Baseball & Free Taco Bell Tacos

Not sure if this belongs here or on the media board, but I just read that taco bell will be giving free tacos away. It's tied to steeling bases... Here's the article.

    For what it's worth Michelle, The Arizona Diamondbacks made a deal with TB that when the Snakes score six or more runs (win or lose), drop by Taco Bell (the next day, between 4pm and 6pm), order a large drink and get three tacos (not Supreme) for free.

    I have no idea if any other MLB team has the same agreement with TB but wouldn't be surprised.

      In Detroit, it's Arbys: if the Tigers (GO TIGERS) hit 3 or more home runs in a game, you can get a free roast beef sandwich the next day if you bring in a box score. No purchase necessary but how could you pass up a Jamocha shake??

      But I'm always reminded of the Simpsons line--"I'm so hungry I could eat at Arbys".

        Or alternately if a Red Wings player scores a hat trick.

        It was kind of funny on the hockey's future boards this winter. A couple of Detroit fans were complaining about how no Wing had managed to get a hat trick in the regular season. Disbelief was expressed from hockey fans outside of Detroit because the Wings have a potent offense. The response from the Wings fas was" Dude, we've been waiting all winter long for our free roast beef sandwich and never got one. If we had gotten one, we'd remember the hat trick."

          At least the Tigers have had a few 3 homerun games!

        The Angels have two deals. 10 strikeouts get you 20% off at California Pizza Kitchen. If they score 10 or more runs, each ticket stub gets you an order of wings at Claim Jumper.

          10 RUNS? How often has that happened?

          Arby's has given away more than a few sandwiches for the 3-homer games here.

            It's happened 12 times so far this year.

            The Angels also have a deal with Del Taco - if you're a member of the Del Taco fan club and if anyone from the Angels hits a home run in the 2nd inning, you get a coupon for a free taco emailed to you.
