As though the fact that we’re proud Bostonians wasn’t enough incentive to root root root for the home team over the next five to fifteen days, now there are two further draws. First, as you undoubtedly know if you’re a regular over at Jordan’s Furniture, back in March, Eliot and Barry offered a killer deal to patrons: anyone who purchased furniture between March 7 and April 16 would get a full refund if, and only if, the Sox won the series. Although the Tatelmans won’t disclose just how much money they might have to shell out, the Globe reports that they took out a separate insurance policy to provide for such a scenario, so don’t worry, they won’t have to shut down MOM or anything.
As regular readers know, we are no great fan of fast food chains. We are, however, exceedingly fond of free things. Given those two criteria, we’re a bit torn about how we should feel about Taco Bell’s latest promotion: steal a base, steal a taco, wherein if any player steals a base during the World Series, you can get a free Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco. On the one hand, Taco Bell is gross, but on the other hand, free stuff! We’ll let you make up your own mind on this one, but in the meantime, go Sox!!!!!
