Zach Hacker: It's all about the players... but it's a little about the coach
Windom Area head coach Ron Wendorff was predictably modest Monday night after notching his 500th career victory. “It’s because I’ve been...

Zach Hacker: Amateur baseball is still special
Zach Hacker Daily Globe sports writer A couple years ago while I was living in Kansas, I wrote a column about something I truly missed about living in Minnesota: amateur baseball. Town team baseball is something that is pretty unique about the Land of 10,000 Lakes. There are...

Zach Hacker: Football starting early this year
Zach Hacker Daily Globe sports reporter I learned Wednesday that my summer will end a bit earlier than I expected. Kind of. The fact the calendar turned to July prompted me to begin thinking about fall sports. When I looked online to see if area fall schedules were posted, I...

Zach Hacker: There's a little scoundrel in all of us
I was recently watching Ken Burns’ famed miniseries “Baseball” when I heard one of the best quotes I’ve heard in a while. Early on the series, historian Shelby Foote says, “The great lesson in sports is supposed to be that you not only learn the elation of winning, but...

Zach Hacker: Yes fans, free throws really do matter
Let me just preface this whole thing by saying I was never a star basketball player. I know, I know. My rotund, 5-foot-8 frame suggests otherwise; but basketball just really wasn’t my sport. I always enjoyed playing it, but once I hit ninth grade I was a good five or six inches...

At approximately 3:05 p.m. Sunday I sent a tweet that read: “Vikings are gonna blow this because that’s what the Vikings do.” Buffalo’s game-winning drive hadn’t even started yet. The sad thing is, I wasn’t saying it as some sort of reverse-jinx on Buffalo or attempt...
