One-Eyed Bullfighter Gored In The Eye Again

One-eyed torero “El Pirata,” who lost an eye in 2011 after being gored, has been gored in the eye again.  

Juan José Padilla—known as “El Pirata” due to the eyepatch he’s worn since that incident in Madrid five years ago—suffered the goring yesterday in Zaragoza at the horns of 523-kilo Aguador. Padilla, who was diagnosed with a concussion, should probably find a new profession.
