The Astros looked AMAZING in their throwbacks tonight

The Colt .45 throwbacks are not accurate and not feasible for permanent use.  The Rainbow Warrior jerseys of the lates 70s and early 80s are really ugly and dated, no matter how fondly and/or ironically we recall them.

But seriously: give me one friggin’ good reason why the Astros should not go with the throwbacks they wore tonight as their full-time official uniform next year:

Those are AMAZING. They have the star-H cap logo, which is just perfect. The colors are great.  The jersey logo is admittedly a bit nostalgic/dated, but not terribly so. It’s hard to not like a shooting star.

Really, give me one good reason they shouldn’t keep these bad boys.
