Notice that we were sitting in the Black Knight's rooting section for the joust. He won, well actually he was found to have cheated, so the later show (which we skipped) had a challenge fight to the death! We can only hope Divine Providence had him correcting (not just contemplating) the error of his ways and that he finally triumphed honestly!! "Deo Gratias!!" : )
