Wuss or Wise? Matador Flees Ring
I guess that video and picture of the matador who was gored with the bull’s horns coming out of his chin and mouth must have had a pretty widespread effect on the bullfighting community at-large. How else do you explain Christian Hernandez peacing out midfight and hopping over a wall to avoid the horns? Maybe it’s because he was gored in the leg months before and didn’t want to relive it, or maybe it was that traumatic photo. Anyway, check out Christian Hernandez doing the unthinkable and ask yourself the question: idiot or genius? Here’s the video of matador Christian Hernandez fleeing the ring courtesy of Jimmy Traina at SI Hot Clicks:
If you were wondering about the consequences of Hernandez’s actions, well they were stiff. Initially he was arrested by police for breach of contract and brought back to the ring where he fled once again. Some might deride Hernandez for his cowardice but I’ll go another direction: he’s the smart one while the other matadors are the idiots. Think about it.
