FDH Lounge Show #104: May 26, 2010

By Rick Morris

Variety and fun will abound as always on the 104th episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on [By the way, keep in mind that you can now get your daily dose of Lounge goodies via THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT with classic interviews and panel roundtables dating back to our debut show on January 14, 2007. It airs daily on STN from 6-7 PM EDT.]

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we start off super-strong with a panel reviewing the recent TV upfronts which previewed the fall lineups. Our go-to guy on TV and technology, Simon Applebaum of the Tomorrow Will Be Televised podcast and blog will be joined by newly minted FDH Lounge Dignitary Lloyd Carroll of the Queens Chronicle and countless other New York publications. They’ll talk about the next year of television programming and how the Google TV innovation will help change how we view the old boob tube.

In Hour Two, Newsday’s outstanding sports media columnist “The Watchdog” Neil Best joins us to talk about the winning bid for New York/New Jersey for the 2014 Super Bowl. After that, we stay on our positive roll with reporter Eric Fisher of Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily as we discuss the aforementioned Big Apple Super Bowl, the role of the fragile global economy on the sports landscape, a look back at the Olympics and ahead to the World Cup and much, much more.

Speaking of the World Cup, we start Hour Three with THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER and our once-every-four-years World Cup mock team draft. Draft board and suggested league guidelines are available here. Paulo Pincaro from will be our special guest expert and he will draft with us. Then we close with THE GOON SQUAD and an in-depth examination of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Finals are upon us with the David vs. Goliath matchup of Philadelphia and Chicago. Do the Flyers have any magic left in that slingshot? Our favorite hockey expert, Russ Cohen of Sportsology and Hockeyology, is actually based in Philly, so his insight is especially valuable in this instance. We’ll also touch on the icon Steve Yzerman leaving behind the Winged Wheel to take over the helm of the battered Tampa Bay Lightning and we’ll talk about this recent GSP vs Georges Laraque wrestling match.

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!
