FDH Lounge Show #43: January 21, 2009

By Rick Morris

On the 43rd edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesday, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com), we will coincidentally comment on the departure from office of our 43rd president – but we’ll also do much more than that!

After the Opening Statements of The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge, we welcome back our good friend The Scout Ken Becks from Gridiron Evaluations. Since we last chatted with Ken, NFL Draft positions have been set, juniors have had to decide on whether or not they were coming out and we have seen the East-West Shrine Game and the week of practice leading up to it. The Scout will help us take an overview of the process at this stage. Then, we will conduct a little “PWI Overtime” as FDH Managing Partner Rick Morris finishes unloading the Pro Wrestling Insider email inbox. Morris will be the special guest host of PRO WRESTLING INSIDER (5-6 PM EST on STN) and will read and discuss the emails that don’t get a chance to be read during the jam-packed Royal Rumble preview edition of PWI. Towards the end of Hour One and in the first part of Hour Two, we bring you The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report as we review Championship Sunday and take our first look ahead to Super Bowl 43, also known as the Cowher Succession Bowl.

Our remaining time in Hour Two will be devoted to a review of the Inaugural events of the past week, a brief retracing of how we got to this point, and a look ahead to the early days of the new administration.

As previously mentioned, Hour Three is given over to our two “show-within-a-show” segments. On THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER (9:00-9:30 PM EST), we unveil for the first time on the air our 2009 Fantasy NASCAR Ultimate Quantitative Baseline Power Rankings, telling you what to look for in terms of driver success on different kinds of tracks. Also, we’ll start breaking down some early fantasy football advice for 2009. Then, on THE GOON SQUAD (9:30-10:00 PM EST), we review the latest FDH NHL Power Rankings, then we preview this weekend’s NHL All-Star Game with particular attention to the two rosters.

In a week where talk of change has been all the rage, it’s comforting to know that some things never change. Death, taxes and the quality of The FDH Lounge will continue to endure through any number of presidential terms and we’ll keep proving it this Wednesday night.
