FDH Lounge Show #76: October 7, 2009

By Rick Morris

The next edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT) features more of the variety you have come to expect from us, including some good long-form Dignitary roundtable segments.

After The Opening Statements of the Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we lead with our NBA season preview roundtable. Can the Beasts of the East contend with the Lakers and the resurgent Spurs? Who are all of the legitimate MVP candidates? How does the 2010 free agency picture affect this season? We’ll break it all down for you. From there, we examine the latest twist in the biggest year for the late-night NBC-CBS wars since 1993: newly top-rated David Letterman’s confession of multiple crimes against his family. Will this have an effect on his ratings and on his contract, which is set to expire next year? We have our opinions on the subject.

Then, at the top of Hour Two, we break into another exciting edition of The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report. Undefeated teams are dwindling fast in college football and the legitimate undefeated ones are falling by the wayside even faster. We’ll take a look at what lies ahead. In the NFL, the wheat and the chaff are already starting to separate. What will be the effects of Braylon Edwards and Michael Crabtree moving into their new situations? Who’s for real and who’s not? We’ll get into all of that. At that point, we welcome in WFAN radio host Evan Roberts. He has relevant thoughts on a number of topics, from the Yankees playoff run to the Mets’ tank job to the Edwards acquisition by the Jets to the follies and foibles of Monday Night RAW.

Then, shortly before Hour Three begins, we get into the first part of our FANTASY DRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER by looking ahead to NFL Week 5 action. Our fantasy football talk is sandwiched by a call at the top of the third hour to ESPN hockey analyst Scott Burnside, who examines the early days of the 2009-2010 NHL season and looks ahead with us to what should be a memorable campaign. After resuming the fantasy talk with some hoops analysis, we then bring on KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini for his thoughts on the fantasy football landscape.

We close with THE GOON SQUAD in our last half hour by resuming our hockey talk and predictions for 2009-10.

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 or catch us now on iTunes!
