Bad things come in 3s, right? So far in the last 24 hrs, I got a ticket & have thrown out my back. Cowering in fear of bad thing #3.

According to an article from SFGate (Sept. 11, 2008), Rachel Maddow, 36, is 5′ 11″ tall and was a competitive three-sport athlete. She participated in volleyball, basketball and the swim team at Castro Valley High School. She was “the sort of intense player who was frequently injured diving for balls.”
