I learned to love football watching John Madden -- he made it so much fun! Thanks John Madden for all the great years of entertaining and teaching us about the game, and about how to enjoy life! Have fun with your wonderful family and thank you for helping make Pleasanton such a great community!

Why would the EDITOR, (Jeb) post a story 2 hours ago, written about Madden almost SEVEN months ago, especially in light of the previous story yesterday in which the thread got way off track and was locked?

It it perhaps the case, that The EDITOR is just plain into provocation and or drama on this site?

Or does the EDITOR have a specific need to write about Madden?

This is most bizzare IF indeed the EDITOR really posted this SEVEN month old story!

"Interesting," an editor did not create the post from the old story.

What happened was someone located an old story we had about Madden and commented on it.

When that happens, a new topic is created on the TownSquare forum.

Am I lost? I left for a minute and came back to the wrong place. I think I made a left when I should have stayed more to the right. Kind of a directional bi-polar moment I guess. Sorry.
