Home Run Could Mean Free Tacos
2 hours, 18 minutes ago

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Barry Bonds could end up feeding the nation during this World Series.


Taco Bell is promising free tacos for the entire country if Bonds, or any other player, hits a target floating in a cove behind the right-field fence at Pacific Bell Park.


The 15-foot diameter target will remain in place through Game 5. Any home run that touches it during the three games scheduled at the park entitles everyone in the United States to a free taco coupon.


The company says it would pick a window of time on one day when people can redeem the coupons.


Of the 27 home runs to land in McCovey Cove since the park opened, Bonds has hit 21 of them for the San Francisco Giants. His team faces the Anaheim Angels on Tuesday in Game 3.


Taco Bell sponsored a similar promotion last year, offering free tacos to the country if the Mir space station (news - web sites) hit the company's 40-foot-by-40-foot target in the South Pacific.


Mir finished the day 0-1.

Shouldn't there be like a Rice A Roni target instead, since that's the San Francisco treat?

You KNOW there would be mile long lines for a .59 taco. Yup, waiting 3 hours in line to get a yucky .59 taco is worth it.

You certainly may, as long as you fight the 280,000,000 people on that day for a place in line. I'm willing to spend the 79 cents in order to not stand in line.

You are absolutely right. Free food, no matter how bad it is, has an amazing effect on people in this country.

During the game last night, I think I heard them saying that it would be from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM local time, on Monday, November 4th.

I haven't had to wait in line for 3 hours when Baskin Robbins does their Free Scoop nights. They usually have a nice flowing line. Not only can free tacos not compete with free ice cream, there are more Taco Bell locations here than Baskin Robbins.
