Jousting: The Original Extreme Sport!

These fuckers are crazy.

Once upon a time -- before football, basketball, or even baseball -- there was jousting. During the Middle Ages, jousting was used by kings to keep their knights in peak fighting condition. Today, jousting brings to mind a local renaissance fair or a movie scene. But jousting does exist today, in its original form. SportsCenter traveled to the World Jousting Championships in Colorado to speak with modern day knights who are desperately trying to bring what they consider the original extreme sport back to the masses.

Sir Charles served a 10 year tour of duty with the Navy Special Operations and is a veteran of Desert Storm and operation Restore Hope in Somalia. He turned the expertise he gained as a Special Ops Officer into practice and now serves as the President of Trident Security & Associates Inc., a full spectrum security and protection company based in San Jose California.




Heard him on Jim Rome earlier today and he said they're bringing in MMA guys, doing a combine like the NFL and making this a legit sport. :lol:
