Doug Wolter: Gender equity has come a long way, indeed
I’m not sure I know what to make of the drop in football participation among Minnesota high schools, but who can help but be encouraged at...

Doug Wolter: Ban the shift? Why limit defensive strategy?
Major league baseball’s tinkering with the rules has, in most cases, cheapened the experience. I refer, of course, to instant replay and to the outlawing of runner-catcher collisions. In keeping with trends, then, it is only logical to assume that sometime in the near future MLB...

Doug Wolter: Twins' roll of the dice has come up snake eyes
For most major league baseball fans, every season ushers in four stages of emotion. First, optimism. Then hope. Then reality. And finally, resignation. The majority of Minnesota Twins fans, I think, are hovering at the brink of stage four. They may have been there already, and though...

Doug Wolter: Traveling team baseball, 7-year-old style
I’m old enough now to wax poetically about how great it used to be in “the good ol’ days.” But I’m slowly figuring out that what worked in the 1960s doesn’t necessarily work so well in the 20-teens.

Doug Wolter: Closing the chapter on spring
We are headlong into summer now. But before we get too far, there are just a few things I want to say about the spring high school sports season -- and a few other things I want to get off my chest. First, a whine.

Doug Wolter: Sports betting gone wild: What are the odds?
I’m no constitutional expert, but my immediate thought this week after the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for legalized sports betting nationwide was to wonder why, apparently, the major sports leagues -- MLB, NBA, NFL, NCAA, etc., etc. -- have no say on the topic.

Doug Wolter: Everybody's an NFL draft expert
BY DOUG WOLTER The Globe sports editor In 2007 I wrote a sports column for the Mankato Free Press saying that the Minnesota Vikings should consider drafting Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn with the seventh selection of the NFL draft. The column was picked up by the widely-read...

Doug Wolter: Should we just play wiffle ball instead?
This is a column about random thoughts. Trapped here, as I am, in the dead of winter, I have only my imagination to keep me company as I dream of green grass and the sound of baseball bats striking pitched balls on ball fields. That crisp echo, I remember from happier days, is among...

Doug Wolter: The missing piece? Don't even say it
I can certainly understand why the Minnesota Vikings are extra sensitive these days. The recent signing of free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins caused a sensation on the sports channels, with expert after expert saying that Cousins represents “the missing piece,” and that it’s...

DW COLUMN WORTHINGTON -- I remember the conversation well. It was moments after the Trojan Classic holiday tournament loss against Sibley East, 80-58, and the Worthington Trojans boys basketball team looked as if it were utterly out of answers.

Fate seems to favor the Minnesota Vikings this year. It’s as if Nature itself has conspired to clear the decks of all opposition as the NFC Central champions begin their drive toward the Super Bowl. But can it be too perfect to be true? Vikings fans, who are numbingly familiar with...
