Run with the Bulls

LORELAI: Here in my hand I have the pictures and resumes of the top three contenders.
SOOKIE: Anyone good?
LORELAI: No, but two of them have run with the bulls.

A running of the bulls is an event where participants run in front of a small group of bulls through sectioned off streets. The most famous one is is Pamplona, Spain, which takes place at the San Fermin Festival in July each year. The running of the bulls begins at 8 am, and participants must be over 18, not incite the bulls, and cannot be influenced by alcohol. By tradition, participants wear white shirts and trousers with a red kerchief. There are six bulls and nine steers to encourage the bulls. Every year, between 50 and 100 people are injured during the running of the bulls. Since 1910, 15 people have been killed, nearly all by being gored to death.
