I have read about these guys. I saw the show last night and it wass exacty like I thought it would be. The lead guy-Charlie , i believe is kind of an ass. Having read an interveiw with him over a year ago I expected it. My son was watching the show with me and he hates that guy as well. That aside, it was a little interesting and somewhat entertaining. Wey will see how the whole thing pans out.BTW, I was at the Sonora Celtic Faire when those guys were jousting. Overall not as much fun in person. I am waiting to see Jeff Hedgecocks group. They are more into the period look and feel , rather than just being macho-bikers on horses. He runs the Tournament of Phoenix, which actually has people from all parts of the world involved.

I hope it leads into longsword dueling. Now that would be hot.

From what I understand, they(Knights Mayhem) only do mounted lance.

Well, they had motorcycles instead of horses, but I think I get your point.

There's no chivalry. They're like pro wrestlers on horses with armor and lances. <_<
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

It's hard to claim that you're the "world champion" of anything when your field is about a half-dozn. And there are quite a few more groups around the world that joust as well.
