John Murray Memorial

The SmartGuySports fantasy family are losing one of our oldest and best friends in John Murray. If you have played in one of my leagues over the last 20+ years, you have probably competed against John and his H-Town franchises. If there is a Hall of Fame for owners, John Murray would be a founding member. He’s been a great friend of mine for a long time. Over the last year, John’s been fighting like he did in our football and baseball leagues with his health. One of the last interactions I had with John was to send his winnings over for winning the Wild Card Baseball League in 2021. John wanted me to take $100 out of his winnings to me, for running the leagues, of course I didn’t accept it. That’s John Murray. You can’t replace someone like John as a good friend and competitor. I’m going to miss him dearly.

In honor of John and his years with this group and all the good times we’ve had over the years I’m going to running a 2022 John Murray Memorial Playoff League on MyFantasyLeague. The league site is here:

This is going to be a 50/50 league. $50 for entry, 50% of the league fees will be set aside and I’ll be sending that over to John’s family. If you are interested in participating in the John Murray Memorial Playoff League, just send me an email and I’ll get you setup and collect the league fees either via PayPal or LeagueSafe.

If you’d like to contribute to John’s family, I’ll be collecting any donations and get 100% of those over to his family. You can contribute by getting in touch with me directly at:

Any donations made to John’s family will go along with everyone’s name that contributed and any well wishes that you want to share. I’ll put all those together for everyone.

Thank you

Brian Kreklau
