Imagine another team used that as their defense's nick name.

Imagine if you were into shit talking.

Do you not see the plethora of material you have to work with?

I'm sure we can be all, "No, you guys are using it all wrong. The name refers to the socialistic Rage against the Machine song with the same title."

& they'll be, "Oh, thank you for pointing that out. Let me find something else more appropriate to make fun of."

Hell no, you'll see pictures of Brian Cushing, Brooks Reed, & Antonio Smith wearing Tutu's for years to come.

It's ridiculous.

If they want to adopt that as their theme song.... great, I'll jam along when I hear it at Reliant, I'll think about them when I hear it on the radio, I'll make it my freak'n ringtone for Mario Williams.

But I'm not calling the Texans' defense Bulls on Parade.

Anyway, love the reference. Rage against the Machine is far from "gay" (Excuse the hate mongering.)
I thought Grams meant the happy kinda' gay. The word does have more than one definition, you know.

If you have to go with a nickname go "Raging Bulls" with the Bulls on Parade as the theme music...
I like it...at least as it contrasts to the nick in question.

I don't see a sarcastic smilie there.

Grams is short for Grandma and she is a she not a he and she is not XXX.

You should know using the term "gay" can lead to neg rep from some posters.
Not I, but a couple of posters get offended.

"Bulls on Parade" addresses the American military-industrial complex, a situation in which industry (the arms industry, primarily) urges government to take military action, with the intent of obtaining military contracts, to thereby increase its revenue. The idiom "bulls on parade" refers to a bull market. The symbol may also mean the muscularity of American responses to complex problems.

Imo I don't think the name is "Gay". I also don't think it fits as a name for our Defense.

As a fairly new member to this board I was glad to read through this thread to be honest.

I learned that too many people fake being offended by the use of words like gay.
I learned that we are really way too focused on giving our towns defense a nickname.
I learned about some music, I learned about the true definition of parade.

I am a bit confused about some people freaking out about the misuse of the word Parade and giving out its origins while at the same not reading up on the origins of the word gay and giving poor negative repped Grams the benefit of the doubt for using a word that in most social circles is still used to talk shit to friends.

Anyways, the fireplace is almost out of wood I have to go toss in another ******. Good thread through.

Your post is one huge-ass parade of gayness.

I'm not sure which offends me more, the fact that there's gayness, or the fact that you've chosen to parade it in such a manner.

Also, the phrase "talk shit" gives me a bad taste in my mouth.

Now, please stay on topic, and help us think of a name for the defense.
It's very important, as we all know.

Additionally, successfully naming the defense might be the only way you can atone for your aforementioned gayness.

You simply need to supply the disclaimer "not that there's anything wrong with that" immediately after the statement, and everything's good.



Bulls on Parade (not that there's anything wrong with that)!
