    Hansen has driven me crazy for years (not in a good way). I tuned him out eons ago, But in looking for info on this story, I came across another one from 2011. I am totally reevaluating my opinion of him.

    sports anchor Dale Hansen of WFAA-TV (Channel 8) last night showed a heartwarming video montage with Thank God for Kids by the Oak Ridge Boys as its soundrtack.

    Aftwerward, Hansen’s commentary took an unexpected turn. He talked about the Penn State sex scandal and about people who stand silent instead of speaking up for the young victims of sex abuse.

    Then, his voice beginning to crack, Hansen said:

    “We all know a victim. … You might not think you do, but I know you do. Because you all know me.”

    Watch the video to hear Hansen’s story.

    well crap I can't figure out how to imbed the video. Here is the link to it.

      There are two moments in the last 5 years where Dale Hansen was watchable.  You've now seen both of them.  

      •  You are totally right. I didn't read that (1+ / 0-)

        paragraph. My apologies for shorting you in the reading.

        I can't disagree with

        There are two moments in the last 5 years where Dale Hansen was watchable.  You've now seen both of them.  
        because I haven't watched him even once in those 5 years.

        However, those 2 video moments are incredible. All the more so, because he's the last person I would expect to have made them.

        Again I apologize for responding without reading your whole post.

        Tacky of me.
