Dallas Sports Anchor Delivers Perfect Speech to Michael Sam's Critics

DALLAS -- Have you heard of Dale Hansen? In case you haven't, he's a well-known TV sports anchor for the ABC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth. A couple of days ago, he took a couple of minutes to break down the negative reaction to Missouri defensive end -- and NFL prospect -- Michael Sam coming out as gay.
