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.

WNBA: Guru's First Dilemma

By Mel Greenberg

This dateline has nothing to do with Tuesday morning's exhibition game between the Connecticut Sun and Atlanta Dream other to show where this post is originating from in a very nice room in a relatively new hotel -- Hyatt Place -- a mile or little more or less from the Mohegan Sun.

The Guru was also told a secret from the hotel staff on how to get a cheap rate here during the summer except Fri and Sat.

Waiting out rush hour traffic to get up here from Philly worked out fine -- other than some construction work on I-95 on the bridge by New Haven -- wow they really are starting to build ramps and such.

Anyhow the reason the Guru called you all together after you have awakened is the WNBA is having a preseason teleconference call Friday afternoon -- an annual event which will feature select coaches and players.

In terms of the Guru soliciting you is this will be his first event -- not counting writing something Tuesday off the game -- since leaving the Inquirer ship after 40-some years almost two weeks ago. Technically, though off the payroll, the Guru is still electronically tethered through Monday. But after that, those of you who have not begun switching to poll@att.net for one of the Guru's main email addresses from mgreenberg@phillynews.com are going to start getting bounces like crazy.

Actually, what might happen is, in the event free lance is in the future, the email address will remain dormant but the Guru will have no access to it so anything you send will lie there and get periodically purged.

Now back from the digression, when the WNBA call begins, the instructions from the moderators will undoubtedly say -- "State your name and affiliation."

What is the answer to the second part of that if you were in the Guru's shoes.

Jonathan and the Guru have one idea, but that has to be run through the Guru's media friends in the WNBA oval office.

That aside, feel free to participate.

OK, time to go to sleep to wake up for an AM special, followed, Wednesday, by an AM attendance in Washington for the Mystics' game.

See you all sometime Tuesday afternoon.
