Matador Fernando Cruz gored by bull, thrown like rag doll (Video)

Most people walk into a bullfight rooting for the matador to win. Not me. I’m all for the bulls. See, I’m all about the underdog. And if you’re going to blind the bulls and weaken them before they’re placed into a ring to be killed for our enjoyment, then I’m going to cheer when the stupid ritual backfires.

That’s what happened with Fernando Cruz on Wednesday in what’s being called the worst goring of the year in Madrid’s La Ventas ring.

Cruz is in stable condition and currently in intensive care at Virgen del Mar Hospital in Spain after being gored in the stomach. He’s expected to be in the hospital for at least 10 days.

This isn’t as bad as what happened with Juan Jose Padilla whose eye popped out after he was gored, but it looked pretty brutal. I’m guessing he’ll be back to waving his cape and slaying bulls in no time.
