Another big milestone is upon us: Episode #125 of THE FDH LOUNGE (Tuesdays, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com) – and it happens to be our first one since making the move from Wednesday nights.
After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and This Week in The FDH Lounge, we review some of the high points of the first 125 programs and preview some segments to be added shortly – such as “Those Damn Hipsters with Kyle Ross.” This precedes an interview with MLB Network analyst and Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Tom Verducci about Hot Stove Baseball. Then we will single out for encore play one of our favorite moments between the 100th and 125th show: our epic conversation with “The Mayor,” former MLB All-Star and MLB Network broadcaster Sean Casey.
As Hour Two starts, we segue into another look at the Hot Stove Baseball season of transactions before playing our second annual Hot Stove Predictions Game. Did we say second annual? Apparently so. Well, the next segment is our second annual Time Person of the Year Fantasy Draft. Guidelines and draft board are here. Ah, but we’re not done with the participatory fun at that point as we get to our fifth annual College Hoops Team Fantasy Draft. Guidelines and draft board are here.
Then, THE FANTASY DRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER closes out the show with our big NFL Week 13 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 FantasyDrafthelp.com Blog – which, during the football season, has your list of which players to start each week.
Later in Hour Three, we prove yet again that you can never say “I’ve done everything for you, you’ve done nothing for me,” as we welcome in one of our more famous guests in the history of the show, singer-actor Rick Springfield. His strikingly personal memoir Late, Late at Night lays bare his demons, especially a decades-long battle with depression that was conducted away from the public eye. We’ll talk about all facets of his evolving career. We end with Bob O'Brien from the Cavs Chants blog, the one that is going to take over the Cavs-Heat game on TNT Thursday night.
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 on iTunes. Also, you can sample THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on SportsTalkNetwork.com.
