Last night, while watching the Red Sox eviscerate the Rockies, I developed a few more pieces of my campaign platform:
- The original, Tacos at Fenway; featuring Tacoby Shellsbury
- During the postseason, when the Red Sox are playing away, fans can get into Fenway on the cheap and watch the game on the big screen, surrounded by other fans.
- Cleat Babes. I saw some old dude brushing the dirt out of Beckett’s cleats while he was waiting to pitch again. Get rid of the old dude, replace him with a hotchick.
My coworker Alex whipped up a Tacoby Shellsbury shirt for the campaign. I have no idea if he’s making any money off this or not, nor do I care. =)
I’m planning on running for President of Red Sox Nation next year (Update: Or not.. What is the term of RSN President, anyway?), and my platform is a simple one: Tacos at Fenway Park. Think about it, how awesome would it be to yell out "HEY TACO GUY" and have a few hard shells tossed your way? To me, it sounds like heaven. It would complete the Fenway experience.. In preparation for my run, I’ve held a few TACOSOX events at my house, where we make lots of tacos and watch the Red Sox. It has been a major hit!
Further validating my theory that Fenway is severly taco-deprived: Lowell and Pedroia brought tacos to fans camping out for tickets.
Oh, and my campaign mascot? An Anthropomorphised taco named "Tacoby Shellsbury". That is all.
