The Dallas TV Sports Guy Who Took a Stand While Bay Area Sports Media Went Silent
I often get ripped for complaining about Sports Media People here who live in a bubble and think the World revolves around balls and strikes. It takes a national tragedy, sometimes, for them to get their collective head out of ass.
Thank God for Dale Hansen --a veteran Dallas TV Sports Broadcaster who took off his batting gloves and spoke on-air about the Dallas Police Shootings and Police killings of Black Citizens in Louisiana and Minnesota.
The video, courtesy WFAA, is above. Watch it.
Whether you agree with Hansen's takes is besides the point; Hansen chose to talk about what everyone, not just people in Dallas, are thinking and talking about. It was the right thing to do and Hansen didn't miss a beat.
Too bad we don't have that sports figure in the Bay Area.
