This is one bull that takes the role of underdog seriously.  A bullfighter's apprentice was frighteningly gored in the rear end and lifted into the air by his horned challenger in Madrid on Sunday. Rafael Cerro, a rising star in the controversial "sport" of bullfighting, was wounded while taking on his first bull of the night at the Las Ventas ring. Amazingly, the 23-year-old matador — making a comeback after being gored in the stomach two months ago —walked away with just a sore butt and a bruised ego. The doomed bull, unfortunately, was probably not so lucky.
