Feeling Bullish

Why are drivers, managers, teams etc. always described as ‘bullish’ before the next race/season? I thought this was just a joke in the F1 Manager game, but journalists really do use it, all the time (the latest: Schumacher feeling bullish). Note that the people involved never used the word, e.g. ‘I’m feeling vaguely bullish today’, it is always and interpolation added by the writer, i.e. ‘they’re feeling bullish’.

It’s an utterly horrid word, completely inappropriate to the sport (I also hate James Allen describing the cars as thoroughbred horses – they’re cars, not animals), and I vote for a veto on it.

In other news, the answer to ‘Guess the Race’: Hungary. I think it was Massa avoiding Klien.
