Redneck Olympics Threatened With Lawsuit Over Name

For the United States Olympic Commission, it's about 15 years too late to start worrying about an American Olympics event being associated with the word Redneckbut they're making a show of it anyhow. This one doesn't even have chromed-out and specifically branded pickup trucks, you guys.

Also, let's go ahead and file this one under the Law of Vancouver Riots, which dictates that every place on earth, no matter how far away from the Southeast it may be, has lots and lots of rednecks. Welcome to the map, central Maine, despite your citation of Pepsi v. soda as legal precedent.

New Hampshire would be no surprise at all, considering its number of Gadsden flag-types throughout, but Maine is a strong pelt to add to the collection. The only people I've ever met from Maine owned expensive boats and talked about Atlanta as if it were a safari destination. It is, of course.
