FDH Lounge Show #45: February 11, 2009

By Rick Morris

This Wednesday's 45th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on SportsTalkNetwork.com (7-10 PM EST) proves yet again our adage of "nothing is off-topic."

After the Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries, we welcome in Newsday sportswriter Neil Best for his perspective on events he has witnessed recently in New York: the LBJ/MSG supergame, Joe Torre's tell-all book and the ARod "confession" meltdown. From there, we discuss all things football with NFL Films Senior Producer Ray Didinger. Ray is an accomplished author, Football Hall of Fame writer and broadcaster and he will be on to discuss many aspects of the game, past and present.

Then, well into Hour Two, we delve into The FDH Lounge News Nuggets: Chris Brown behaving in a manner as crappy as his music, a powerful congressman slipping up and revealing for the first time how close we came to a global financial collapse in September and ESPN gutlessly suspending Scott Van Pelt for telling the truth about Bud Selig.

We wrap up the Hour Two with a look at the opening of spring training with FDH Baseball Correspondant Tim Foust -- and of course, we'll talk about the ARod scandal. Tim will stay with us for THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER in Hour Three when we talk fantasy baseball and unveil our brand-new Ultimate Quantitative Baseline statistic for MLB '09. After that, The Insider will take one more look at NASCAR before the big Daytona race on Sunday and then reveal the results of our 2009 fantasy golf mock draft. In our final half hour, on THE GOON SQUAD, we talk about the Sean Avery/Rangers story, the Jagr/Oilers blockbuster potential possibility and the looming trading deadline with CBC's Craig Simpson pronouncing 25 of the league's 30 teams in some state of playoff contention.

It's a loaded program, to be sure, but it's just another day in the life of The FDH Lounge! Watch us live Wednesday night or listen to our archives on-demand at STN.
