Here we go... a base was stolen and now we get free tacos at Taco Bell today.

Everyone in America gets free tacos from Taco Bell today, October 30, thanks to baseball. As expected, the Chalupa-slinging fast food chain's annual "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" free food giveaway was triggered by the first stolen base of the 2019 World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. We repeat: Free tacos at Taco Bell. For everyone. Today.

How's that for awesome-sauce?

Here's what you need to do in order to receive your free taco:

To get your free taco, simply go to Taco Bell and request the freebie on October 30 any time between the hours of 2pm and 6pm (local time) while supplies last.

And even better... you don't actually have to go there right away.  There is a neat little trick:

...if you order your free Doritos Locos Taco through the Taco Bell mobile app, you don't have to abide by the time limitations; you can get it any time throughout the day for pickup (no additional fee) or delivery (for an additional fee). Either way, just extend your hand, grasp your free taco, maybe squirt some Fire Sauce on it, and eat it. No exchange of currency required.

So, even though the Twins didn't make it this year, and we were all hoping this would be the year...we still get free tacos!
