It’s 2015, and I’m not sure why anyone in their right mind still wants to be a bullfighter.
It seems like everyday, I read another article about some Spanish matador getting absolutely annihilated by a bull.
Ok, maybe not everyday, but whenever I see a story about a bullfight, let’s just say it doesn’t usually end with the bull getting impaled. (RELATED: Spanish Matador In Critical Condition After Bull F***s His Day Up)
The latest illustration of my point takes the form of matador Marco Galan, who over the weekend proved that the human testicle is no match for a bull’s horns.
Somebody never saw “The Breakfast Club.”
Though he was able to leave the ring under his own power, Galan was rushed to the hospital with what the medical community calls an “eviscerated testicle.” Of his injury, Galan told The Local (Spain),”things happen when you go in the ring. But bad things can also happen just walking down the street… I love Las Ventas in Madrid, it’s my favourite bullring, but on Sunday it just didn’t go my way.”
Understatement of the century.
