Bulls on Parade is not intimidating. I understand what it means, but it still comes across as passive. The Bulls are walking down the street. There is no raw aggression that comes to me when I think of that nickname.
Thus, I don't care for it.
Exactly how I feel except I would have to change "I don't care for it" to "I hate the pansy-like connotation."
The question I would have to ask is when you think of "Bulls on Parade," do you picture
