Maddon talks in half an hour. I’ve written this before but he and I are graduates of Lafayette College in Easton, PA. He graduated ten years after me. He grew up in Hazelton, PA. The family lived over his dad’s plumbing shop — their name had been shortened from Maddonini. When he went to Lafayette as a freshman he called his mom after one week and told her he wanted to come home and become a plumber and sleep in his old bed. His mom said the bed at Lafayette was just fine. And look where he ended up. Is there a moral to this story? Change beds? Nah.
