The bullfight was hard, very hard; for the bullfighters, because they had to dodge some of the dullest of the most difficult bulls, and for the public, who returned to the arena with the hope of re-greening the laurels of the previous day and were greatly disappointed.
The rancher sent a bullfight not exceeding kilograms (the heaviest bull weighed 562 on the scales), but with a seriousness that commanded great respect, with large masts and astyphine pythons. But it soon became clear that this was nothing more than a facade. They did not resist with sticks, and some sang of their meekness as soon as they felt the puja on their skin. They were somewhat more collaborative in the banderillas, leading to the showing of good silver bullfighters such as Juan Contreras, Raul Ruiz, Abraham Neuro and, especially, José Chacón and Fernando Sanchez, who both played an exciting second third in the fourth bull. .
But these were the only loud cheers of the day; Well, there was another attachment to Gonzalo Caballero, who was forced to salute when the paseoillo was broken because he was returning to Las Ventas after a very serious injury that he received in this square on October 12, 2019 and from which he cost him the whole world to recover.
And another received at the end of the sixth bull, the only one that allowed the bullfighter to concentrate on his work, because he retained a small dose of nobility that his brothers lacked.
Caballero was much shorter than his opponent, but that was normal. After this massacre, he only dressed for the light last year in Navalcarnero, in a one-on-one duel with Enrique Ponce. And, logically, there was a lack of skill and precautions typical of someone who still has the memory of many nights in the hospital’s intensive care unit in his head. But he did not disappoint, he stood still, pulled worthy crutches, was tuned and correct. The audience did not utter a word and perfectly understood the special position of the bullfighter. His first didn’t want to fight, he broke shortly after he started with a crutch and looked for boards in a clear sign that he was throwing in the towel. Caballero could not help but become an artist.
All the culture that comes with you is waiting for you here.
Ferrera and Luque stocked up on patience and with stoic responsibility withstood the vote that chance had prepared for them. The one who opened the square did not give his fighter a single confidence, and the fourth one humiliated him in the first round with a crutch, but immediately after that, without knowing why, he protested and sang clearly that the ram was not yours.
Luque was very serious with his first, an animal that gave free rein to every impulse, and the hat did not do anything good, which was digging all the time while in the ring and was as dull as her companions.
In the end, it became clear that tomorrow would be another day, and that good facades meant nothing. Of course not.
