FDH Lounge Show #99: April 21, 2010

By Rick Morris

The “Road to 100” is almost over as the 99th episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on proves for the 99th time our credo of “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 a big-time guest from Episode #67, one of the most prominent duel-threats in the world of sports and entertainment: Dhani Jones! This guy is a dual threat and we don’t mean that he’s adding offensive snaps to his linebacker duties; this Bengal linebacker is also a media superstar! His Dhani Tackles the Globe series on the Travel Channel showcases slivers of other cultures in a completely unique manner and his multimedia contributions to the ESPN media family stand out as well. We’ll talk about the just-starting Season #2 of his program and the revival of the Bengals’ fortunes in 2009. Then, we bring back in our good friend Simon Applebaum from the hit webcast and blog Tomorrow Will Be Televised to talk about the Conan bombshell that hit this week and all of the implications that will flow from the move to TBS.

In Hour Two, NFL Draft preview talk gets fired up with our correspondents live from the scene in New York, Ira Lieberfarb and Ken Palmer [SPEAKING OF THE NFL DRAFT: C’mon back to tomorrow night as we join our buddies in The 21st Century Media Alliance in streaming the best NFL Draft liveblogging you will find anywhere!]. From there, another big-time past guest, Episode #65’s Kenny Albert will be back on to discuss his work broadcasting Rangers and Knicks games in New York, Olympic hockey for the NBC networks, college hoops for ESPN Plus and NFL and MLB for Fox Sports. He’s a busy guy! And, proving how timely this return really is, he was the play-by-play announcer for last Saturday’s Mets-Cardinals marathon game on Fox!

In Hour Three, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER conducts our annual Triple Crown fantasy draft and then we deliver our breakdown of the now-underway Stanley Cup Playoffs on THE GOON SQUAD. 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!
