MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

April 1 has meant one thing to me for more than 25 years – the chance to publish something goofy and silly, but still with a little bite. I've been fortunate to be employed by a company that has let me do an April Fools edition every year (sometimes by the skin of my teeth).

This year will be no different, except this marks the 25th (or 26th) edition. So I'm going to take an extended look back that may take me all the way into April.

In the headlines (last) week:

Construction on housing finally scheduled to get underway near CitiField

MetroCard upgrade delayed because it was scheduled for Super Bowl weekend

Trump will probably refuse to release Democratic memo and blame the FBI

Plastic bag tax is underway on Long Island but not state-wide

Did you know there are five public toilets in New York City, and that it took 25 years to open them?

Has it been 300 podcasts already?
This week, I play the very first episode I ever recorded (sorry for low quality) and then come back with some thoughts on the past six years.

I've become a fan of many sports and many teams, but it's taken a great deal of time.

For some sports, much more time than others.

I was never a big "play sports" guy.

Did some running, played badminton (yes) and tennis.

Some of my "play sports" stories this week.

The MTA has unleashed its "Summer of Hell" for commuters, specifically those who take the LIRR.

This gives me an opportunity to clear out a bunch of MTA-related articles I've been meaning to discuss on the podcast.

The day after I purchased a new car (discussed last podcast) but the day BEFORE I picked up that same car, I experienced a very long day.
