FDH Lounge Show #108: June 23, 2010

By Rick Morris

EDIT: Due to the proverbial "act of God," it turns out we are in best-of mode tonight. We apologize and look forward to delivering Episode #108 next week, Wednesday June 30.

THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on features more of its trademark extreme variety on the 108th edition of the program.

We open as usual with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge before we welcome in MLB Network analyst “The Mayor” Sean Casey, a three-time All-Star during his playing career and a man long lauded as one of the nicest and most charitable people in sports. We’ll get his views on the present landscape of the game and catch up on his work with various causes, including Labels are for Jars.

Then we bring in Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Rolie! How many musicians get to play with one legendary act? And he’s played with two: Santana and Journey – to say nothing of his work with other bands, including the current Gregg Rolie Band. 40 years after performing at Woodstock, he’s still got new and exciting developments going on all the time.

At the start of Hour Two, THE GOON SQUAD breaks down the NHL Awards and NHL Entry Draft with the help of our new guide HOCKEY DRAFTOLOGY 2010. Then, we get into what has been a very unpredictable World Cup. Upsets and controversies have abounded and we’ll assess it for you before our US Open recap. Hour Three starts with a look back at the recently-concluded NBA Finals and Thursday’s NBA Draft with, you guessed it, our new guide HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2010!

THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER then wraps up the show in its new timeslot of the final segment with a look at the just-unveiled 2010-2011 “Ultimate Stat” UQB numbers for fantasy hockey. We crunch these numbers in each of the major fantasy sports, so in addition to taking an early look at the puck landscape for next year, we’ll also take another overview of the concept itself and how our statistic really does live up to the billing of Ultimate Quantitative Baseline.

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
