I recently saw a video of Dallas Sportscaster Dale Hansen make what I consider to be an excellent statement about recently came out NFL player Michael Sam. Back in the aerly 90’s, when I was just out of college and still living there, Dale Hansen was well-known to go to this bar, Louie’s, and get bombed before going to the station to give his 10pm Sportscast, kinda bombed. I was a regular at Louie’s, and witnessed this more than once.
Of course I figured that Dale was a local Homer, closed-minded blowhard moron, who would never in a million years make this sort of statement. Obviously I misjudged him.
So…what (mildly) famous person, of whom you had a negative opinion, did something to change your mind about them? Specifics welcome, positive or negative.
