    Interesting to read, and to see some decent photography attached. It's a shame, but I expect the audience for both camps is too low to make a go of it here in NA.

    I enjoyed the article too, and found it interesting to know that there is a dichotomy between the more "hardcore" jousters and the more show-oriented ones. The article on-line has some video of the full-contact jousters. After watching it, and hearing about the injuries, I'm not sure if I really want to do that...
