Jousting apparently is alive, well and the subject of a new reality TV show.
“Full Metal Jousting” is soliciting participants who can win up to $100,000 for participating. The show is sponsored by the History Channel and aims to recreate the sport as it was played in medieval times.
No previous jousting experience is required but you should be a skilled equestrian and have “the heart of a warrier.”
Note to self: this makes eventing look pretty darn safe.
