This is Kind of Inspiring

An old time Texas sportscaster, Dale Hansen, who looks to be in his mid-60s, slams anonymous NFL execs for questioning whether the league wants openly gay Missouri defensive end Michael Sam. What gives it special poignance is that Hansen is open about the fact that he himself is not without some lingering discomfort about homosexuality …

He went on to slam NFL executives for saying Sam’s prospects would be hurt in the draft because he came out as gay, while being perfectly fine with drafting players who “lie to police trying to cover up a murder” and “beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs.”

“I’m not always comfortable when a man tells me he’s gay. I don’t understand his world,” Hansen admitted. “But I do understand that he’s part of mine.”
