FDH Lounge #151: June 21, 2011

By Rick Morris

For a 151-proof Episode #151, THE FDH LOUNGE (Tuesdays, 7-9 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com) “snacks on danger and dines on death.”

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and This Week in The FDH Lounge, we turn for a look at sports headlines (and maybe even some non-sports ones like Ryan Dunn) with a fellow member of The 21st Century Media Alliance (with his outstanding Outside the Box Score and That NBA Lottery Pick sites) who has recently become an NBC Sports contributor, (largely through Off The Bench at this time), Ben Chew. We’ll plow through Rory McIlroy, the NBA Draft, the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals and anything else we can fit into the segment.

Next, we bring in John Ferguson, author of WHY FENWAY: EXPLORING THE RED SOX MYSTIQUE. His book perfectly highlights the elements that have made the first 100 years at that park some of the most memorable in sports.

The momentum continues – and then some – at the top of Hour Two with ½ of arguably the greatest tag team of all time: “Road Warrior AnimalJoe Laurinaitis! His brand-new book THE ROAD WARRIORS: DANGER, DEATH AND THE RUSH OF WRESTLING is an incredible look at the careers that helped change pro wrestling once and for all. We’ll work our way through as much of this unbelievable story as we can and possibly get a chance to chat with his son James also (yes, “Little Animal,” the Rams and former Ohio State linebacker!).

We wrap as usual with THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER and Fox Sports and SwollenDome.com fantasy columnist Mike Harmon (who also co-hosts the super-entertaining show FANTASY FREAKS on Fox Sports Radio Sundays at 10 AM EDT). We’ll address his thoughts on the implications of the Albert Pujols injury and potential flops in fantasy football this year.

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.
