This regular expression doesn't mean "greg"-followed-by-anything. It
means "greg"-followed-by-0-or-more-"g". So it matches greg, gregg,
You need it to be "greg.*:".
Btw, this is same in just about any regular expression implementation
(Python, Perl, etc).

Just a thought that you might get more helpful responses if you don't
first bash the technology before asking for help (that's how I
interpreted the "I don't have time to learn python" comment).
