During every summer, Matt goes on a two week adventure in the middle of July with the maker of Aqua Fresh Toothpaste to research the effectiveness of air dryers in public restrooms. They have not made a distinct conclusion yet, but they found that the New York Jets are the worst franchise in NFL history. If you find evidence, please report it to your nearest Taco Bell, astray are funding Matt's research with Aqua Fresh
