A short, but profound, segment regarding Michael Sam, a potential NFL draft pick, and good player.
Dale Hansen is a sportscaster in my hometown of Dallas. Everyone was amazed by this. One of the most profound and powerful things he’s ever said in his decades of being a sportscaster here. Two snaps up in Z formation for Dale!
While off-topic for a #Vintage blog on the face of it, perhaps it’s a good reminder that certain highly negative aspects of the past are often hidden behind the smiling faces and glowing promises of the old advertisements and photographs people like me post. As Mr. Hansen so succinctly points out, certain things of the past need to be left behind…and this certainly includes silly worries over being tackled by or sharing a locker room with somebody of a different sexual orientation.

This is the first entry in my new series of personal material, the Sunday Scan. While not as old as most of the items I intend to post for the Sunday Scan…well, it doesn’t get much more “Americana” than sprint cars and modifieds racing at a small dirt track on a Friday night. To be honest, I chose this one to be first because I do not have much experience with scanning and this was an easy one with which to start. I hope my readers will enjoy this series as it should end up covering a lot of different subjects and eras.
I would normally not make a post for such a commercial Tumblr blog but this is definitely a well deserved exception. If you like sports photographs, nobody has or still does photos as good as Sports Illustrated. They have brought to Tumblr the SI Photo Blog to share their massive archive of pictorial sports history. Form what has been posted so far, any sports fan should give this at least a look if not a Follow.
