    I tore it....again...

    ..the same one I had surgically reconstructed in 2006. I was skiing and I didn't even really fall this time. It was just an off balance landing on a small jump. Anyone else had surgery both times in the same knee?

    Bad Luck

    Pure adrenaline pumped through my veins as I rushed at a member of the opposing team to try and steal the ball away from her. I remember everything so clearly: the sunny weather, the enthused shouts of the parents watching from the stands, and the constant encouragement of my...
