The Houston Astros began as the Colt 45s and Colt wanted to sue them so they changed the name to Astros.

???

Are you making that up? It is impossible to imagine a company being so stupid they would sue to put a stop to an incredible value in free advertisement.

I thought that the Houston franchise changed its name because they were the first baseball team to have a fully enclosed stadium and the turf was called "astroturf". (And also because NASA mission control was located in Houston. "Astro" = "astronaut....)
