Boston’s Ballsiest T Riders

Whenever I have a particularly squished morning commute on the T, I make it a point to check in with the blog “Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train” for a good laugh.  Now, not all men are guilty of these public transit infractions – letting their legs pervade adjoining seats, blatantly sitting astride two spots, putting their feet up or leaving bags on empty seats.  But I think most subway-taking ladies like myself notice that many of these perpetrators tend to be male.  And there are plenty of Boston-based photos here to serve as evidence.

The blog also posts rants from male readers who justify the biological need to take up space, the greatest hits of which have been compiled into the epic “Men Defending Their Balls: A Super Poem”.

Now, I’m normally not for posting photos of strangers online without permission, but given these riders’ liberal use of space on trains, I think this blog is taking an appropriate amount of leverage themselves.

So for your viewing pleasure, the Best of Boston from “Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train”:
