Even as someone who has gone on record more than once as being supportive of a gay athlete coming out publicly, I’ve gotten pretty fatigued already with the Michael Sam story. Either he’s going to get drafted or he’s not. I hope he does. I don’t know if he will. If he doesn’t, we’ll all know why.
But this 135-second oral essay by Dale Hansen, a TV sports anchor in Dallas, is too good not to pass along. I was genuinely moved by his words.
I’m not even going to try to write about the Sam situation after seeing it. Dale Hansen said it better than I possibly could.
