FDH Lounge Show #80: November 11, 2009

By Rick Morris

Our 80th episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on SportsTalkNetwork.com) demonstrates yet again why we say that our theme is "nothing is off-topic."

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we bring back another episode of The FDH Lounge Pigskin Report with a look at pro football headlines. In the second half of Hour One, 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.

Hour Two opens with a talk with new Philadelphia Phillies scout and former All-Star Phillies third baseman Dave Hollins. His observations on the recent baseball postseason will surely be interesting, especially in light of his 1993 World Series appearance with the Phils. Also, a late addition to the broadcast: Hollins' former teammate, another former Phillies third baseman and Big League Baseball Academy proprietor Charlie Hayes.

In the second half of the hour, we start our FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER a bit early as we bring you our college hoops team draft: a fantasy-sports style pool where we draft college basketball teams instead of individual players. Check out our scoring system and draft board from the FantasyDrafthelp.com blog.

In Hour Three, the INSIDER continues with a fantasy football stretch run preview with Steve Schwartz of SportsNetwork.com. We'll subsequently break down NFL Week 10 before we then bring on KFFL Managing Editor Bryce McRae for his thoughts on the fantasy football landscape. We wrap with our other show-within-a-show, THE GOON SQUAD, and a look at the present NHL standings and Monday night's inductions into the Hockey Hall of Fame (including the one and only Stevie Y!).

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!
