Esquire Net Talks With Gored Pamplona Runner

Esquire Network’s “Running Of The Bulls 2014” multi-night coverage netted a hospital-bed interview with Bill Hillman, the Chicago man who was gored in the right leg Wednesday by one of the bulls running in the street in Pamplona, Spain.

Hillman, who co-wrote a book called “How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona,” restated that he intends to run in the streets during the festival again, though he said “my wife doesn’t want me to run, of course.” Hillman said he was “feeling good, I’m not feeling any pain, thankfully,” though he wasn’t getting much sleep, what with all the people calling him for interviews.

NBCUniversal-owned Esquire Network is in the midst of eight straight nights’ coverage of the festival. Live coverage airs 2-2:30 a.m. ET (and 2-2:30 a.m. PT on tape delay) until Monday, July 14. There's also a YouTube channel.
