This is probably a story you’ve heard before, especially after Madison Bumgarner’s domination during the 2014 MLB Playoffs and World Series. But just in case you missed it, there was a world where Madison Bumgarner dated Madison Bumgarner and you’re living in it.
SI.com has the story in which they named him the ‘Sportsman of the Year’:
It’s all true. That he was so good so young that he started playing coach-pitch baseball at age four against seven-year-olds, and is so adept with either hand that he shoots a bow, bats, writes and ropes righthanded, but throws from the left side. That his father, Kevin, wouldn’t let him throw a curveball until he had a driver’s license. That before he dated Ali, he dated a girl named Madison Bumgarner (“No relation, I’m sure of it”).
And yes, as you can tell by the above excerpt, Madison Bumgarner dating Madison Bumgarner did not work.
Instead he married his wife, Ali Bumgarner. The same woman he presented a cow for a birthday present. And no, I’m not kidding.
Perphaps the most amazing part of this all? The whole Madison Bumgarner dated Madison Bumgarner story isn’t even the best one in his lure.
