FDH Lounge Show #97: March 31, 2010

By Rick Morris

As we approach the 100th episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on, we have an episode that matches almost anything that has come before in terms of diversity of topics.

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we will take a minute to pay tribute to one of our earliest colleagues on The Sports Talk Network, legendary Cleveland sportscaster Geoff Sindelar. He may not have been widely known outside of the STN flagship city of Cleveland, but he was a passionate and super-smart host, appropriately known as “The Professor.” He passed away suddenly last week at the age of 62. There are a few video clips of his work that can be seen here. Also, we will unveil the winner of our St. Patrick’s Day Fantasy Beer Draft.

From there, starting at the bottom of Hour One, we have three panels, each approximately a half hour in length on some wide-ranging subjects:

^ The 2010 MLB season: We are joined by Newsday’s Ken Davidoff and Jay Ferraro of Baseball Digest.

^ WrestleMania recap and look ahead to the next year of WWE programming: Mike Mooneyham of The Post and Courier, the newspaper industry’s longest-running pro wrestling columnist and Slam! Wrestling columnist Jon Waldman.

^ Politics and health care reform overview: Colin Delany of epolitics and actor/author/Sopranos alum Carl Capotorto.

On THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER at the top of Hour Three, we unveil lessons learned from drafts and auctions we have observed this spring in order to be able to help the owners who have yet to assemble their teams. We emphasize yet again your most useful tool: FANTASY BASEBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2010, a free download! We close with THE GOON SQUAD and an in-depth examination of the way that the NHL playoff bracket is materializing.

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!
