FDH Lounge Show #13: July 29, 2007

With so much going on in the sports world and the world at large, the universe has never needed another episode of THE FDH LOUNGE more than right now. And fear not, our 13th Episode Blowout is coming your way at the usual time of 8-11 PM EDT on!

In Hour One, after the Dignitaries of The FDH Lounge have made their opening statements, we take a two-part look at the historic CNN/YouTube Democratic Presidential Debate of the past week. In addition to featuring the opening salvo of the down-and-dirty phase of the campaign between Obama and Chelsea's Mama, it raised two interesting questions:

1. What needs to be done to repair our foreign policy after George W. Bush?
2. Should the leading Republican candidates show up for their version of a YouTube debate? There's been some talk that some front-runners might boycott, deeming it unpresidential to take questions from goofy people in goofy costumes in web videos (i.e. The "Snowman") -- plus, CNN can and will stack the deck with questions from ill-intentioned pinkos. Should everyone show up to take their medicine or not?

In Hour Two, after we wrap up the previous two-part discussion, we move onto the FDH Lounge Movie Spotlight: namely, the Simpsons movie! Woo Hoo! Then, Lindsay Lohan: Train Wreck -- why does it fascinate us so? Also, the inevitable happened this week, when California Congressman Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the biggest camera hog in a town full of them, launched the opening salvo into a coming investigation of Vince McMahon and WWE. Can Da Gubmint do what Billionaire Ted could not?

In Hour Three, we welcome back our new friend Russ Cohen from The Card Corner Club, who will be attending the biggest collectible show in the country next weekend in Cleveland. He'll break down sports collectibles for those of us who have some interest but are not at the expert level. Then, we look at one of the worst sports weeks ever, from Michael Vick to NBA ref betting/fixing to the farce of Barry Bonds' pursuit of Hammerin' Hank. Will this hangover linger through the fall, when we have baseball pennant chases and then playoffs and the college and pro football seasons starting?

As always, we welcome your input, so tune into the program and check out the show where nothing is off-topic!
