I've been listening to Madden for years and years. Back in the day, before the online hockey community became what it now is, his show on 1250 was THE source for little inside hockey tidbits, rumors, and an insiders view of the Pens.
Being that I was a big fan of pro wrestling when he started on the airwaves, I was very much in tune with his "act" from day one. I totally got when he was heeling it up against the likes of Bettis and Hines, and how he will always defend Ben because so many Stiller fans have an instinct to blame the QB for all the teams woes.
I still listen on my drive home from work, but his content is not nearly as vital a lifeline to the puck universe as he once was. not his fault, the world we live in has very much changed. he still does snag some quality interviews and his show is generally still better than 90% of the other sports talk in this city.
