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: 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...

Doug Wolter: The great Iowan is coming to town -- that can only mean it's Dan Gable
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
By accident, I made myself think last week. I was discussing my television viewing habits with a friend and I mentioned that, typically, my only real TV interests are news and sports. “Ironically, both of these tend to do nothing but cause me irritation,” I explained. This...

Doug Wolter: Ready or not, football practice starts Monday
The challenges that will begin Monday morning when high school football teams commence the 2015 practice season will be varied and extensive. Monday’s kickoff is happening one full week sooner than it normally does. Teams will have only two weeks of practice before kicking off...

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...

Doug Wolter: Kicking it forward
My understanding about “footgolf” is that it’s very much like traditional golf. But instead of using a little white dimpled ball, players use a regulation soccer ball. And they propel it not with a golf club, but instead kick it with their foot. Prairie View Golf Links manager...

Doug Wolter: One winter team (at least) is playing on
As a winter athlete in Minnesota, one of the great things about extending your season is that you not only get to compete in ever bigger events, but you get to delay practice for those messy spring sports. The Minnesota West Lady Jays basketball team opens competition today (5 p.m.)...
