Thanks to a 7-year-old girl that noticed his relatively short height (5’5’’), unusually large ears, and exceptional leaping ability, the “Rabbit” was born. He took that jumping ability to new heights, literally. Sometimes, under the influence of alcohol, Maranville would dive into his hotel swimming pool…from his hotel balcony. Dude was definitely badass before the word even existed.
