HEBRON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Harold Brooks says this year's "Redneck Olympics" will be three times the size of last year's, and he doesn't care what the U.S. Olympic Committee says about it.
In August, Brooks held the Redneck Olympics on his land in Hebron. The event included mud runs, tire popping, bobbing for pigs feet and toilet seat horseshoes.
The event drew some heat from the U.S.O.C.. The organization has exclusive rights to the word "Olympic" and they say Brooks can't use it.
But Brooks says he isn't stopping. He says he's organizing the 2012 event and plans it to be much bigger than it was in 2011.
Brooks says he's planning on selling t-shirts that read "Redneck ________" with a picture of the word game hangman next to it. He says if the U.S.O.C. asks what goes in the 8 blank spaces after the word "Redneck" he'll say it's "Bull****".
