The last word of this bullfighting fair in San Mateo was like a trip back in time. To past and future times. To the old bullfights that Morante tried to resurrect and the current bull is determined to end, and the future bullfights that Roca Rey heralded.
Meanwhile, Diego Urdiales’ famous ‘carpe diem’. Diego is the current, current and perennial bullfight. Until Sunday for sure. So punctual, so necessary, so contemporary and immortal. It’s as strange as it is hard to believe. And sometimes to understand.
Urdiales’ task for the fifth, awarded two trophies, was a deal of strength, intelligence, pleasure, and bullfighting. First of all, bullfighting. At first there was control. In the first two rounds, intelligence by the right python, who is short, regular and light to break the ‘Player’ in natural bullpup. Because naturally, it was there when a work of bullfighting and facts was born. Firmness and flavor.
The native of Urdiales is as present as it is timeless. Four times very well marked, differentiated and separated. sincere embroque; the way to get the fare on flights; the same attack was humiliated and suppressed below the bullfighter’s center of gravity; and the auction always hugs beyond the hip. Always very slow and slow. So majestic. Again, delicate bullfighting. millimeter Urdiales cracked the ‘Player’ as he received the real sword. The thrust dropped and Cuvillo was slow to lean.
From this perpetual bullfight we go to what will become of bullfighting not long after 2025. It’s just a matter of time. After the Urdiales, Roca Rey went out and swapped a few speedwells with three or four chicuelina in the salute. More chicuelinas, two too tight, came to lift. Then the rear shifters and the round ones stumbled.
Also the suburban bullfight where the crutch is always out. The ‘Madrilito’ pythons passed very close to the Peruvians. Without excessive bullfighting, taste, or command, everything needs to be said. Half made a move and was asked to queue. Welcome to the party of the nearest future. Unless, of course, there is no one to solve it.
Roca Rey took advantage of her first trip, which was somewhat short. This short attack enabled the Peruvian to find his enemy under him, as he finished the series that he conveyed to the most lines. On the third, it left a low push.
Cuvillo’s running was also up-to-date and predictable for the coming seasons: very little offense, very unstable and no shooting at all. Very, very lean with two or three bulls marking the pigs as a preference. There was a difference of almost two years between the fourth and fifth ones (08/18 – 10/16). This is how the details of the running of the bulls for the “superstar” celebration were taken care of.
The fourth one, as I said, lacked age, strength and wealth. First of all, age, strength, and availability (and no, that’s not a typo). Thank God it has been replaced by another bull that belongs to Juan Pedro as of today. Morante tried to travel with a ‘juampedro’ from the present, as I said, to the last century by bullfighting, and that proved nearly impossible. There was packaging and flavor both at the beginning and at the end of the two-handed job of getting the bull out to the media and capping it. By the way, big stroke and angry are two natural. He knelt down and waited for ‘Quarrel’ to clasp his hands. He did it in ‘Gallito’, but not after he subdued his enemy, took care of him and pampered him. He shortened the first with any kind of bull and always defended himself in bad ways.
Urdiales’ early work was bold enough to go unnoticed. Contemporary things. Urdiales was brought to the scene in front of a rough bull, fierce and hardly traveling. Parsed embrok in case something is missing. He emphasized Urdiales’ grace in taking him to the media, as well as his intelligence, reaching the best passages in bullfighting in the round. The value, of course, is to devour cinchona and cola. What a size of San Mateo, Urdiales! Gentlemen, enjoy the carpe diem, or the same, the Urdiales, the gift of bullfighting.
Arena of La Ribera de Logrono. The fourth and last of the San Mateo Fair. It’s full of lines. Lazy and outcast bulls from Núñez del Cuvillo with little presence as a whole; the good mood of the fifth and sixth place fighters stood out. A hat from Juan Pedro Domecq (4th) is manageable.
