In Gene Martino Jr's own words, this is what happened:

"I was jousting Leland Coleman, got to the end of the list and could not lower or move my right arm. Lance had skittered across my breast plate, under the RIGHT pauldron and went between and through some of the lames. As I recall Knight Cody Powell even tried to extricate it to no avail. I exited the list, had the pauldron completely removed, but the show was basicall over before I was able to go again. Hence the term: "lame excuse!" I just felt like a bug on a stick! My horse was completely nonplussed and remained calm throughout." -- Gene Martino Jr
