You guys are making me feel bad. I have to drive 40 miles in any direction from my house just for my Garmen GPS Navigation system to pick me up, which lends itself to another redneck joke.

This thread reminds me of the old PACE Pecante Sauce commercials. I say if you're a redneck, your chances of jumping high are increased cause there aint nothin else to do but vault!

If during the 30 or so years that were "vaultless" you discovered that 1550 Black Cat made for an excellent Christmas light puter uper.

If your coach ever yelled "Git-r-done" before one of your jumps.

If you don't see anything inherently wrong with having a Confederate flag printed on your pit's top pad.

If you've wondered if you've got enough money to buy Michael Vick's dog fighting business from him.

If your parents ever got so excited at one of your meets your momma started speaking in tongues and your daddy felt the need to testify.

If you ever thought, "If I clear this bar, I'll be as happy as a heifer in a patch of red clover."

If after a particularly good jump your coach yells, "You heated that one up like a day old biscuit!"
