FDH Lounge Show #87: January 13, 2010

By Rick Morris

Three years ago this week, The Great American Radio Show came to Internet TV. We have proved time and time again that the adage of "nothing is off-topic" is no mere exaggeration. Now, our 87th episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com) proves it again.

After our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge and The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries, we welcome in longtime New York (and onetime NBC) broadcaster Len Berman, author of the great book (with a companion CD) THE GREATEST MOMENTS IN SPORTS. From there, we take the occasion of our third anniversary to revisit one of our earlier Lounge shows with a Conspiracy Theory segment about the McGwire-Sosa home run chase of 1998. Dignitary Nate Noy shared his theory that Major League Baseball tampered with the special hologram balls used down the stretch for these hitters. We'll replay the 10-minute tape, then take another look with Nate in light of McGwire's "shocking" confession this week.

At the top of Hour Two, our roundtable panel to discuss the Baseball Hall of Fame voting convenes: ESPN Radio personality Ed Randall and Newsday reporter Ken Davidoff. Then, we debut our FDH Spotlight Website segment with a real doozy: This Is Why You're Fat.

After that, we start THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER a bit earlier than usual as we hold our annual fantasy tennis draft and then start our "fantasy football season in review" by looking at big developments, position by position, with KFFL.com Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini.

We close as always with THE GOON SQUAD and a look at the present NHL standings as well as a last look back at The Winter Classic and more of our ramping-up coverage of the amazing forthcoming Olympic hockey tournament.

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!
