FDH Lounge Show #53: April 8, 2009

By Rick Morris

The 53rd edition of THE FDH LOUNGE (7-10 PM EDT) on will be full of the variety that has made us so notorious over time.

We lead off with our good friend, fellow STN host The Scout Ken Becks, proprietor of the new website. With the NFL Draft just weeks away, the Silly Season of personal workouts and rampant rumors is well underway. The Scout will help us sort out fact from fiction in terms of the ’09 draft class. Then, following The Opening Statements of The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge and our weekly look at This Week In The FDH Lounge, we welcome in some amazing entrepreneurs, Kyle Alford and Nick Parsons of Beta Pong. This company is focused on providing high-end product support to the outstanding collegiate sport of beer pong! What’s it been like basically inventing an industry? We’ll find out!

Then, in Hour Two, longtime wrestling photographer George Napolitano of gives you the lowdown on what it was like to be at ringside for WrestleMania 25 and shares his thoughts on other great moments in the business that he has covered.

Also, as promised last week, we examine some profound political and economic statements from Glenn Jacobs, aka Kane in WWE. We’ll play some audio and get reactions from Lounge Dignitary Burrell Jackson, who is sure to take issue with at least a few of the thoughts. Next, we’ll examine the growth of what has been labeled the “right-wing death cult” – the self-righteous pundits purporting to speak for all conservatives in wanting Barack Obama to be a complete failure.

In Hour Three, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER (9:00-9:30 PM EDT) brings you a look at overall fantasy sports strategy, FDH-style and also a glance at the players who could benefit from being on potential dark horse contenders in ’09. And with the Masters starting on Thursday, we’ll take a look at this year’s top candidates to cash for you in a Masters pool. After that, on THE GOON SQUAD (9:30-10:00 PM EDT), we examine a column from our good friend Russ Cohen at Hockeyology that identifies five reasons the Flyers will be a threat in the playoffs. From there, we examine the NHL standings and then preview the biggest remaining regular season games.

It’s going to be a great program and we hope you can be a part of our audience. 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.
