Rockets' Animal Rights-Backing Owner to Sell Meat in New Arena

Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander is a vegetarian, animal rights advocate, and a businessman. Alexander is expected to sell plenty of meat when he gains control of concession stands at the city's new arena next year. Alexander says, in this particular case, he has no choice. Alexander says that a meatless U.S. sports arena would be financially "unreasonable."

Alexander receives no money from concessions at the Rockets' current home the Compaq Center, but Alexander will oversee food and drink sales at the new place. The Harris County-Houston Sports Authority has sold $256 million in bonds to build the new arena near the George R. Brown Convention Center. Alexander says that he'll make meat-free foods and other non-traditional arena items available alongside standbys like hot dogs.
