Wouter, I'd go riding with the lance, rather than the receiving! Dang, that hurt!

If you want a good leg workout, though it is a bit asymmetrical, fencing.

Or badminton, I hear it's the fastest sport in the world.

Not the best for my shoulder though. It should be fine, but I'd rather not push it's limits.

Next week I'm probably going to try some sports (if those idiots finally return my emails).

Forget the rugby if you want to stay uninjured and save your knees.

The only way I'd get to be on the receiving end of that and being poleaxed is if some blonde maiden was going to suffocate me with her chest whilst giving CPR.

Actually there were some maidens there. You've got me thinking, perhaps I'll turn up at the next Joust and lay down the gauntlet!

Hurrah, recognition for such a fab sport. It is my other passion. Whilst I've never had many great wins, I've played several of the great. A 305km/h smash needs some reactions to intercept. Any interested to watch, here is a classic match. Though everyone should look at this Danish guy for his superb athleticism, stunning reactions and stamina.

Brutal on the knees though.

Not even on one wheel? :)

How about ice skating in winter and in-line skating the rest of the year?
