LaVoi appears on WCCO-TV's Good Question to discuss violence in sports

LaVoiN-2010.jpgFormer Minnesota Wild hockey player Derek Boogaard, who died at age 28 last May, was the focus of a New York Times article last Sunday on the degenerative brain injury he suffered that was caused by repeated blows to the head. WCCO-TV's Good Question Monday evening asked, "Why do we like violence in sports?" Dr. Nicole La Voi, Kinesiology lecturer and associate director of the Tucker Center, was interviewed for the story. She said violence in sports has become a form of entertainment for fans. See the interview here:
