So, we thought we should let you know about this weekend’s Cardboard Tube Fighting Tournament. Just your regular old Sunday afternoon activity, right? Sure, you probably get your cardboard tube battle in regularly, but it’s not everyday there’s a full-on tournament. Oh, and just in case your usual cardboard tube is in the shop, they’ll be happy to provide you one on site. So there’s really no excuse not to come and battle your heart out. To be honest, we’re not exactly sure how one decides who wins in a cardboard tube battle. First one to draw blood from a paper cut? Hard to say. But whether you want to throw down or just ogle, the rest of the city’s cardboard enthusiasts will surely be happy to see you at the square on Sunday.As much as it may be new to you (really?), this weekend’s event is actually part of a larger Cardboard Tube Fighting League (of course). And while the idea of a cardboard tube fighting league might make you shake your head and mutter, “only in Baltimore…” you may be interested to know that it’s a national (even international, perhaps?) movement. And why not? Cardboard is one of our most plentiful resources, and everyone loves a good joust now and then. Or at least the opportunity to watch one from a safe distance and go, “huh?”
The Baltimore Cardboard Tube Fighting Tournament takes place this Sunday, July 27 at the Square in Fells Point at 4:00pm. For more information, visit the Facebook page.
