Well, I know it wasn't the Washington Bullets!

I suppose we can expect to see the Green Bay Vegans and the Denver Latte Grande's any day now...

macavada and f4t9r got it!

The Colt 45s. Wow. I just read in today's paper.

What a different world. Democrats were conservative and public school students actually learned to count past 1 in the Bill of Rights.

Probably just as good. Add in the "Lucky Strikes" and we'd have an ATF league.:)

Didn't the one actor, married to that Angelina Jolie chick, played in "Slingblade", Billy Bob something or other . . . can't remember his name, wear a Colt .45s hat a few years ago when all that retro sports wear was popular (people were even wearing old Negro leagues stuff).

Yeah. I remember Billy Bob Thornton wearing that hat. I used to see a few of them every now and again when I lived in Corpus Christi.

Didn't they have to drop the name due to copyright complaint from Colt?

IIRC, Colt 45 was malt liquor.
