LOL. Had to Google the guy's name just to understand that one but it was totally worth it.

If your coach determines your starting height based on how his knee feels.

you break the tent used for your graduation party by trying to pole vault over it

the main decorations for your grad party are all the poles you've jumped on since seventh grade

you vault off a dock because that's the closest thing you can find to a runway and pit

you use a snow pile for early season practice

...If your Saturday practice gets cancelled due to the fact that our town was having it's annual "Corn Fest!" lol (Also just recently happened!) lol

If you know you have good vaulting genetics because your Grandpa outran you in cowboy boots while chasing a cow.

If you thought pole vaulters were the bravest athletes in the world till you saw a gay cowboy compete in the barrel race at the town fair rodeo.

If you reworded all the verses of "Amarillo by Morning" so the song is about vaulting in Europe. "Broke my pole in Oslo / Hurt my back in Budapest / Got embarassed by Serge / Oh, my god he's the best / I need to get paid so I'll have some where to stay / while I try to get in Koblenz. / Paris France by morning / God I hope they let me in ...

If you couldn't find the ladder, so you stiff poled onto the roof of the barn to nail down the tin.

If your pole rolled off the edge while you were doing this, and you were stuck up there for two hours waiting for your wife to come out of the house.

If you think the name Usain Bolt refers to something you might need to fix a trailer hitch.
