Thus far I really like "Lead the pack" the best -- but I'm going to
hold this over for another 24 hours just in case someone comes in with
a fantastic late-breaking entry.
I like this one; however, I'd like to point out that lions travel in
prides... and wolves / wild dogs travel in packs. I'm not really a
nitpicker, and I think it sounds good, but other people (those much
more vocal than I :) ) may point out that the group of animals name
doesn't exactly match up with the lion, and make a big woop-dee-doo
about it. Just sayin' :)
Of course, "pride" does have some nice double-entendre action going
for it, so things like
"Lead with Pride" (or Lead the Pride?) would probably work well...
"Run with Pride" would have a nice double-meaning (run the OS with
pride, run with the pride of lions) - but I think the preferable thing
would be to imply leadership (with lead) rather than being with the
group (running with... not necessarily ahead). "Innovate with Pride"
could work too... "Create with Pride" ...Okay, that one sounds like a
label my mother would have sewn into my clothing at age 5, but I'm
just throwing ideas out here that fit with the image. :)
I'll add to the wiki, thoughts welcome... I love making last minute
