Texas sportscaster Dale Hansen became a viral sensation earlier this week when he came out in support of openly gay college football star Michael Sam. Dale topped off his big week by making a stop by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat with Ellen in an interview that will air today. When Ellen said that she and the LGBT community need more heterosexual people to come out in support of their causes, Dale said, "[People] might automatically assume that an old, fat, white guy from Texas would be opposed to that, and I think we're slowly breaking down the barriers from both sides."
