What's better than watching the Giants win a game in the World Series? Yep, lots of things. Including a Doritos Loco Taco. (Why are baseball wounds so hard to heal?)

Last night when Giants outfielder Angel Pagan stole second base during the eighth inning, he actually stole one for the whole team. And by whole team, I mean 'Merica! In the "Steal A Base, Steal A Taco" promotion the Bell promised a free taco for everyone if a base was stolen during the series. From the press release:

"If the first stolen base occurs during Games One through Four, America will get free Doritos® Locos Tacos on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 20 p.m. to 6 p.m."

Unfortunately it's only a one-time thing. We don't get free tacos every time a base is stolen ... just once. So, set the alarm clock for next Tuesday at 2 p.m. Party at the Bell!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
