We’re Number 2!

Bay Area sports stadiums claimed second-place spots for their vegetarian-friendliness with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals this year. This is rather surprising. We’d have thought the area could snag at least one first-place win. But we’ll try not to be that parent who’s super disappointed in your A-. Good job, Bay Area.

Yesterday, Eye On Blogs directed us to a Dec. 1 post on PETA’s blog, naming McAfee Stadium (that’s Oakland Coliseum for those who still have a soul) the second most vegetarian-friendly in the NFL. Previously, the group had named AT&T; park at no. 2 in major league baseball.

First place spots went to the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium in the NFL and the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park for baseball. This had everything to do with that stadium offering mock versions of Philadelphia’s many meaty classics. Vegetarian cheesesteak anyone?
