    Annual pantsless subway ride commences at 3 p.m.There are a lot of things you could do with a Sunday. Recover from a wild Saturday night, enjoy the weather, catch up on housework or ride the subway without pants.Got your attention? Good, that way you won’t be caught off-guard this afternoon when Philadelphians pack the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines without their pants for the “No pants subway ride.”
    Taking a cue from New York City, the annual ride has a detailed set of instructions that center around two-hour mass transit trip sans pants.It might be a bit chilly to spend the afternoon in your underwear, but if this was a summer event, how would we be able to tell who’s participating and who’s just trying to stay cool?
