A Giant Steals a Base and Everyone Gets a Doritos Locos Taco

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!
