In this edition of the Cheap Seats, we sit down with rugby’s Ella Maddi ’19 to discuss pregame music, world domination, and long car rides.
Echo: What’s your pregame music?
Ella Maddi: Galway Girl and various covers of Galway Girl.
Echo: What’s your spirit animal?
EM: Octopus because they don’t have a brain but they’re still really good problem solvers and nobody knows why, and I aspire to be that level of badass.
Echo: Teammate most likely to take over the world?
EM: Maura Campbell because she was probably Catherine the Great in a former life.
Echo: Your Hogwarts House?
Echo: What do you think about when you’re alone in the car for long rides?
EM: I sometimes pretend I’m in Cheaper by the Dozen where they dramatically drive away from their old house, looking longing out the window with sad music playing in the background.
Echo: Best field to play on?
EM: Thomas College.
Echo: Are you a hunter or a gatherer?
EM: Gatherer. I pick berries with finesse.
