Free Tacos for Everyone!


Thanks to Tampa Bay Ray Jason Bartlett, no one in America will go hungry tomorrow. Bartlett, a shortstop for the struggling Rays (down 3–1 to Philadelphia in the World Series), stole second base in the bottom of the fifth inning of game one. This feat of derring-do means all of America can walk into their local Taco Bell between the hours of 2 and 6 p.m. tomorrow and pick up a free “Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco.” The “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion will save you about 89 cents. According to the Taco Bell rules, you’ll get your free taco as long as you’re in line before 6 p.m., but one means one: “Participating Taco Bell restaurant manager reserves the right to deny Free Taco to any person he/she reasonably believes has already received a Free Taco or has engaged in any other fraudulent activity.” Go Phillies!
