Thanks Jacoby!

Jacoby Ellsbury, the rookie outfielder for the Boston Red Sox, has impressed and dazzled in the field and at the plate since he joined the team this year. And, truth be told, has set more than a few hearts beating faster!

Today, we all had free tacos from Taco Bell because Jacoby stole second base in Game Two of the World Series. Sure, there was a bit of defensive indifference on the part of the Colorado Rockies, but a steal’s a steal! As a result of Jacoby’s steal, Taco Bell delivered on their promise to offer a free taco to everyone in America. (To obtain the Free Taco, consumers must visit any participating Taco Bell® restaurant in one of the fifty (50) the United States or District of Columbia between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. (local time) on the Redemption Date only and request a Free Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco. Free Taco's will not be offered on any other date or time, regardless of circumstance. Limit one (1) Free Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco per person. 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. All eligible consumers: Everyone in line at a participating Taco Bell restaurant before 5:00 p.m. local time will receive a Free Taco, even if it is provided after 5:00 p.m. Free Taco offer is subject to store availability and Taco Bell reserves the right to substitute an item of equal or greater value if due to unavailability. All restaurant managers decisions are final regarding to Free Taco offer.) ;o)

So after we ate our free 79 cent tacos, we continued along on our own “Rolling Rally” and went to Bob’s Stores. There we acquired our 2007 Boston Red Sox World Series Championship T-shirts. Those were most decidedly not free! Below you can see Chuck in the Red Sox cap he’s worn faithfully all season. Note the “Go Sox” sign in the background. That will give you an idea of what life is like here in the heart of Red Sox Nation!

Thanks Rice!
Even though my grandfather played baseball back in the 19-teens and twenties, I didn't become a fan until well into adulthood. But when I fell, I fell hard!

Hi B2B -
It sure was a fun Series - at least for Red Sox fans! Sorry you missed out on your free Jacoby taco. The lines were crazy at Taco Bell, but it was fun!
