The World Series is upon us. Yes, the Tigers failed to make the playoffs this year, which is a major downer. Well, as it snows at the home of the National League Champs and the BoSox prepare to host the Rockies in the 2007 World Series, there is a light for everyone in America. If any player from either of those two teams steals a base during the World Series, we can all get a free taco from Taco Bell! I am no psychic, I am no sports expert — in fact I hardly have time to be a fan of late — but those are pretty good odds. One stolen base through a potential of 63 innings of baseball is all it takes. If someone can advance 90 feet to allow us to steal a free taco in games one or two, Tuesday, 30 October 2007, will henceforth be known as Free Taco Day. If the first base is not stolen until games three through seven, then we are talking 6 November 2007.
So, who is ready for the World Series now? In a special treat, Fox messed up the postseason schedule, and what had already gotten underway last year begins on this Wednesday — Happy Birthday to me, I suppose. I will not be watching, I have celebrating to do. Enjoy your tacos!
