C'mon, Richie, How About them Desperados?

You think you're in a sports drought? Try being Dale Hansen. All it takes is alcohol.

What you’ve felt and what KTCK-AM's (1310, The Ticket) Mike Rhyner sensed, Dale Hansen confirmed last night. It’s official: Local sports are in an extreme state of suck.

You knew it would be lean around these parts when neither the Stars nor Mavs made it to Cinco de Mayo. But we figured something would sprout. Terrell Owens would pop off. Mark Cuban would blow up. The Rangers would win a series. But nope, nada.

“Do we ever remember it being this bad?” The Hardline's co-host offered rhetorically earlier this week. The answer came to me last night while I was helping my wife finish a scrapbook. Kill me, kill me now. Then it got worse.

Hansen, the WFAA-Channel 8 anchor and long-time lightning rod of controversy -- or at least some smart-ass opinion to keep you awake -- dug painfully deep into his bullpen at 10:25 p.m. on Wednesday. Would you believe...UT-Arlington women’s basketball?

Saw it with my own bored, bleary eyes. With pretty much a straight face, Hansen conducted an interview -- live, no less -- with new Lady Mavericks coach and former Mansfield High School legend Samantha Morrow. I mean, that’s a nice coup for my alma mater and all, but is there any way in hell we make it to the fall?
