What does it take to be a Matador - besides baring and shaking your big belly? Everette Michael Jackson, a Matador since 2009, explains five must-haves for members of the Bulls dance group. 1. Practice: During the season, the guys rehearse four hours a week across two days. 2. Fearlessness: You can never hold back when performing in front of 20,000 people at a game. "You have to have nerves of steel," Jackson said. 3. Quick thinking: A Matador has "to be able to freestyle in the case of a music malfunction or another disaster," Jackson said.
