Olé, AC! For some reason the joy of running in front of a bull going the same place I am has always been lost on me. I'm thinking... yield, I am never in that much of a hurry.

Ah yes, I can remember some many years ago in my youth when I was stationed at an airbase in Spain, I took a long car ride in a Volkswagon "Bug" from Madrid up to Pamplona to see the running of the Bulls. I spent 2 nights there and
there was not enuff Vino in the entire country that would have given me the cajones/courage to get out in the fenced off street and run a few feet in front of a bunch of Big pissed off bulls with long sharp horns. So I just got mellow from the wine and I sat on the fence and watched as a bunch of young dummies with Red bandanas ran in front of the raging Bulls and I watched as they got stepped on, ran over and gored in the assets. Years ago my Dad told me, Son, if you mess with the Bull, you get the Horns. And I always kept that in mind during my brief stay in Pamplona, Spain. So I just sat in the same Cafe that Ernest Hemmingway once drank in , and I drank some vino and watched the beautiful senorita's go by as I also watched an ambulance pick up some of the bull runners. :>)

Anderson:
I think if the Spaniards watched American demolition derby they would question our sanity as well. But we don't celebrate it on a yearly event; we just watch it every weekend during the summer at every county fairground in America. It is not bulls slice and dicing humans, but it is humans trying to deliberately ruin some real nice old cars.

That running of the bulls looks like animal abuse to me (and the bullfighting that comes later surely is), and I have no sympathy for the gored. I also wish every bullfighter on the planet would be gored--to death, slowly and painfully.

I saw the piece earlier on CNN with the running of the bulls and the story on the two American brothers gored in the run.
What a shot of the day for the cameraman and to comment on the brothers...OUCH..enough said.

A bull run? What a lovely way to spend the day!! Fleeing for one's life, praying not to be knocked down, trampled into the soil by a hoof or thrown into the air by the force of bull horns...Yep, I can have a real daydream moment thinking on that one..or I could have a similar experience and make a run for a sale at Macy's...Decisions, decisions!

And people call THEM dumb animals! Go figure!

I agree with Gypsy. I always root for the bulls. Anybody that stupid should be gored.
