Taking the Blood out of Bullfighting

by Zach Dundas

July 13, 2010
I have mixed feelings about bullfighting. On the one hand: Man. Bull. Danger! Death! Beauty! Romance! Tradition! I can’t think of a more pure distillation of the whole concept of “sport.” On the other hand: gross. Taunting, tormenting, and provoking an enormous packet of sentient doom may produce a riveting cultural spectacle, but it also seems to violate some other definitions of “sport,” the idea that contests should, on some level, aspire to fairness. And, probably, not involve the death of one participant.

Kind of makes your softball team look pathetic, doesn’t it?
