The Winner Will Face Malibu in the Preliminary Round

BARRE, Vt. – A Vermont mayor who agreed in fun to a jousting match with padded sticks and helmets ended up in the emergency room after he broke some ribs.

Sunday’s joust at a festival in Barre was a modern-day re-enactment of a fabled fist fight over the city’s naming. Mayor Thomas Lauzon and Jeff Blow, chairman of the town’s selectboard, teetered on padded pedestals in the middle of a ring as they wielded their jousting sticks.

The Barre-Montpelier Times Argus reports Blow toppled Lauzon in less than 15 seconds and the mayor returned the favor with a below-the-belt thrust.

In a deciding third match, Lauzon broke his ribs when he lunged toward Blow and slammed into his pedestal. The mayor’s wife, Karen Lauzon, said Monday he’s OK

You can cheat on your wife with all the Argentinians you want or buy as many $5,000 hookers you want with public funds, but you better not step up to the Pedestal as my Mayor and walk off with broken ribs.

I mean, how am I supposed to have confidence in my elected official in The Eliminator when he can’t even get through the Joust?

For Sure NOT Lose The Joust If You Are The Mayor
