FDH Lounge #134: February 8, 2011

By Rick Morris

THE FDH LOUNGE (Tuesdays, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com) has another episode coming your way crammed with chracteristic variety the way that nobody else can bring it.

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and This Week in The FDH Lounge, we revisit the off-the-field aspects of a chaotic Super Bowl week in icy North Dallas before bringing in one of our favorite football analysts, Ken Palmer of Giants Insider and Pigskin Insider for a definitive Super Bowl breakdown.

Coincidentally, our next guest also hails from the New York corridor as we bring on one of sports’ most noted catchphrase artists, Yankee radio play-by-play broadcaster John Sterling. Our next guest makes his return from almost a year ago (Episode #92 on February 24, 2010): one of the world’s foremost iPhone and iPad authorities, Alex Cone. His work in developing mobile apps at CodeFab is very innovative and his status as iPhone Boot Camp instructor speaks to his credentials as nothing else can.

We start Hour Three by following up on our announcement of two weeks ago about our FDH Lounge Ultimate Anthology – that makes available on the STN site and our iTunes page a hugely-expanded collection of our greatest segments – by reprising our conversation with Art Schlichter from Episode #118 last October 6. Now that he is back in the news for an apparent reprise of his gambling addiction and an operation created to facilitate the gambling, it’s worth taking a look back at what he had to say about the lessons learned that he recapped in his book – while he was already apparently off the wagon. As strange as it may sound under the circumstances, we do believe that the interview will show a real sincerity about the evils of addiction and his determination to fight them and help other people fight them.

We wrap up as always with THE FANTASY DRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER and our 2011 NASCAR fantasy mock draft. Our draft guide FANTASY NASCAR DRAFTOLOGY 2011 is coming within the week and in the meantime, we have our rankings online on our fantasy sports blog.

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.
