    Trivia Question -- What was the original name of the Houston Astros when they were an expansion team in 1962?

    (Hint: It's gun-related - How times have changed!)

    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...

    Ding Ding Ding!

    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.
