TheDanPatrickShow YouTube Channel video: Bob Costas on The Dan Patrick Show 4/12/13, re Jackie Robinson's legacy, Branch Rickey's initiative and the new "42" film
by Brian Helgeland, starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford; Dodgers-Padres brawl, Carlos Quentin and Zack Greinke injury; Costas blasts CBS Sports' long history of censoring racism and sexism at The Masters Golf tourney in Augusta, GA. Uploaded April 12, 2013. http://youtu.be/npWu09W4rCE
