Bull run craze sweeping America

Move over NASCAR, a new sport is surging in America.

Thousands turn out for "The Great Bull Run" in Conyers, Georgia on Saturday - the second event of its kind in the United States.

Two people were injured in the first event in Virginia in late August, but with more runs already planned, it's proving to be a major draw for adrenaline junkies across the country.

    There were three things on my list: sky diving (which happened in late August), shark cage diving (which I'd like to do when I head to Cape Town in February), and the running of the bulls in Pamplona, with all the other foreigners who'd read "The Sun Also Rises." Heard it's only about a half mile, and most of the other participants are pretty inebriated, so I figure it'd be a matter of keeping enough of them between myself, my friends, and the bulls...

    Then again, at least with the sharks, there's a cage.
