Blinded By The Sight Of The Astros
For those of you who remember the ’70s, you remember the vibrant colors that were ubiquitous in every facet of life. The in-your-face clothes and cars and other things could not be avoided. Remember Dance Fever? Remember the all-important disco ball and lights and of course, the music of the time?
The world of sports was no different, as the inaugural Houston Astros baseball uniforms were a dazzling array of orange, yellow, and gold. A touch of a blue star balanced out the wild colors. It might seem funny now that a baseball team wore a rainbow out on the baseball field, but those were the “good times!” Do you hear that Chic guitar riff playing in your head?
