I haven't been able to shake this image since I saw it a couple weeks ago.

Michael Lenahan, 23, of Philadelphia, Pa. is gored in the leg by a fighting bull during a traditional bull run in Pamplona, Spain, Thursday July 12, 2007. Two American brothers were gored Thursday during the longest and bloodiest morning bull run at the San Fermin festival in the northeastern city of Pamplona. Lawrence Lenahan, 26, of Hermosa Beach, Calif. and Michael Lenahan, 23, of Philadelphia, Pa. were gored by a bull who strayed from the pack, turned around and ran the wrong way.

Nice WW photo. Nice site in general. I'm a big Ryan Adams fan, but agree that he can be a little erratic live.

I do not get the running of the bulls thing for the life of me. Especially when you see it upclose like this! Wow...this is really a captivating picture!

Happy WW

Wow. It was bad enough when I first looked and thought it was only an inch or two under his skin... Until I realized it was all the way up to his knee. My knee will permanently be in empathy mode from now on.

i think this image has eternally scarred my brain. so so so sick. pretty much my worst nightmare.

Dainon said...

For the record, he wasn't all that hurt ... except for, you know, some blood and stuff. That's gonna be a great scar story to tell someday, though.

I'm with plainoldsarah. I may never be the same after viewing that photo.

Sweet! Not that I usually joy in another's pain...though there was this one time that my bro fell down the stairs, I slapped his butt and he flew down like an accordian wave, hilarious, but my ma didn't think so and wasn't keen on my laughing my guts out before helping him, he was fine...oh, and not that I plan on joining the Bull Run anytime in my lifetime!

At least he got a picture to go with the story. How many of us don't have that?
