PETA praises the Linc

    PETA has named the Lincoln Financial Field the the most vegetarian-friendly stadium in the NFL.

    “Eagles fans have their choice of many meat-free options, including mock-steak and faux-chicken sandwiches, Gardenburgers, veggie dogs, and spicy black-bean burgers,” a spokesperson said in a release. “The stadium’s premium dining areas offer roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips, veggie wraps, locally farmed vegetable platters, and fresh fruit.”

    The Linc is to receive a framed certificate and letter of congratulations from the animal rights group.

    If that wasn’t enough to make you animal lovers proud, get this:

    According to, Philadelphia International Airport is one of the country’s top 10 pet friendly airports. Apparently, we’ve got seven ‘pet relief’ areas – designated spaces for bathroom breaks, water, and leg-stretching for your furry friends.

    It’s a dog’s life.
