Yankees 2  Baltimore 3 A fairly good game even though the Yanks were losing the entire game.Anyway, to the subway…
What I notice immediately is the number of “subway authorities.”. By that I mean guys in Yankees jerseys that attend aproximately two games a year thus earning them the title “lord of the subway directions.”
Their kingdom [...]

Today all my loyal SUBWAYblogger readers get a bonus post! [Waiting for the applause to stop]
I’m headed up to the Bronx to catch the Yanks vs Baltimore tonight. I am sure there will be plenty to discuss about those trips. So stay tuned for that. Unforunately, I will be going up there with a [...]

I have an early meeting this morning, so I am “in the system” (as if it were the matrix or something) earlier than normal. But there is something nice about the calm in the early morning.
