FDH Lounge Show #122: November 3, 2010

By Rick Morris

As is so often the case, on Episode #122 of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on your FDH Lounge Dignitaries will be hitting a great many things of interest on the current landscape.

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we recap the political events of this week’s elections and take our first look ahead to 2012. In a way, the show comes full circle with this conversation because Episode #1 on January 14, 2007 featured our first look at what was already an earlier-than-ever presidential election process for 2008. We refer you also to our FDH Lounge midterm election predictions and Election Day real-time ticker, both of which stand as interesting resources for looking back at the end of a wild campaign. And speaking of voting, we’ll also touch briefly on next week’s 4th FDH Lounge Pantheon, one of the highlights of our year.

Then, at about the three-quarters mark of Hour One, we speak to one of the most successful marketing executives in the country: Subway CMO Tony Pace. We’re trying to get his boy Jared on with him! Jared will be running in this weekend’s New York Marathon. That’s just one angle of many successful marketing efforts by the company in recent years. What is the process for moving these ideas forward? We’ll find out.

In Hour Two, The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report breaks down the Randy Moss madness and the big surprises of the first half of the NFL season. Following that, our World Series recap will get into the “hows” and “whys” of what we just saw in the Fall Classic and set the stage for a hugely active Hot Stove “season.”

We start Hour Three in a huge way, with one of the most famous figures in the field of boxing training and broadcasting: ESPN’s Teddy Atlas (who is also with NBC Sports as the lead commentator during each Olympic interval). We’ll talk about his career, a huge upcoming event for the organization that he runs – the Theodore A. Atlas Foundation – and his meaningful book Atlas: From the Streets to the Ring: A Son’s Struggle to Become a Man. Then, THE FANTASY DRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER closes out the show with our big NFL Week 9 preview. We remind you also to consult our new fantasy – and non-fantasy – hoops guide, FANTASY HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2010. Click and enjoy! Also, remember that for your football needs, you should be using our FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2010 as your guide through the season, along with our weekly fantasy newsletter at The Blog – which, during the football season, has your list of which players to start each week.
