Pro
athletes don’t do anything halfway. So studly New York Jets safety Bret Lockett wasn’t content simply to
pose with a strategically placed faux-leather football for his PETA anti-fur campaign. Instead, he decided to
play spread offense and turn his ad unveiling into a whole weekend. First, he
helped PETA dedicate our Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters to longtime supporter
and Hollywood heavyweight Sam
Simon

Later
that evening, Bret hosted an unveiling party at Hampton Roads hotspot the
Granby Theater, greeted fans, and talked about why fur should be sidelined. “What
really hurt me was when I saw that an animal was still able to move and lift [his] head up
after he was completely skinned
,” he said. “It
brought tears to my eyes.”

And
the next night, he went with the PETA gang to laugh aloud as Bill Maher made fun of hunters and
other animal abusers in his stand-up performance. All weekend, wherever he
went, Bret dined on vegan food, sported PETA T-shirts, and enthusiastically discussed
animal rights issues with fans who approached him.

It’s
easy to see why No. 26 is No. 1 for animals.
