FDH Lounge Show #108: June 30, 2010

By Rick Morris

While a last-minute “act of God” put us in best-of mode last week, we’re back in all our glory this week with a brand-new and typically all-over-the-place edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on as the calendar hits the half-over mark in the first year of the new decade [BTW, for your best look back at the old decade and your best look ahead at the “teens,” check out our free eBook DISSECTING THE DECADES: THE FDH LOUNGE LOOKS BACK AND AHEAD AT THE FIRST 20 YEARS OF THE NEW MILLENIUM].

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 bring in a man who has climbed through the journalism ranks to become the CEO of a thriving Internet television network. Jim Louderback heads up Revision3, which is one of the entities most responsible for the growing convergence of the Web and traditional television.

At the top of Hour Two, the man who has always been our favorite film critic, Ben Lyons, will be joined (schedule permitting) by a legend of the reviewing business – his own father, Jeffrey Lyons! The summer movie season, the half-year in review in movies, a revisiting of our discussion with him last time about the greatest sports movies … we’ll hit them all. From there, we preview the chaos that will break loose at midnight as Evan Roberts of WFAN in New York comes on to talk all things July 1 and NBA free agency.

Hour Three starts with charter FDH Lounge Dignitary Nate Noy and a breakdown of what has been a very unpredictable World Cup. Then, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER then wraps up the show in its new timeslot of the final segment with the fantasy hot dog eating draft. Yes, we went there! Speaking of our fantasy division, remember that HOCKEY DRAFTOLOGY 2010 and HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2010 deliver your best coverage of the NHL Entry Draft and NBA Draft, respectively.

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
