    When was cross country running cool?

    The cross country team at my high school was pretty cool. I tried to run distance on the track team but ended up a pole vaulter - that was cool.

    That is funny. I too was a pole vaulter. I did it because I liked landing in the pit. It was cut my senor year though because it was considered unsafe, a few kids died that year nationwide.

    You have a great deal of talent. Multiple instruments, and a distinct voice with a lot of range, too. Nice.

    I'm pretty sure they started to require helmets at my school years after I left.

    I remember the first time I bent the pole and it shot me over the bar, that was awesome.

    Man some of these posts had me rolling . My name is pretty lame. I randomly typed it into the corvette forum 4 or 5 years ago when I bought my first corvette for auto-xing. I started a business in a small "town" called Red Top. It's located in an area previously owned by a rancher named Flanagan. All his kids had red hair so he named the location Red Top. We liked the name and used it for our business - Red Top Aquafarm. The "z" comes from my "Z"O6. I thought of changing it to "Red Top Racing", but that sounds too serious for someone who tows his own cars to the track and flogs them around at amateur events maybe 8 weekends per year.

    Shoot, I always thought redtop is what happens when a certain farmer is caught working outside without his hat.

    I almost responded to Gordon's post using the pot callng the kettle . . . You beat me to it.

    And Gordon, I've been much happier since the day I figured out that I wasn't cool.

    These guys don't know anything. Star wars guys are cool. Harrison Ford right? It's the Trekies that are the nerds. I used to have the Star Trek trivia book back in the 70's lol. What does the T in James T Kirk stand for? Tiberius. And I don't need google. Heh heh, heh heh.

    Red neck yes (literally, not socially). I have to wear a hat these days or you would be correct.
