FDH Lounge Show #103: May 19, 2010

By Rick Morris

The recent 100th episode milestone for THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on SportsTalkNetwork.com) plays into another one on this week’s edition of the show where “nothing is off-topic.”

Before we get into that, however, we start as always with The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge. From there, Newsday NBA writer Alan Hahn joins us to break down Tuesday night’s lottery, the playoffs and the beginning of the Summer of LeBron.

In Hour Two, we start by paying tribute to the late, great Ronnie James Dio, one of the greatest frontmen of all time, then we make our announcement about THE LOUNGE’s newest spinoff project: THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, airing Monday-Friday from 6-7 PM on The Sports Talk Network. We dig into our archives for each of these trips back in time to bring you another taste of our unique roundtables and interviews. We’ll actually give you a taste of it right at this point with a look back to Episode #2 when Dignitaries Paul Teeple and Chris Galloway warred over the topic of “Be True To Your School.” Both men are alums of Ohio University, but Teeps admitted to rooting for Ohio State over his old school when the two met on the gridiron. The sparks really flew and we’ll relive the fun here. After that, Original FDH Lounge Dignitary Nate Noy joins us to take a look at some of Tuesday’s momentous election results and his take on the Summer of LeBron.

In Hour Three, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER examines a trend in fantasy baseball that has taken root over the past year or two, one that should remain in effect for at least the next three or four years: the near-doubling of legitimate aces in the game. Dominant young arms have come along to almost double the ranks of legit #1 pitchers in the game. We will elaborate, examine why the present ranks should remain at that high level going forward and break down the roto implications. Then we close with THE GOON SQUAD and an in-depth examination of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

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!
