Long before he was the main sports anchor for the CBS affiliate in DFW, Babe Laufenberg was the guy whom John Elway had to beat out at Stanford.

That was a long time ago. Before color TV.

Then Babe went to Indiana where his head coach was Lee Corso. Babe played in the NFL before he became a sportscaster, and a regular in DFW for decades. He has been next to Brad Sham as the radio duo for the Cowboys for ... a long time. Just go with that.

In this latest edition of The Big Mac Podcast, Babe is the featured guest.

Among the list of subjects covered:

Babe’s career that included backing up two of the most prolific passers in football history, Tony Romo’s entry into the booth, the current state of the Dallas Cowboys, the current state of sports media, and Bruce Springsteen. Among other items.

It should be noted that this 56-minute podcast could have been five times longer. When Babe and I have the time we can talk until the all of the air in the room is gone.
