Celebrate Good Times, C'mon: Astros Breaking Out the Rainbow Jerseys Tomorrow
Tomorrow brings a rare chance to see awful-jersey awesomeness, as the Astros will be wearing their love-'em-or-hate-'em rainbow jerseys.
Each month this season brings a different throwback jersey for Friday night home games, and it's the rainbow's turn.
The first two months featured the smoking-gun Colt .45 jersey and the fine-looking shooting star. Things will be going downhill from here on in, though.
J.R. Richard will be on hand to celebrate his placement on the Astros' Walk of Fame, but not to have his jersey retired (unless the Astros are planning a surprise announcement).
The first 10,000 fans will also get a rainbow-jersey shirt, which of course will be festooned with corporate logos.
At least the team will be wearing the pure, hideous version. Get ready to be dazzled.
