Jousting, Maryland's State Sport

Every state has its official sport, and NPR's Cynthia Johnston that in Maryland it is jousting. The state's version is far from a throwback to the deadly medieval contests, but competitors still approach the game like serious family tradition. Jousting may not draw large crowds, but Maryland's devotees say they enjoy the intimate feel of the outings.
