25 random things about FDH

By Rick Morris

Presently, we have a page but not an FDH Lounge Facebook page. One is deemed to be too intrusively commercial for Facebook, I guess, and the other is not. Whatever.

So essentially we treat our page as a representative of all of FDH Enterprises, LLC, not just the fantasy sports division but our "nothing is off-topic" Lounge division as well.
