Joust!

No, not the video game.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

Re: Joust!

Maryland's official state sport... why it's not lacrosse I'll never know.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Joust!

Yeah that stuff is cool. They have place out here called Mideavil Knights where they really get into it. Not bad, dinner and a show.

Not a joke..a bit of trivia. It is Maryland's official sport.

I don't think it is. The ones that broke did so after several hard hits. Take for example, this shot....No, this is not a breakdancing Knight. He just got hit with one of those lances.

I actually got that one exactly when I wanted to. I wasn't expecting the lance to break though so that was lucky.

No kidding. I never would have guessed.





On a side note: I have some pics of a Liger. They have a 3 year old Liger there that weighs in at 900lbs. He's in the Guinness Book as the world's largest cat and he's not even full grown yet.

I was going to ask if that was King Dick's and then I saw the name on the image. Haven't been there in a lot of years ;-)

Sperm donor. Maybe.

Meet Hercules the Liger.

For size ref.: Those guys on stage were a bit taller than me...I'd guess 6'2" or 6'3"...

Yup, King Richard's Faire in Carver, MA. This was our first time there. A lot of fun.

Re: Joust!

The Mud Show was one of the best acts going out there. I can't remember much of the rest. I've been induced to go to a couple "medieval" events since being out here and they're either impossibly touristy, or impossibly grognard. Never quite that happy medium...

Sperm donor. Maybe.
