Wanna see something cool? I know where you can jump in a time machine.

Back to the days of 57-cent gas. Back to the days of Kern Tipps. Back to the good ol’ Southwest Conference.

Giving props to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame’s new Southwest Conference wing which will open later this summer in Waco, Fox Sports Net Southwest is showing old football highlights, starting with the conference’s 1963 season and Texas’ National Championship tonight at 10. FSN’s SWC Legends is a series of 30-minute adaptations of old highlights, spiced with new interviews.

It was a better day when Tipps called the SWC and this guy called the Olympics. Re-live it. Sorta. -- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
