in the case of the Connecticut Sun a reasonable hotel room, which the Guru often finds.

Because you come for the Guru words, not site appearance, bear with him until he gets into something more manageable and refined.

All ideas and discussions welcomed.

The twitter remains at @womhoopsguru and unfortunately/fortunately the Guru does exist on facebook.

The inky email has finally been restored but that is for a brief three-week period so all of you should be using the other accounts, all of which will get to the Guru's blackberry.

I think that is it for now.

Thanks for everything in the past and get ready to move forward in the future, the way we always have.

-- Mel (who hopes this posts and you all have found your way here again)
