Too late. I seem to recall seeing DeMeco in a "Bulls on Parade" t-shirt a week or so ago.

YOU tell him his shirt is stupid.
I'll watch.

Default Re: Name Our Defense

I think the reason so many hate the idea of Bulls On Parade is because they aren't thinking outside the box with the term "parade" and what it means. Let me demonstrate...

pa·rade/pəˈrād/
Noun:
A public procession, esp. one celebrating a special day or event and including marching bands and floats.

Verb:
Walk or march in public in a formal procession or in an ostentatious or attention-seeking way.

So you take it as a verb, instead of a noun, and now you have exactly what this defense did all year. They were on a march, or a mission if you will, to publicly show their vulgar or pretentious display(ostentatious) way of stomping a mud hole in you and walking it dry each and every play. That is what this defense did each and every week, for the most part, especially in the playoffs. They were Bulls on Parade....

Some of yall are comparing it to Gay Pride, which I think there is some tendencies that need to be addressed, or some Macy's Thanksgiving Parade (the Noun portion) but if you dig deeper into the meaning, it fits this defense...

It's not Bulls in a Parade, It's Bulls on Parade, or Bull's on march, a mission, a quest, to absolutely dominate you....

at least that's what I got out of it...

Because all good nicknames should need a 4 paragraph explanation that includes a vocabulary lesson to explain why they are in fact not bad nicknames.

Perhaps future editions of the T-shirt should print your post on the back to sway those who just don't seem to be warming up to it.

Bulls on Parade is an awesome name for our defense and I feel is a perfect fit.

To me it has the ring of a confident defense that has swagger and has fun because they know they cant be stopped.

Not to mention the music (RATM) is sick, and gets people including myself pumped up big time!

Hey, not my fault some folks vocabulary is limited...Guess that is the downside of the American Education System to think of "Gay Pride" of Macy's Day when you hear the word parade....

just need to think outside the box....

Seriously. The Ravens have consistently been one of the best defenses for the past decade.

They did not gloss themselves before they did anything. NFL Films did not gloss them, sportswriters and fans did not gloss them, they just consistently come out and kick ass.

That question says it all, TK. Well done, sir.

I don't care if they call themselves "Sgt. Phillips Lonely Sacks Club Band", as long as they keep bringing the pain like they did last week.
