DOUG WOLTER AND ADAM WATTS Daily Globe sports reporters If you were to say Michael Jordan is NOT the greatest basketball player of all time, would the sports police come knocking at your door? If you had the audacity to opine that Joe Louis was better than Muhammad Ali, would that...

Doug Wolter: Patriot jealousy, and other thoughts
I have a computer football game at home where, if I wanted to, I could fudge the numbers to a degree that the Minnesota Vikings would be good enough to play in the 2017 Super Bowl. With a few clicks, I could make the Vikings’ defense always perform as it did through the first five...

Doug Wolter: Above all, be an encourager
I hardly ever read any articles in the Minnesota State High School League Bulletin when it crosses my desk. Bulletin writers are always pounding the same themes -- participation, sportsmanship, responsibility, teamwork -- that kind of stuff. It’s not that I don’t believe in those...

Wolter: Here comes 2017; work hard, for nothing is certain
The Minnesota State High School League, in its indisputable wisdom, has decreed that the state tournament experience is too awesome to be offered only to a select few. This is why those bygone days of single-class state tournaments has become a thing of the past -- remembered only...

Doug Wolter: Dragons, Generals getting noticed for all the right reasons
In the middle of December, it’s late enough to recognize the fast starts -- and too soon to predict what will happen after teams return to action from their Christmas breaks. Today, however, it’s hats-off time to the Adrian Dragons boys basketball team and the Sibley-Ocheyedan...

Doug Wolter: Football battles to stay ahead of injuries
On Saturday while relaxing in a lawn chair at a family reunion, my wife’s cousin Gary and I discussed football. Gary wondered out loud why, when we were younger, NFL players seemed to suffer so few injuries compared to today. We opined that perhaps the change is largely due to the...
