This story examines a group of enthusiasts that simulates medieval combat.
I find it interesting the participants are dismissively referred to as "nerds" even though, from the sound of it, this activity takes a great deal of physical ability.
Why is this more worthy of ridicule than football?
Frankly, it is considerably more masculine than pro wrestling.
Maybe we should mock men that pay to watch other men in underwear wrap their arms and legs around each other.
