"equestrian game" you mean jousting?

Its 2 men racing toward each other on 800 lb animals while pointing sharp wooden sticks at each other. What could go wrong?

Horses weight more along the lines of 1000 lbs. Or even more if you've got a draft cross.

As they said in the Medieval times: Safety third. Poor chap.

every medieval re-enactor knows the prize of their hobby like any form of contact sport. RIP

The pointy end should be away from your body. It's in the instructions manual!

It's not cultural appropriation if it's white european descendants re-enacting white european contact sports. It's only cultural appropriation if anyone but white people do it. I like to think of this with the Idubbbztv line of thought when it comes to saying racist words. "Either it's all ok, or none of it is." My rendition is "either everyone can culturally appropriate, or nobody can."

I would be okay with this death. It's a good story at least, not like choking on a sandwich.

Rest in peace. From an article "apparently impaled himself", apparently? "He was a brother in arms to many of us [and] lost his life in the pursuit of our game". A game were idiots charge at each other on speeding horses using lances. Such a noble cause <rolls eyes>
