There are many sports amateurs may enjoy solely for the love of the game. Bullfighting is not one of them.

An average of 20 participants die each year in the "Corralejas," which have been held annually for more than 150 years in towns across Colombia's northern plains. The only certain survivors in the arena are the bulls themselves. The six-day event takes place every January in the state of Sucre and is described by locals as an explosive and sometimes lethal mixture of alcohol, music, violence and machismo.

Think Mardi Gras with 2000 pound killing machines running wild.  And you think you're sore after a couple of hours of flag football.  Pussy.
