Matador Jose Tomas suffered one of those professional hazards Sunday when he got gored twice during a bullfight in Madrid. One of them was to the groin. My voice just climbed a few pitches thinking about it.
The 32-year-old, who is widely considered one of the best bullfighters of all time, was competing at the Las Ventas bullring in the Spanish capital when he sustained his injuries.
Tomas, who received medical treatment at the scene, sustained one groin injury that looked exceptionally painful.
You don't say. I'm surprised the writer didn't walk up to the matador after the fight and say "You mess with the bull, you get the horns!" while giggling and playing with a bubble blowing wand. I know I was.
Tomas, who retired in 2002 only to return last year, is known for taking his teddy bears on tour with him for luck and possibly to scare away any pussy that might come his way. So, yeah, no harm done with the bull-induced castration.
