Then there were two

It's a reference to Hemingway's alleged quote that Bullfighting, mountain climbing, and car racing were the only true sports... The rest were games.

Catalonia just saw it's last bullfight last Sunday pending a ban Jan 1.

I saw the great Manolo dispatch two bulls at that very ring in 1970 - Not something I am likely to forget ever.


He didn't kiss either on the forehead first, though.

Oh well, there's always quaffing absinthe and bare-knuckle boxing with Cuban fishermen on the docks...
