FDH Lounge Show #75: September 30, 2009

By Rick Morris

Tonight’s “diamond anniversary” 75th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT) will feature more of the variety that has become our trademark.

After The Opening Statements of The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we welcome in one of our few in-studio guests in the show’s history: Cavs New Media Sales Director Mike Maleski. In addition to his work with the Cavs’ standard Internet apparatus, he is also involved with one of the only team-owned social media outlets in sports, Team owner Dan Gilbert has positioned the franchise as one of the cutting-edge organizations in all of pro sports when it comes to embracing technology and Mike will be here to break it all down for us. Then, we stay on the Cavs, but with a different slant: Kris Belman, director of the documentary about the early days of Lebron James, More Than a Game, will come on to discuss the debut of the movie, which is about 48 hours away.

Because of the circumstances of tonight’s show, we need to bump the traditional format of Hour Three up one hour: first with THE GOON SQUAD and our comprehensive 2009-2010 NHL season preview, which will partially involve drawing upon FANTASY HOCKEY DRAFTOLOGY 2009. We are joined by 100 Rangers Greats co-author Russ Cohen, also of Sportsology and Card Corner Club. Then, on THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER, we preview NFL Week 4, the first of the bye weeks, before comparing notes towards the end with KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini. Of course, our weekly football thoughts on this show only serve as a preview for each weekly Fantasy Drafthelp newsletter at the Fantasy Drafthelp blog.

Hour Three will be very special for the diamond anniversary show: an extended look at the MLB season that was, and more importantly, a look ahead to October. FDH baseball analysts Tim Foust and Ken Detwiler will be with us for all of the baseball hot topics.

It’s going to be a great program and we hope you can be a part of our audience. As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us now on iTunes!
