This is how you can score free Doritos Locos Tacos from Taco Bell this November

While I don't mind a bit of competitive sport every once in a while, man, is it super boring to watch sports on television. Whether you're talking about the World Cup Final or the Super Bowl or the 400m Freestyle at the Olympics, I love the idea of watching sporting history unfold, but in practice, I'd rather watch anything else.

"Oooh, look, it's Michael Phelps, splashing around in a swimming pool, strategically flailing his way to... gold, once again," I might shout, that pause in the middle denoting when I have most likely fallen asleep. Look, sporting achievements are really great, but... don't make me watch cricket on TV again. Please.

I'm sure I've offended pretty much all sports fans by now, so I'm going to go ahead and double down. Baseball comes under the same boring umbrella - even more so, in my opinion. But, Taco Bell have found a way to make watching sports a little less boring with their latest promotions for Doritos Locos Tacos - where you can get 'em for free.

Interested? Course you are. Let's dive right in, shall we?

Okay, now how many of you are familiar with the concept of stealing a base in the game of baseball? The Steal A Base, Steal a Taco scheme at Taco Bell has been running for a number of years, and it's pretty simple to understand; whenever a baseball player steals a base during the World Series, you get a free Doritos Locos Taco.

A Doritos Locos Taco, you ask? What, you've never had a Doritos Locos Taco? I mean, if you love tacos and Doritos, you really should: it's a taco with Doritos making up the shell. That sounds awesome, doesn't it? And although the World Series ended earlier this week with the Boston Red Sox beating the LA Dodgers to take home the title, you can keep the spirit of baseball alive by eating some free tacos, come November 1. So... today!

Between the hours of two and six o'clock this afternoon, you can head to any Taco Bell around the country for your fix of tacos - and because Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts stole a base in the World Series - it's free tacos for all for those four hours! Plus, if you're registered on the Taco Bell app or on their website, then you can even redeem that taco online! Technology is pretty great, isn't it?

Funnily enough, this is actually the fourth year in a row that a base has been stolen in the World Series - so the fourth year running that America has scored free tacos from Taco Bell. Last year, it was Cameron Maybin who stole a base in the 11th inning of the second game of the series.

So today, as you head to Taco Bell to enjoy your free tacos, be sure to thank Mookie Betts for effectively paying for your dinner.
