dalehansenDale Hansen is about as old-school a sports journo as you’re likely to encounter, so when he delivered an opinion piece on Monday night about Michael Sam’s decision to come out, he shocked a lot of people — in the best possible way. The video went viral … and it will land him, today, on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show (airing at 3 p.m. locally).

Before you tune into Ellen, though, you can read his commentary, which appears in this week’s issue of Dallas Voice, or watch the video.

Thanks again, Dale. You’re what being an ally is all about.

And check out our cover story about Sam. It’s historic, guys.
