FDH Lounge Show #40: December 10, 2008

By Rick Morris

Tonight's 40th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on (7-10 PM EST) marks the first episode of the show on our new Wednesday night home after vacating the old Sunday night timeslot. The standard format for the show will feature the "classic FDH Lounge" (nothing is off-topic) from 7-9 PM EST with the formerly independent FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER program as a show-within-a-show from 9-9:30 PM EST and THE GOON SQUAD providing a similar service with hockey talk from 9:30-10:00 PM EST.

But tonight we deviate from that format to bring you a special celebration of The FDH Lounge -- it's our fantasy supergroup draft!

We broke it down for you last week, and we'll include it again at the end of this preview, but suffice it to say that The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge will be competing in a fantasy sports-style draft, but we're all trying to put together the ultimate rock band!

Tune in at 7 PM EST for more great fun as you've always known it, just on a new night. Here's our overview of the event from last week:

"We are holding our first "fantasy supergroup" draft (big ups to our man STN executive producer Anthony Petrone for thinking of the idea).

What is that exactly? It's a standard serpentine fantasy draft that will see your favorite FDH and STN personalities each trying to assemble their ultimate "supergroup" of rock musicians! We'll each be picking one front man, one guitar, one bass, one drummer and two extra "wild card" musicians (this can be anything: an extra singer, a guitarist, a horn player, tamborine, cowbell, you name it) to put our groups together. Picks will be graded by a special celebrity judge who will crown our champion at the end of the night.

As much as we love standard fantasy sports at FDH, we've long been a proponent of spreading the competitive concept among friends to non-traditional areas like drag racing and the Triple Crown. Over the last two years with The Lounge, we've broadened the concept beyond sports altogether. Now, when The FDH Lounge moves to Wednesdays, we'll show you and your friends how to hold a fantasy supergroup draft, we'll have a great time doing it, and so will you if you join us either that night or via our archives. Don't miss it!"
