We must take our hats off to the incredibly reasonable shirtless young man in the video below, who was hauling around his giant sousaphone during yesterday's disgustingly humid sub-tropical heatgasm. Mike H. missed two trains just to watch as the sousaphonist labored to get onto a packed subway. But to his credit, he ultimately backed down instead of trying to cram his giant brass instrument onboard. So by showing some restraint under desperate, sweaty circumstances, this shirtless man gets our Gothamist Good Straphanger Award for the week.
