Astros will be giving away a Colt .45s jersey without the Colt .45

The Astros will be giving away these jerseys this Friday, April 20 at the Astros/Dodgers game. Notice anything? No Colt .45.

The Astros' twitter feed was kind enough to respond to a snarky tweet explaining what happened:
This was ordered in December when we didn't have permission to use the revolver...complete jersey in September.

Although, it must be said: To give away a jersey with just a wisp of smoke on 4/20 is ballsy indeed. Especially in Houston.

Man those are lame, they do not even have the .45 on it. It make them sounds like their mascot is a horse.

Lame, undoubtedly, but do I see a potentially valuable collectors' item? 8-)
