It's hard to think of anything more romantic than a squatting A.J. Pierzynski waiting to retrieve a pitch while a member of the Minnesota Twins digs into the batter's box. When you throw in an umpire spitting out a bit of tobacco juice and a shirtless guy behind home plate talking on his cell phone and gesticulating wildly to his cronies at Fitzpatrick's you have a direct route to any woman's heart. Taco Bell, well known plucker of heart strings themself, has figured that out and is offering one lucky baseball fan a chance to propose to their intended via the digital advertising screens behind homeplate during FOX's telecast of a game on July 7th.
Sports is all about the big moment, celebrating the love of the game and sharing some great food between friends. Now, to launch the all-new 7-Layer Crunchwrap®, Taco Bell will bring all three to life by giving one lucky sports fan the opportunity to pop the big question during a Major League Baseball game nationally televised on FOX on the luckiest day of the century: 7/7/07.
I stand corrected. There is something more romantic than the above scene. It still involves A.J. Pierzynski, though now he is the shirtless one, reclining on a dugout bench with a 7-Layer Crunchwrap dribbling down his chin. That Taco Bell chihuahua is licking the dribblings up as they pool at the top of his chest and he turns to the camera and says "Yo Quiero marry Hank, y tu?"
