A warm, soft flour tortilla filled with six succulent shrimp marinated in a mix of spices, then topped with crisp shredded lettuce, Fiesta Salsa, and Avocado Ranch Sauce. Pardon me while I hurl.
That's right; a shrimp taco. Not just any shrimp taco, a Taco Bell shrimp taco. I don't know when it began, but apparently in America you can now buy of of these at your local Taco Bell. Who in the Taco Bell hierarchy thought this was a good idea? Someone moron who has never eaten at Taco Bell, that's who.
While I love Taco Bell's food, it does not love me back if you catch my drift. Now they decide to throw seafood into the mix. Bad idea. I've had bad shellfish before. Believe me, it's not something you want to go through in life. Nothing but 3 of the worst days of my life. That is why I'll be avoiding Taco Bell's new shrimp taco like a cute blond avoids a 300 pound basement dwelling vlogger. Nothing good can come from the shrimp taco.
However lots of good came from last night's game. Luca Caputi scored his first of what I hope is many goals for the Leafs. And in front of 40 family and friends no less. Not a bad way to do it at all. Nikolai Kulemin showed why he's all but guaranteed a spot on the team for the next 3 to 4 with great hustle and poise on the game winner. And Mickey Grabs seems to have returned from his wrist injury without missing a beat as he played some good hockey.
All in all, a great game for the baby buds.
