Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is used to facing tough opponents head on, but none can compare to taking on a bull at the infamous running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain yesterday.
A video shows Norman jumping over a bull as if it were a car, and immediately afterward he took to his Instagram story to share his initial reaction.
“Where else was I supposed to go?” he said. “I had to face the bull straight on. It was a great experience. It was one the best experiences ever.”
Later in the day, Norman shared a picture of him in the bull arena.
Norman has been eyeing a run with the bulls since 2016, when he named it as one of his possible offseason activities, he said to VCCB in Charlotte.
Perhaps if he had known that five people have been gored in this year’s bull run, he would have been more hesitant. Or perhaps not. The San Fermina fiesta lasts nine days and began on Sunday, attracting people from across the globe, ESPN reports.
