The TV networks have been notably, um, unenthusiastic about running
PETA’s Super Bowl ads, so this year PETA is planning
to take its message directly to the players and fans by placing billboards in the
teams’ hometowns of New York and Boston as well as Indianapolis, which is
hosting the game, making an irreverent plea for people to put down the chicken
wings on Super Bowl Sunday.

a lack of imagination. After all, there are so many mouth-watering alternatives
to the old same-old same-old. For vegan game-day treats that will satisfy the
most ravenous sports fan, check
