In other news, Ozzie Guillen screams several slurs at PETA members.

/got nothin

Great!

I us cubs fans have a reason to call them 'fags' now...

This is just another marketing attempt to get people from the north down to the 'asshole' of Chicago to attend their games.


Loyal Cubs fans can't be bought.

I never liked PETA, never have and never will. However their new campaign of buying stock in food companies to influence them for more humane slaughtering methods sits right with me. Buying stock and giving presentations to the investors to try and influence them is a very civil method of getting what you want. Not like PETA at all.

I'm impressed whenever I go to a public venue and there are vegetarian options. It shows a level of enlightenment and social consciousness.

Plus, most baseball fans need to eat healthier anyway. Fat sobs.

I like the Vegan meals at the arena... of course they are always better with a side of Tasty animal meat.

\\Not a vegan,
///Never been to a Pro game (of any kind)
////Always orders the "BIG" cut of meat

That's strange...I wouldn't think that the neanderthals that populate that stadium would be interested in vegetarian foods.
 
2006-07-13 12:16:19 PM
so uhhh, when is the US going to declare war on PETA? they are technically a terrorist organization.


/and that's a war I would fully support.

War on PETA?

How many battalions of Marines do we need to beat their army of naked painted protestors?

Also, I hate the word "nosh" And how is corn on the cob not vegetarian?

I think the Cubs collapsed this year by mid-April.
 
2006-07-13 12:23:47 PM
So PETA members will not be at Wrigley Field?

Score one for the Cubbies.

FeeltheIllinoise: Woooo! White Sox on their way to the World Series!

As a Cubs fan, I hope so. The Cubs are doing so horribly this year, I was actually a little ticked that they beat the Sox a few weeks ago. I was yelling at the screen, "Don't drag them down with us!"

I guess I need to report to the nearest Cubs Fan Re-Education Center. I hear they're not too mean to you if you willingly turn yourself in.

While hunting in G. W. Forest, I had two PETA morans chain themselves to the base of the tree in which I was perched.

They had great fun. Making noise, listening to a radio. Talking to me and wanting to know why I wanted to kill Bambi and eat her charred flesh. I sat quietly and smiled while I slowly sipped every ounce of coffee in my thermos.

Every hunter among you knows where I'm headed with this.

Climbing down a tree whilst having a full bladder is not pleasureable experience. If you wait long enough, it's virtually impossible.

I asked them to walk away so I could relieve myself. They ignored me.....just a little too long....

"I'm impressed whenever I go to a public venue and there are vegetarian options. It shows a level of enlightenment and social consciousness. Plus, most baseball fans need to eat healthier anyway. Fat sobs."

And this is reason why most sane people hate sanctimonious loudmouth asshat vegetarians.

/I am not saying all vegetarians are sanctimonious loudmouth asshats, far from it.

I think if ballparks sold roasted corn on the cob, then everybody would buy it, vegetarians & barbecue enthusiasts (aka the rest of us) alike. You can smother it in butter or lime juice for the non-butter crowd, now thats some goooood one-handed eaten.

Roasted corn! The great unifier! Who's with me?!

When the Red Sox played them at "The Cell" I had a lot of fun playing "Spot the thin guy at the Chicago ballpark". There weren't many, that's for sure. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

So peanuts, popcorn and beer aren't good enough for vegetarians? That's what everyone else eats.

Try ordering pizza for 15 people, 3 of whom are vegetarian. So you order, 1 cheese (cause everyone can eat it), 1 veggie (to satisfy the veggies), and 1 meat (any combination). You know what is eaten first and what the meat eaters go for? The veggie pizza. You know what's left over - the meat pizza. It really sucks if you are a veggie. You don't want to take too many slices and look like a pig, but if you don't get what you want at the outset, all that is left is the meat for seconds. Ick.

Eating meat makes Jolly Green Giant MAD!

If nobody's eating the meat pizza, why not just order two veggie pizzas? Just because someone eats meat doesn't mean they HAVE to eat meat.

Or maybe it just shows that they have lowered themselves to pandering to every whiny, PC asshat who complains about everything.

They are trying to sell edamame at Reds games now. Edamame! Yeah, I eat healthy at home.... yeah, I have even snacked on edamame.... but at the ball game, gimme a friggin hot dog, pretzel, some nachos, and a big-ass beer. I'm not there to be healthy!

/Of course, that order would cost about $20. Stupid ballpark prices....
//there's plenty of vegetarian options at most ballparks - nachos, pretzels, ice cream, popcorn, peanuts, Crackerjacks, etc....

These lists (despite Dan Shannon's inane commentary) are one of the few things PETA does right.

And realistically speaking, if it wasn't PETA writing up the list, more pro teams/stadiums might want to carry vegetarian options at their games. It's not particularly difficult. You'd be selling concessions to an underutilized marketing segment, and might even bring more people out to the games.

Sign an exclusive agreement with Boca or Morningstar. Make it clear you're using their products. It gains more exposure for the companies, and may cause people to buy their products from the supermarkets. Good profits, low risk.

And no, PETA is not a terrorist organization. It's a cult. There's a difference. They take idealistic kids and make 'em drink the kool-aid. They're not the ALF.

/he's back... in pog form!
