A Farewell to Joe Baumgartner

After Sunday's PBR championship round, legendary bullfighter Joe Baumgartner will be retiring after more than 20 years of fighting bulls and protecting bull riders. We're all in your debt Joe. At Salinas this year, I asked him about why he was retiring, and he simply said: "Time to do something else, I guess."

Best of luck Joe, I hope whatever you do next makes you very happy.
