Joe Maddon Books Flight For Wrong Day, Scrambles To Return From All-Star Break

Joe Maddon returned to Tampa from the All-Star Break on Thursday on just two hours sleep. The Rays' manager spent the time off in California but when he went to airport to come back east to Tampa Bay, he realized he didn't have a flight. We can all get confused sometimes clicking on those calendar tools to make our flight reservations, mistakenly clicking on a box one row below when choosing a flight. Maddon apparently booked his return flight for next Thursday the 19th. More on the mishap after the jump:


"I made the reservation for the wrong day," Maddon said. "I got to the airport last night, thinking I had a reservation for the flight that got in at six in the morning, but I didn't. That was for next Thursday."

You can watch a full video of the interview here.
