Photos: No Pants Subway Ride Shows The CTA Its Best Cubs-Themed Underwear

The annual No Pants Subway Ride returned to Chicago Sunday afternoon to give Chicagoans an excuse to get some sun (and, presumably, CTA grime) on their cheeks in the dead of winter.

The event, which started out as an Improv Everywhere experiment and takes place in several cities, kicked off Sunday afternoon in Rogers Park, where participants rode the length of the Red Line sans pants. Participants were encouraged to keep their coats, boots, scarves, etc. on because, oh yes, it's January. Have a look at our photo gallery from the event, plus some very current Cubs-themed briefs.
