The Danger of Jousting Sends One to the Hospital on 'Knights of Mayhem' (VIDEO)

'Knights of Mayhem' premiere'Knights of Mayhem' (Tue., 9PM ET on National Geographic) is a new reality series shining a spotlight torchlight on a group of people who want to see full-contact professional jousting recognized as a professional sport. It used to be one of the biggest shows in town, and these guys think it still could be.

Certainly it's still one of the most dangerous, as evidenced by this incredibly hard hit taken by Brian Stephenson. At 6'2" and 250 pounds, Stephenson is no light weight, but when you combine a charging horse and a lance, it's enough to knock someone silly.

Luckily, paramedics were on hand to examine Stephenson. And while it was determined he needed to go the hospital due to head trauma, that was no reason to shut down the tournament. Like other sports, the show must go on, after all.
