Maddon football: Rays skipper on USF
How's this for reaching out across your market: Devil Rays manager Joe Maddon made reference to USF's upset of No. 17 Auburn before Sunday's Rays game: "How about that USF game last night?" Maddon told former Times USF correspondent Mike Camunas, still loyal to the blog. "I fell asleep at the very end, but caught that they had won. I mean, that's quite an accomplishment."
If Maddon -- or any of you -- really want to stay up late again (or just set the DVR/VCR) the USF-Auburn game will be on late tonight. Officially it's Monday at 2 a.m., and my DVR is showing it as being only until 4:30, so there's some slick editing going on there. Since the beginning of Saturday's broadcast was bumped for the end of South Carolina-Georgia, it's your first chance to see those first few minutes.
