Running of the Bulls
OMG! OMG! OMG!
Outdoor Life Network (DirecTV 608) is showing the running of the bulls from Pampalona every day through July 16. OMG! We just watched day 2’s highlights and it is INCREDIBLE.
I don’t mean to sound like some sicko, but I’m sooo rooting for the bulls. On Day 1, once all the bulls were in the ring, one bull leapt over the wall and up into the crowd. He was just chasing people down the hallway. It was incredible to see some giant, 500+ kilo bull just jump this retaining wall. Awesome! On day 2, several guys were gored (not pretty) including one guy that got tossed several times and then just driven into the ground by this “smaller” bull. It was unbelievable to see.
Most of the running is just people and bulls running horns to asses down a cobblestone street, so I don’t want you think that it’s all blood and (pun) gore, but if you are a sports fan, bull fan, or a fan of human stupidity — you have got to watch the running of the bulls.
