News, but not the serious kind
On the horns of a dilemma?
Blog Guy, may I get a little serious here?
I really wish you wouldn’t.
Thanks. Last week when you wrote about El Señor Magoo, the matador with bad eyesight, some of the commenters mentioned going to bullfights and rooting for the bull. Is that allowed?
Yes, I’m sure it must be. What possible logic could there be in only allowing folks to root for the matador?
I mean, imagine saying, “I’d like to go to the Raptors/Pistons game tonight, but they’re only letting Raptors fans in.”
Yeah, when you put it that way…
In fact, let’s extend that sports analogy a bit, even though bullfighting isn’t really a sport.
If only one team was playing VOLUNTARILY, and the other was being FORCED to play, then I imagine everybody would root for the unwilling underdog.
The more I think about it, the more I’m sure they must have to PAY a few poor slobs to root for the matador at these things!
I bet you’re right, Blog Guy. How much cash would it take to get YOU to root for the bullfighter?
There’s not enough money on earth.
