Our job

Let me ask you a simple question. I’d like you to improve the Doug and Wolf show.

On days like Monday, what do you want from our show? Would you rather us make an attempt to ignore the events of Boston because you already know sports is an escape from reality? Do you want to us to balance informing you with news while also talking about the “sports” items of the day? The last option is for us to go totally news with our own sports bend to the subject matter.

Monday’s show was so difficult because I’m human. I’m a civilian patriot. I’m scared for the future of our country but refuse to live in fear. I worry about what my kids are thinking. I grieve for the parents of dead children through the acts of terror. However, my job calls for me to be passionate and resolute about my feelings on Tiger Woods. I think he should have been disqualified at the Masters and on a day like that, I just don’t care. I struggle to muster up the conviction that the Masters matter when children die in terrorist attacks. My problem is, do the terrorists win when I allow them to stop me from doing my job that day? Yet, if I go on as if nothing has happened, I feel so heartless and inhuman.

I’d like you to email doug@ktar.com, tweet @doug620 or simply comment at the bottom if you listened on Monday to the show. What did you think of the show? What were you looking for that day? Did the show deliver for you?

In Carson Palmer I trust

Every $19.95 invention grabbed my attention. If I buy now, I can get my offer doubled. However, this offer is not available in stores! From age 5 to 14, almost every time an ad came on TV with an incredible idea, my dad would say, “If the offer is too good to believe, don’t.” Dad, […]

Great does not make Todd Gurley right for the Arizona Cardinals

A completely healthy Todd Gurley will be a great player in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals should not draft Todd Gurley.
