Finger Jousting for four years

As of today I have been a member of the World Finger Jousting Federation for four years!

My current Goldbergian* winning streak of 66 matches undefeated is unparalleled in the sport of Finger Jousting, with my all-time career record from 117 bouts standing at 105 wins, 3 ties and only 9 losses.

In total I have faced 27 different opponents, in 20 locations (including matches in Finland and Austria).

On the 1st August 2010 the WFJF celebrated its fifth birthday.

Details of official World Finger Jousting Federation (WFJF) 'Point Play Rules' are below:
"In point play, different parts of the body count for different amounts of points. The legs and latent arm count as one point. The chest, back, and neck count as two points. The head counts as three points. Point play matches are played to six for tournaments, but when playing leisurely any number above two is allowed."

This match took place on the 25th March 2007.
