‘Don’t get caught’: Bulls and Bands bullfighting series debuts in Steamboat Springs
Steamboat Pilot and Today
Sometimes, professional bull fighter Wacey Munsell said, you “get caught.”
Munsell passes along that wisdom like someone might when they observe that sometimes it rains — an unavoidable part of the day that’s not even all that interesting.
“It’s not as bad as a lot of people think it looks,” he said Monday, July 10.
He got caught three times last week, for instance. He was working a rodeo in Greeley. Twice, a bull got into him while he was helping a cowboy.
“Unavoidable,” he said.
The third time it was Munsell’s turn to perform in a bullfighting event. That time, he admits, was avoidable.
“My fault,” he said. “That bull’s been around awhile. He just cut me off and ran me over.”
Don’t worry. He said he’s fine.
“They thought I might have a small concussion, and I aggravated a shoulder injury from February,” he said.
It certainly wasn’t enough to keep Munsell out of Steamboat Springs this week, where he’ll take part in the inaugural Bulls and Bands bullfighting event at Romick Rodeo Arena in downtown Steamboat Springs.
The opening event was the evening of July 12 and was the first of a three-event summer season for Bulls and Bands. The event returns July 19 and July 26. Tickets cost $20 online at BullsAndBands.com or $25 at the gate. Season passes, good for all three events scheduled this summer at the downtown arena, cost $60 for covered seating and $40 for non-covered seats.
