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...

Doug Wolter: Trust me, the game has changed
I am suitably excited about the return of major league baseball, and as a lifelong fan I know the lure. Baseball is as regular as the coming of spring and — its disciples remind us — just as unchangeable. That’s not exactly true, of course. Baseball has undergone many important...

It’s true what they say, that on any given night something incredible is happening somewhere in the high school sporting world. On Thursday, it happened at St. Peter’s Gustavus Adolphus College in the Section 2AAA boys basketball championship between the Waseca Bluejays and the...

Doug Wolter: How to survive without the NFL
For the next six months, we’ve got to learn to adjust to life without NFL football. It’s going to be tough, but I’ve already begun. Last Sunday afternoon, a few hours prior to the final NFL broadcast of the 2015 season — Super Bowl 50 — I practiced for my new early Sunday...

Doug Wolter: JCC/Worthington friendly gym rivalry is going strong
The Jackson County Central and Worthington High School gymnastics teams don’t meet for the first time this season until Jan. 16 in JCC’s own eight-team Sweetheart Invitational. As usual, that will be a big test for both southwest Minnesota tumbling programs. Just as surely as...

Doug Wolter: In Adrian and Luverne, it's all about wrestling and hockey
You may be relieved to know that head coach Gregg Nelson isn’t worried that his Adrian Dragons wrestling team is peaking too soon. Despite beating three state-ranked teams on one night on Dec. 10 and placing a solid third at the 15-team Jackson Tournament on Dec. 12, the Dragons...

Not since that time long ago when I had a sit-down one-on-one interview with Kirby Puckett have I been as excited to chat with such a legendary athlete. On Wednesday, I received a telephone call from Dan Gable, who in 1999 was chosen the greatest athlete in the history of Iowa by...

Doug Wolter: Warning -- Watching NFL football can drive you crazy

Doug Wolter: A great sport is dying
I come not to bury men’s fast-pitch softball, but to mourn over it. A great and storied sport isn’t quite dead — to borrow a line from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” — but it’s in trouble. Not even 30 years ago, there were enough men’s fast-pitch teams in southern...
