FDH Lounge Show #81: November 25, 2009

By Rick Morris

After our vacation last week, we return tonight with Episode #81 of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on SportsTalkNetwork.com) for our Thanksgiving Eve blowout.

We lead off with This Week in The FDH Lounge and our Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries, then we bring back one of our all-time favorite guests: second-generation Ziggy cartoonist Tom Wilson. Check out our coverage of Tom’s ZIGGY MILLION DOLLAR LIVESTRONG CHALLENGE, because we will be talking about this great initiative to fight cancer, as well as everything going on in the world of Ziggy. Then, towards the end of Hour One, our FDH Lounge Pigskin Report examines the most recent events in college and pro football, as well as our latest FDH LOUNGE Power Rankings.

Shortly into Hour Two, we welcome back another guest we’ve enjoyed in the past, Ken Palmer of the Scout.com site The Giants Insider. He’ll have observations on that team’s huge win from last week and the overall state of the NFC playoff chase, as well as the other team he covers – the New Jersey Devils – and his alma mater (Penn State) being on the BCS bubble at the moment. Then, the return of our FDH Panel Question offers the Dignitaries an interesting query that people have wondered since the expansion of a few years ago: Why is ACC football such a disappointment?

In Hour Three, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER breaks down NFL Week 12 and we then bring on KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini for his thoughts on the fantasy football landscape. We wrap with our other show-within-a-show, THE GOON SQUAD, and a look at the present NHL standings as well as a preview of one of the big early games of the season: the Thanksgiving Eve showdown in San Jose between the Sharks and the Hawks (now with 100% more Hossa!). Also, with the Olympic break mere weeks away, we’ll examine the remarks of Team Canada Executive Director Steve Yzerman (for the record, FDH Managing Editor Rick Morris’s favorite athlete of all time). He indicated that his squad may see a fair number of combos at both forward and defense that have played together in the NHL. That seems to make a lot of sense.

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!

I was hoping to hear Tom Wilson's interview. I can't seem to find it in the archives. :(
