Free Taco Bell, Courtesy of an Angel
October 30, 2012
Before the World Series, Taco Bell issued the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants a challenge: if a player on either team could steal a base, the fast food giant would give out free Doritos Locos Tacos to everyone.
Giants’ outfielder Angel Pagan stole a base in Game 2, meaning that Tuesday October 30, from 2-6 PM, everyone who showed up received one free taco.
This caused severe backups at Taco Bells all over the Bay Area. However, the restaurant on El Camino Real in Redwood City received extra attention, and police assistance, as Pagan himself helped hand out tacos.
