Bulls behaving badly, or chalk one up for the good guys?

So an award winning matador was gored to death in the ring this weekend. Obviously this is a terrible blow to his family, and my sympathies certainly go out to them...but I can't be the only one who is rooting for the bulls, right?

Re: Bulls behaving badly, or chalk one up for the good guys?

Kind of remind me of old joke:

An American tourist in Spain goes to a restaurant and notices another guy eating some weird thing. He calls the waiter and says, "Excuse me. Can I have that same dish, please?"

The waiter says, "No sir, You can't."

He asks, "Why not?"

Waiter: "Because, sir, they are the balls of a bull."

Man: "So what? I want them!"

Waiter: "No, sir. You dont understand. Here in Spain, bullfights occur, and the balls of the bull are chopped off and supplied to our restaurant, so we get only one pair of bull's balls a day. If you like, I'll reserve the next pair for you."

Man: "Okay, I'll come back tommorow."

The next day, the man goes in and is served a pair of small balls. Outraged he asks, "What the hell is this! Yesterday's balls were much bigger!"

Waiter : You don't understand something, sir. Sometimes the bull wins."

I saw the clip of the goring and I was surprised at how swift and bloodless it actually was. Dude was impaled and died almost instantly. He bled in as opposed to bled out.

This statement from the article was peculiar:

Now the lineage of Lorenzo the bull is set to end. As tradition dictates, the rancher will send his mother cow to the slaughterhouse.

And what does the victor get as a reward? The slaughtering of his mother!

Mess with the bull - you get the horns.
Live by the bull horns, die by the bull horns.

He knew the risks.

Saw the clip... was nowhere near as violent as the other gorings I've seen.
At one point the matador had this "I'm fucked" expression on his face. He was either dead or dying at that point.

So I guses the bull won the match... does it get a trophy or something?

Tradition. One of humanity's most stupid inventions.

As if bullfighting wasn't depressing enough. 😥

No sympathy here either. They abused the animals, and this time one of them lost.

Eh. No big loss.

I always root for the bull to skewer these dipshits. Same with the running of the bulls.

But that's not all.

The Special Spanyerds that they are, will proudly poke their grilled wonderfulness with forks and knives, proclaiming and thereby solidifying, their manhood.

Sounds to me as if Spaniards are sore losers.

Can anybody explain to me why that article included the below picture of his wife?

Her husband had a huge insurance policy and now she's celebrating.

Rumours are she was having an affair with the bull the whole time.

Cuz it's always a tragedy when something bad happens to young pretty people, especially women. The picture is just to establish that a hot girl is involved here.

well, yeah, now we know that the matador won't be getting any more of that.

OTOH, she's back on the market!

In touch with local culture, she must be gored.
