Study says Ravens fans most superstitious in NFL

Posted on 03 October 2013 by WNST Staff

Bud Light Puts the Focus on the Fan with NFL Superstition Survey
Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints Fans Rank as the Most Superstitious

To celebrate the 2013 NFL season and the fan rituals that are just as much a part of the game as blocking and tackling, Bud Light, the official beer sponsor of the National Football League, has released the results of its NFL Fan Superstition Survey. This survey, which gathered opinions from nearly 10,000 adult NFL fans over the summer, took an in-depth look at the fan bases of each of the 32 NFL teams and how their superstitions and rituals impact their enjoyment of the game. According to the survey, the top-5 most superstitious fan bases in the NFL are:

 

1.      Baltimore Ravens fans

2.      Arizona Cardinals fans

3.      New Orleans Saints fans

4.      Oakland Raiders fans

5.      Philadelphia Eagles fans

 

The survey also provided a glimpse inside the minds of NFL fans who will do whatever it takes for the win and revealed which fans are least likely to “take one for the team.” Among the results:

  • ·         Arizona Cardinals fans are the most likely to wear an unwashed jersey in order to support their team.
  • ·         New York Jets fans are the most likely to sit in the same lucky seat every game.
  • ·         Detroit Lions fans might be a bit secretive: they’re the most likely to engage in superstitious activities alone.
  • ·         More than any other fan base in the NFL, Buffalo Bills fans are most likely to set out some kind of team memorabilia and then touch, kiss, rub or hold it for the win.
  • ·         New Orleans Saints fans are most likely to engage in their superstitious activityevery single game.

Bud Light partnered with KRC Research to conduct the national, online quantitative survey with NFL fans ages 21 and older. More than 50 questions were asked and, out of that, an “NFL Fan Superstition Index” formed. The index calculates the superstition level of each NFL fan base by each fan’s game-day habits – everything from wearing dirty jerseys, chanting and kissing team trinkets to superstition consistency and true belief levels – and aggregates those into a score from 0 to 100.

Once again, WNST will be all over Charm City this week as we’re excited about a Baltimore Ravens season opener, a Baltimore Orioles playoff push and more.

It starts Tuesday night, as “The Reality Check”‘s Glenn Clark returns to Hooters Towson 7-8 for our next “Grab A Bud” Happy Hour presented by Budweiser. This is your last chance to win tickets to see Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”) Wednesday night at The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric.

On Wednesday night, it’s “The Morning Reaction”‘s Luke Jones’ turn to “Grab a Bud” with everyone, as he’ll be at Hooters Towson 7-8pm also courtesy of Budweiser. Luke will have plenty of giveaways as well, including tickets to see Kenny Loggins at The Lyric Sunday, September 15.

Thursday afternoon we’ll gear up for the Ravens’ season opener against the Denver Broncos with an awesome pre-game party at Noble’s in Federal Hill courtesy of Pinnacle Vodka. ESPN The Magazine’s Kevin Van Valkenburg will be stopping by to hang out as “The Reality Check” broadcasts live 2-6pm. We’ll have more giveaways and you’ll DEFINITELY want to try Nobles’ “Orange Crush Davis” ahead of the O’s/White Sox game that night or the Keith Urban concert at the Inner Harbor-wherever you’re headed.

Big week for charity, giveaways, Ravens shows, bus trips and Hooters girls at WNST!

Posted on 27 August 2013 by WNST Staff

It’s a jam packed week here at WNST, with more chances for you to hang out, mingle, win prizes and meet players than perhaps we’ve ever slammed into a single week before.

THURSDAY NIGHT:

Glenn Clark from “The Reality Check” continues his “Grab a Bud” happy hour series at Hooters in Towson courtesy of Budweiser. Glenn will be rooting the Orioles on against the Red Sox, showing some major support for Towson against UConn and keeping tabs on the Ravens as they visit the Rams. If you stop by Hooters, not only will there be Hooters girls, but you can take advantage of some of their brand new menu additions, including “The Southwestern.”

The WNST.net staff got a taste of this beauty last week. It’s glorious. Everyone who attends Thursday night will be registered to win tickets to see Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, who made a hilarious appearance on “The Reality Check” last week that’s worth listening to if you missed it) Sept. 4 or Kenny Loggins Sept. 15 at The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. Glenn will be giving away tickets on site, so anyone who stops by between 7pm and 8pm will be registered. There will be other great giveaways as well, and rumor has it there are girls at Hooters. Just a rumor.

FRIDAY NIGHT:

As the Grand Prix of Baltimore gets underway downtown (we encourage you to get your tickets now!), WNST has two incredible events lined up. First, we’ll kick off our 2013 Ravens player show series with Super Bowl XLVII champion left tackle Bryant McKinnie at Adams Jeep in Aberdeen. The show gets underway at 7pm. We’ve had a ton of fun with the man known as “Mt. McKinnie” over the years. Sometimes he even gets into song.

If you want pictures and autographs with Bryant Friday night, make sure you go right now to get your ticket. The autograph ticket will cost you just a $15 donation to Living Classrooms Foundation. (ALL proceeds go to the Living Classrooms Foundation.) Get your tickets now, there are a ton of rowdy Ravens fans in Harford County that will be out in full force.

Later Friday night, Glenn Clark and Nestor Aparicio will wander down Route 40 to Exscape Nightclub for a huge orange celebration. Between 8:30 and 10:30, we’ll be rooting on the Birds as they battle the Yankees with a FREE taco bar and $5 Orange Crush Machados. As if that wasn’t enough, every single person who stops by to see us between 8:30 and 10:30 will walk away with a very awesome “Crush Davis” t-shirt courtesy of The Zone Superstore. See a look at the back of the shirt below. Another rumor? There are also girls at Exscape Night Club.

SATURDAY:

Our tradition of taking Baltimore Orioles fans on the road continues, as our Orange Roadtrip to The Bronx to see the Birds battle the Yanks departs White Marsh at 7am. It’s a tremendous chance for you to root on the O’s in an ALDS rematch against a team they’re fighting with again this year for a postseason spot. The trip is just $119 per person and includes the ride up and back, ticket, beer/soda/breakfast/snacks. With an afternoon start, the bus should return at a very reasonable time.

Here’s trip down memory lane to our first ever trip to the new Yankee Stadium…

Keep all of this in mind as you prepare for your Labor Day weekend. It’s going to be a ton of fun throughout Charm City (and beyond) for the WNST crew. Look forward to seeing you around!
