I don’t know what it is.  Maybe god id punishing me for talking about fat people on SUBWAYblogger.
Lord knows the haters start bashing away in the comments every time I bring up the subject.
So before I get into the point of this post, let me say a few things for the record

No, I don’t [...]

There’s a new geeky duo that claim the title of being the fastest to ride the entire New York City Subway system.  Back in December of 2006, some guys broke the old record by an hour.
The new record holders claim to have beaten the record by a couple of hours.  How did they do it? [...]

It’s been a busy few days for SUBWAYblogger.  Thankfully, I can refocus here now and stop neglecting the site!

Welcome to Monday boys and girls.  Get back to work!

Over the next month, Dunkin’ Donuts is making the morning commute a little brighter for New Yorkers by providing free subway rides at four of Manhattan’s busiest subway stations. The giveaway is a component of Dunkin’s newly launched “You Kin Do It!” campaign to encourage everyday workers to keep [...]

I witnessed a funny encounter today on the subway.
