Rays Clinch Playoff -- Time To Pay Up
Sunday morning I'll be off and pedaling 100 miles to fulfill a pledge I made back in June, when most people thought the Tampa Bay Rays' winning ways were just a fun novelty. I vowed to bike 100 miles the day after the Rays clinched a playoff spot and visit as many Dunkin' Donuts as I could along the way. That's because a Rays'Dunkin' Donuts promotion allows anyone to walk into a Dunkin' store the day after a Rays win and get a free donut.
So I'll be hitting my first Dunkin' Donuts store at 6 AM Sunday, the one on Hillsborough Avenue near 34th Street.
One hundred miles later I'll be pulling into the Tropicana Field parking lot Sunday afternoon to celebrate the Rays' miracle season so far.
