Americans who want to entertain the risk of possibly getting gored by a bull won't have to travel all the way to Pamplona, Spain anymore. They can now brush with death in their own country!
A mere 23 people were injured during the most recent running of the bulls, which somehow is still a thing people do. The Associated Press has a gruesome rundown of the misfortunes that befell these silly twats, many of whom collided and bottlenecked at the entrance to the bull ring. Bulls then trampled, hurdled and…
After photos emerged of the Jets coach taking part the annual Running of the Bulls, it was only a matter of time before video surfaced. Reader John was in Pamplona, and after realizing Ryan was there too, reviewed his footage.
"Spain is different to anything I've experienced before,' said Michael Arraztoa, 25, from Bakersfield, California."
We don't want to live in a world where the San Fermin Festival goes off without us seeing a naked dude get absolutely wrecked by a confused, cornered half-ton of beef. Thankfully, those who ventured to Pamplona did so without their inhibitions, their fears, and sometimes their clothes.

Not a good weekend for bulls internationally.
A 27-year-old Spaniard (not pictured) was gored to death, when a 1,130-pound bull (that's him there) broke loose from the Pamplona pack and went understandably crazy. It's the first goring death at the famous bull run in 14 years.
Yes, right about now, 95% of the inhabitants of tiny Pamplona, Spain are getting good and sloshed to prepare for the annual San Fermin "religious" festival where large creatures are loosed upon Hemingway-inspired college kids through a wooden maze. Par-tay.
Some of you are not old enough to remember the Cabbage Patch Riots of 1983, a dark time in our history when lawlessness ruled; where roving gangs of middle-aged women in housecoats would beat you senseless for a children's doll.

I think I'm missing some subtle wordplay here. Why would they call him Mr. Testi...oh you clever Spanish devils you. Mr. Testis is the mascot for the San Fermin Festival.
If you don't count the stuff that goes on in Michael Vick's backyard, then the annual Running of the Bulls in Spain is probably my least favorite sporting event. My favorite sporting event? Well, I think that's been well documented. High five! But I have to admit that every year at this time, I root for the bulls.
