Let's All Cheer for the Blue Knight

First of all, Happy Birthday Little Sister, J!! That's right, yesterday was dad's birthday and today is J's birthday, she's no longer a teenager!
On to Atlanta stuff:
While in Atlanta, we did manage to make the 7:30 show at Medieval Times. And, OMG, it was AWESOME!! If you ever have the chance, and are so inclined to watch horses doing tricks and "knights" jousting and sword fighting, you MUST see this show!
First thing we got were crowns to match our seating area and the knight we would be cheering for. Yay Blue Knight!
Then, we entered the arena and sat in the coordnating section. We were right next to the yellow section, so it was extra competetive for us! :) Soup was served from a large bucket, and we had to slurp it straight from the bowl! The pewter bowl got really hot really fast, and burned my lips, but it was pretty good.
As the bread, Half of a Chicken, spare rib, and potato were served, we watched the "Master of Ceremonies" demonstrate horse tricks. Then, we were introduced to our Knights and the games began!
There was a whole story line, just like watching a medieval times movie, but in person.
Our beloved Blue Knight was the princess's significant other, but lost in his first battle and was taken off to the dungeon. The champion of the games was the Black & White Knight, but he was killed by the Governor (who obviously was secretly a Bad Guy). Then, our Blue Knight escaped the dungeon,fought and defeated the Governor (and his minions), was united with his True Love, and became the heir to the throne!
I wish I had more pics, but we took more video than anything. Oh, and the food was excellent (besides eating in the dark)! I'm kind of picky about my meat (don't like the gristle, cartilage, or other slimy/crunchy parts), and I just had to get over it and dig in! I mean that literally, as we dug in with both hands!
The whole thing can be summed up with one word: Wow! 2.5 hours of entertainment and a hoarse voice...what a way to spend an evening!

Ohhh, that sounds like so much fun! It does remind me of the Cable Guy though....

So, your guy won in the end? Guess all the cheering must have helped!I didnt know there was so much story line to them!

I have never heard of this. I think just seeing the horse tricks alone would make it worth going to, but with all the other things going on it it would be even more entertaining. Too bad you don't have more pictures. I always love your travel pictures.
