Rachel Maddow's Soccer Skills Stun! (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rachel Maddow is a Stanford graduate, a Rhodes scholar, an AIDS activist and the host of her own MSNBC show. But wait, there's more! She's also really good at soccer.

Maddow was in a production meeting for Tuesday's show when she and her team decided to break out a soccer ball. She expertly juggled the ball on her knee, heel and feet. Evidently, someone thought the same thing we did, asking, "Jesus, Maddow, what can't you do?" The Rhodes scholar recalled her illustrious title as co-champion of soccer juggling in her sixth grade class.

The team raised the roof, so to speak, and destroyed a few ceiling tiles in all the action. The cause of the fervor was an interview with the US national soccer team, which Maddow was really, really excited about.
