K) Bob Wojnowski

Bob “Wojo” Wojnowski has covered sports in Detroit since before the Internet was invented (but long after the telegraph was invented).

Wojo has written for the Detroit News since 1989, and has covered pretty much every major sporting event in the U.S. — seven Olympics, numerous Super Bowls and Final Fours, the World Series, four Red Wings Stanley Cup championships, three Pistons championships and a healthy dose of bowl games.

For 14 years, Wojo was the chubbier half of the “Stoney and Wojo” afternoon radio show on WDFN. He also can be seen on Fox 2 Sundays before Lions game, Sunday nights at the roundtable, and in frequent “accidental” walk-bys behind unsuspecting anchors.

Wojo lives in Farmington Hills, about a mile from a Tim Horton’s. He tries to inform, enlighten and entertain, not necessarily in that order. He considers humor essential to healthy living, along with buffalo wings.

He has lived in Michigan most of his life, except for the first four years (born in Buffalo, N.Y.) and six years in Florida as an aspiring journalist.

Yes, he leaves his Christmas tree up year-round. Don’t ask.

Tigers’ Trade Stirs Inevitable Whining About John Smoltz

I call it the Smoltz Syndrome. Any time the Tigers trade a top pitching prospect for immediate help, the gnawing fear returns for some.

Tigers’ Hitting Or Fielding — Which Is More Aggravating?

By: Bob Wojnowski Unfortunately, it’s a fair debate, and one that won’t go away. Which aspect of the Tigers is more annoying (or frustrating, or disappointing): Their offense or their defense?   Now, think about […]

Tigers’ Gerald Laird Has Some Cautionary Words

He’s the backup catcher, and he’s been hurt. But Gerald Laird has been around the bases a few times, now in his second stint with the Tigers.

For Leyland And Tigers, It’s Lineup Roulette

Jim Leyland was calm. He was measured. And he was clear: If there was another way to shake up his slumbering lineup, he’d do it.

Big Ten Picks Its Poison In Playoff Format

It’s on the way, like it or not. College football will have a four-team playoff system, and now the raging debate is who should host the games.

Ease Your Pain; Take Solace In Tigers’ Starting Pitchers

You want me to say it. I know you do. I’m essentially a trained seal, and this is about the time I’d be bellowing something about panic in a place called Tigertown.

Tigers Spend A Night At The Heartbreak Dotel

Blame Jim Leyland. Blame Ryan Raburn. Blame Delmon Young. Heck, blame Brandon Inge again, if you wish.

Vegas Isn’t As Giddy About The Lions’ Playoff Chances

We waited through free-agency. We waited through the draft, which was slightly controversial for the Lions. And while rosters certainly aren’t set yet, there won’t be a lot more movement.

Hazy, Crazy Decision For Lions’ Mayhew In NFL Draft

It’s easy to be all law-and-orderly and make this declaration to NFL prospects: Sit or get off the pot.

Wings Hope To Make A Zach Attack

The Red Wings were eliminated early again, and because I like to be helpful, I already laid out the ideal off-season plan for GM Ken Holland.

Leyland Gambles, Verlander Wins, Everyone Exhales

I’m sure Jim Leyland loves managing Justin Verlander. Who wouldn’t? He’s the best pitcher in baseball, equal parts supreme talent and dogged workhorse.

The NHL’s Punishment Standard Is A Joke

I know that’s not a newsflash to most, but it sure has Red Wings fans riled up.

Should We Call Cabrera and Fielder Miggy And Biggy?

Are we prematurely hyped? Of course we are. Do the Tigers present cause for the hype? Of course they do.

Blaming Jim Leyland Is Nonsense

Lots of baseball debates are fun, even more fun when beer-fueled. But we’re one game into the Tigers season and we’ve already stumbled across the dumbest debate ever.

The Brandon Inge Unhinged Binge

I suppose it’s time to accept that the Brandon Inge Unhinged Binge will never end — at least not in our lifetimes.

Mark Hollis Sparks Tweetgate

College basketball may not stir as much passion around Detroit as the pro sports, but at least it’s heating up.
