Quote of the day
"I'm a little jealous of him because I was never able to escape the injury bug in my career, while [Kobe has] never really been injured at all. But all of that is a testament to his hard work and dedication. I'm proud of him. I'm happy for him. And, most of all, I want to thank him for being a part of the greatest 1-2 punch ever created, never to be duplicated." -- Shaquille OíNeal, after Kobe Bryant passed him on the NBA career scoring list
You may have noticed that I recently changed the basis of the GuruPatron tally on the top of this blurb page (and other pages that show this data.) I previously displayed year-to-date donations. But I decided that YTD numbers made the site look too small, given the reduction in donations over the past several years. At one point, GuruPatron donations were the primary source of revenue to fund site costs. Thatís no longer the case, as referral fees from affiliated daily contest sites are now footing the majority of the bills. Iím grateful for the steadier current source of revenue Ė but also mindful of the tremendous support Iíve received from so many RotoGurupies over the past decade, without which this site would probably have folded its tent long ago. So the new format is also a way continue to recognize and thank all of those who have sent in voluntary donations during the many years when advertising and other sponsored revenues were so lean.
