Madison's 40,000 post spectacular

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri Mar 10, 2006 3:50 pm

To celebrate the occasion of Madison's upcoming 40,000th post, we at the Cafe have decided to treat you to a little retrospective of the life and times of Madison.

You may not know this but Madison is a very important historical figure and we are not just talking about the history of the Cafe.

Chapter One - the begining

As a founding father, Madison worked behind the scenes on the drafting of the Federalist Papers and is a key uncredited author of many important pre-independance documents. "No taxation without representation" was a Madison quote unfortunately his contribution of "America roxor soxor" was left out of the final draft of the Declaration of Independance.

It is also a little known fact that Madison pistol whipped Aaron Burr in a dispute over a stove-pipe hat.

Although many of his written works are not credited, Madison has been imortalized in stone.

Chapter Two - The French love Madison

It is well known that the French love Madison. After a vacation in Paris in 1882 the French presented Madison with a life-sized statute which he threw in the New York harbour when he returned home

Chapter Three - Some more stuff

Madison keeps popping up from time to time throughout history.

He turned the tide of the war in the Pacific.

Image

He made history in outter space.

Image

But some of his other moments were less than shining.

Image

Image

After the VH1 special "No more cowbell for Madison" aired, Madison's music career spiralled downward and apart from a writing credit on Poison's "Unskinny Bop" and some back up vocals on Ah-Ha's "Take on Me", Madison's music career was essentially over.

and finally his relationship with the French soured.

Image

In the 1990s Madison turned his attention to baseball and invented fantasy sports as we now know them. After he created the Baseball Cafe he decided that he had earned some rest and he retired to a life of bowling and dispensing fantasy advice to those poor souls who are obviously inferior to him in the art of fantasy gaming.

The Baseball Cafe and America as we know it would not be the same without the contributions of a skinny little bowler from Arlington Texas known as Madison.

Congrats on 40,000 Madison ;-D

I heard that Madison is currently suing NBC because Law & Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

Congrats Madison, the cafe certainly wouldn't be the same without you and your spinning planet and ring thing below your name.

Domo Arigato Madison!
