The running of the bulls, or "encierro" in Pamplona, Spain during the festival of San Fermin has been going on for centuries. Most of you are probably familiar with the event where hundreds of crazy people run through the ancient city streets and try to avoid being destroyed by very large bulls, with very large horns. But in all those years, there has never been a run like today's.

One of those crazy people was 2007 Penn State alumnus Justin Casavant, who elected to tempt fate while paying homage to Nittany Lion legend Saquon Barkley. As any right thinking Penn State fan knows, when you come at Saquon, you do so at your own risk.

If that looks at all familiar, it may remind you have perhaps Barkley's most impressive play from September's thrilling victory over Iowa.
Yeah this is getting a retweet from me, dawg. Saw the clip in here showing you actually taking the hit from the bull and this is all I could think about pic.twitter.com/5Y2anuJlVX

Sources close to the situation have informed Roar Lions Roar that Casavant is indeed fine, and is in fact considering taking part in Saturday morning's running, albeit at a "safer" point along the route
