Scott Hanson is something of a low-level national treasure. The host of the NFL’s RedZone channel is an absolute machine. The guy works constantly for hours on Sundays with no breaks, bouncing from game-to-game and keeping fans informed. He’s fantastic at it, but even more amazing is the fact that he had a remarkable streak going that was broken on Sunday.
Yes, Hanson was finally forced to take a bathroom break after four years. That’s right, he’s worked from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET on Sundays during the NFL season for four years without having to relieve himself. And on Sunday, that streak finally ended.
Hanson — who has hosted RedZone since 2009 — took to Twitter to announce the end of his miraculous streak:
It was a hell of a run Scott. I’m not even kidding when I say this has to go down as one of the greatest sports-related streaks of all-time. Cal Ripken Jr., Brett Favre, Joe DiMaggio, Scott Hanson. It’s on that level.
