Doug Wolter: The marvelous Windom baseball experience
It’s an uneventful afternoon here at The Globe headquarters in Worthington. It can be like that in early August, with summer sports petering out and high school fall sports not yet emerging. So naturally, my mind wanders. Here are a few thoughts that meandered through the empty...

Doug Wolter: The new NFL: The 'Look at Me League'
I have a funny little rule regarding on-field football celebrations: If high school kids shouldn’t do it, then NFL players shouldn’t either. You know how it is in high school. Spontaneous celebrations are fine, but attempts to draw attention to one’s self are another thing entirely....

Doug Wolter: Bummed about the bowling deficit in Worthington
Every time I drive past Oxford Bowl on my way to and from work, I give it a glance. And I think about how disappointing it is that it no longer does business. In a few months, Worthington will embark on another winter without bowling. And when I see today the empty Oxford Bowl forlornly...

Doug Wolter: Something special will be missing after Vikings leave Mankato
Progress is in the eye of the beholder, and I think that’s the proper way to appraise the Minnesota Vikings’ decision to move their training camp from Mankato to Eagan beginning in 2018.

Doug Wolter: Why do we play? For dreams of glory
I went to the Minnesota state girls softball tournament in North Mankato last week, and on the following Saturday followed that up with an appearance at the state track and field meet in St. Paul. I thought it was interesting that, before each tournament began, a statement was broadcast...

Wolter and Watts: Do you feel a draft coming on?
Real football fans must watch televised coverage of the NFL Draft. These same people who tease their wives and girlfriends about reality shows like “Survivor” and “The Bachelor” are no less silly when it comes to the annual football flesh show. We sit in front of our TV sets...

Doug Wolter: Tweets are making JCC track more fun
There are a lot of grownups who don’t understand Twitter. But Rafe York, track and field coach at Jackson County Central High School, has it down. And because he’s willing to push the envelope a bit, he’s making the sport more fun for his athletes. Here’s a sample:

Doug Wolter: It's time to do right for the Worthington gym program
BY DOUG WOLTER Daily Globe sports editor I suspect that when District 518 Superintendent John Landgaard said last weekend that if a new facility for the Worthington High School gymnastics program isn’t found, it will be cut, he meant to scare people into action. If so, it had better...

The other day, a colleague of mine showed me video footage of an immensely-talented NBA player standing around on defense while a game was going on all around him. You would’ve thought he’d put forth at least a minimal amount of effort, such as a raised arm or a half-hearted move...

Doug Wolter: Trojans fighting uphill battle in Section 2AAA
Every year, it always seems to be the same. The Worthington Trojans girls basketball team doesn’t get the seeding its record appears to deserve. Tonight, WHS will open the Section 2AAA tournament against a 21-5 New Ulm team seeded No. 2 in an eight-team field. Worthington is 16-8...
