You Might Be a Redneck...

if Jeff Foxworthy personally gives you tickets to see his show. Matt's dad, Allen, is Jeff's taxidermist. So he called Allen and offered him tickets to his show in Houston on January 30. He was there with 2 of the Blue Collar guys, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. Allen of course said yea! We'd love tickets! Can we have 10? Not only did Jeff hook us up with 10 tickets, but also backstage passes to meet him and the other guys. Unfortunately, Allen didn't even get to go to the show. So since Matt also mounts some of Jeff's stuff, he was put in charge of the tickets. We got to spend the evening with great friends and had a blast! Trent and Andrea rode with us to Houston (actually, we rode with them since Andrea drove) and we met up at Brent and Leigh Ann's. The 6 of us then piled up and headed to dinner before the show. Once we got there, we met up with David, Mona, Jordan (who was a little late), and a friend of theirs. We had quite a crew. We laughed hard all night, mostly at Bill and Jeff. Larry was funny at times, but was not the most tasteful guy.

I'm not trying to hug all up on Jeff. Bill Engvall was trying to squeeze me out or something. It was very awkward. Matt brought some hats for Jeff to sign and Jeff started going on and on about how Allen was the best taxidermist in the whole world. When Larry and Bill saw the hats, they wanted some. Larry kept saying "That's a nice hat right there. Can I get one of dem." I'm sure you can imagine his voice saying that. Our backstage time took up way more time than you're allowed but Jeff just wanted to talk to Matt about his mounts and kept asking if Allen was coming. It was great!

My Disclaimer: I DESPISE ever being called a redneck. Just because I'm from a small town where some people there choose to be rednecks, does not make me one. Just because people in my current hometown or family choose to be rednecks, does not make me one. Not saying being a "redneck" is bad thing, but its a lifestyle you choose for yourself. And I do not choose that for myself. I don't know why it bothers me so much, but its one of my biggest pet peeves. So yes, I had a great time at the show. The guys are stinking hilarious. But believe me, we definitely did not blend in with the crowd that was there.
