He's aiming right at that kid!!
The Astros are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, and it will include wearing Colt .45 throwback jerseys for Friday home games.

The shirts will look just like those worn during the club's first season, except for one thing: They won't include the distinctive pistol that was part of the logo.

MLB.com's Alyson Footer reports the gun "was deemed inappropriate to include on a uniform."

But the Colt .45 name is fine? Maybe they should put a picture of malt liquor on the jerseys.

In protest, all fans should show up wearing Baltimore Bullets throwbacks on Friday nights.

Some Colt .45 imagery from back when men were men:

I am, clearly, a Dodgers fan...living in "Clutch City".  I dont understand why "the league" isnt helping you.  The Dodgers have ownership stuff we are dealing with.  The Astro's can solve many of theirs by giving Houston the opportunity to buy these jerseys.

What a stupid position.  Would it be better to include a can of beer since it better portrays the drunk fans?

Here we go again,the liberal left wing continus to influence and throw it's weight around .Their liberal agenda it's so powerful, that it  just caused,  not one team, or two, but the entire MLB to fold  There is one thing I dont understand about the liberal left ? Why arent they wearing panties and skirts, they sure dont have any balls?

"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

...here's an idea, just drop the "Houston."  Crane will move the team as soon as he can get out of the MMP lease.

In Houston these days, a Tech 9 would be more appropriate.

You're right. Go the malt liquor route with a picture of a 40 across the jersey. As Billy Dee always said, "Don't let the smooth taste fool you!"

In that case, F them.  Just use Houston Buff throwbacks and move on.

An intelligent person once said that vaginas are much tougher than balls. I decided to take it at face value since I wanted to avoid any contest to try to prove otherwise.

No.  Political correctness is what separates Americans from primates.  Basic human decency to one another.  Stop listening to/reading Gingrich/Santorum/Limbaugh.
