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 my feelings.
"Bulls on Parade" for me only brings to mind the picture of the clownish cow art that was at one time scattered throughout Houston.
