FDH Lounge Show #106: June 9, 2010

By Rick Morris

Episode #106 of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on exemplifies, as always, the notion that “nothing is off-topic.”

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we welcome back one of our newest enshrined Dignitaries, New York blogger/lawyer/occasional sports talk show host Steve Kallas. He is always available to weigh in on matters at the intersection of sports, ethics and the law. As such, among other issues, he will break down baseball’s perfect game that wasn’t and the ongoing Lawrence Taylor legal follies.

Around the top of Hour Two, we bring you a very special segment that we taped for this show last week. On Friday’s episode of Head to Head with Walt and Barbershop Jay on STN, The FDH Lounge came in for a jointly conducted interview with NFL Films President Steve Sabol. We covered a lot of ground with him about many aspects of NFL Films operations and you will hear the interview in its entirety. Also, Lounge Dignitary and Head to Head co-Host Walt Payton will be with us for this show and he’ll share his thoughts on what we learned.

Since Walt is a big fan of Breaking Bad (whose lead character is also named Walt, coincidentally!), we’ll then get his thoughts on what is often referred to these days as “the best show on television” as this one steams towards its Season Three conclusion at the speed of an Aztek about to run down two drug dealers. At that point, we bring in a fascinating guest, longtime multi-platform journalist Diane Dimond. She is ALWAYS in the midst of big stories involving celebrities, big news stories and anything else the gossips at the water cooler are discussing. Gary Coleman, Lindsay Lohan, Jacko, the oil spill ... nothing will be off-limits with this guest.

Then, we'll briefly recap the hottest and most shocking pro wrestling angle to end a TV show since the Monday Night Wars ended nine years ago, the NXT “invasion” on Raw this week. Taken together with Sunday night’s Breaking Bad big twist at the end, summer TV is off to an amazing start for what is generally a time to pause and regroup. From there, NBA Finals talk, the Summer of LeBron and all things hoops move to the forefront of our discussion.

THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER kicks off Hour Three with an early look at the 2010 FDH fantasy football draft board, position by position. Then, a truncated edition of THE GOON SQUAD (which, after all, is going directly up against Game Six) breaks down the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Finals in particular.

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. Also, you can now catch THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on
