PETA: Philly Caters to Vegetarian Sports Fans

Praise from the animal-rights group.

Metro: “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has awarded the city with its first-ever Most Vegetarian-Friendly City for Sports Fans award.”

The group announced the honor the same time as once again calling Eagles’ stadium Lincoln Financial Field the most vegetarian-friendly in the NFL — the fourth time it received the title.

Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies play, is already at the top of their list of most vegetarian-friendly ballparks in the majors. And Wells Fargo comes in at three on PETA’s NBA survey.

There’s no truth to the rumor, however, that PETA nearly revoked the award because while the veggie food options are plentiful, the Flyers, Phillies, and 76ers have all been “dead meat.”*

*A month ago, we would’ve made that joke about the Eagles, too. For snarky journalists, there’s a downside to a team getting better.
