FDH Lounge Show #78: October 21, 2009

By Rick Morris

SECOND EDIT: Technical issues for anybody tuning in and not finding us tonight. We apologize greatly and will hopefully reschedule everyone soon. So hopefully everything below applies to shows in the near future!

EDIT: Some last-minute reordering is taking place here, updated from when this was posted earlier today.

If any celebrity were endorsing the 78th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on SportsTalkNetwork.com (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST), it would have to be Eric Cartman saying, “Respect our VA-RIE-AH-TIE!”

After The Opening Statements of The Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we lead off with another edition of The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report, examining the latest headlines in the pro and college games. From there, we welcome the chance to speak with Pat O’Conner, President of Minor League Baseball as he talks about continuing developments with the national pastime’s representation at the grass roots level.

Right at the top of Hour Two, we start our FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER early as we go over with you in depth all that you can gain from FANTASY HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2009, our brand-new guide available now for free download. Additionally, we’ll touch on an excellent article in The Hockey News about fantasy hockey and the plus-minus rating -- and how it ties into one of our core philosophies about regression/progression to the mean.

At the bottom of the hour, we are pleased to welcome one of the most versatile actor and voiceover talents in Hollywood over the past few decades. Curtis Armstrong has been able to take part in big TV productions (Moonlighting, American Dad and Boston Legal to name just a few) and big movies (Risky Business, Dodgeball, Van Wilder and of course the legendary “Booger” in the Revenge of the Nerds series just to name a few) and thus, he has a set of perspectives like few in the business. We’re very happy to talk to him about them.

We return to the FANTASY INSIDER to break down NFL Week 7 and we then bring on KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini for his thoughts on the fantasy football landscape. We wrap up one half hour early tonight to make way for a very special edition of TOTAL EXTREME LIVE on the Network. The reason? Our friend Chris Rickles, CEO of Total eXtreme, will be interviewing the one and only Robert Englund, just in time for Halloween!

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!
