All aboard New Year’s Day Caps Puck Bus to NHL Winter Classic in D.C.

Posted on 09 December 2014 by WNST Trips

We’re trying to get more aggressive and do even more WNST Baltimore “Rocks The Red” buses down to D.C. than usual this season but can only do these trips based on demand. If you love the Caps and don’t like the drive before and after games, our trips have an eight-year track record of being easy, fun and affordable. We appreciate you supporting all that we’re doing to grow the hockey community in Baltimore. If you know of other Capitals/Skipjacks/Clippers/Bandits hockey fans in Baltimore, please help us spread the word and fill some buses with Baltimore “Rock The Red” fans.

All aboard another WNST Rocks The Red Puck Bus to D.C. as the Washington Capitals take on the Chicago Blackhawks in the fabled NHL Winter Classic at Nationals Park at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2015. Our Gunther Motorcoach will depart from the White Marsh Mall at 9 a.m. with a pickup from Catonsville/UMBC I-95 Park N Ride (at Rt. 166) at 9:30 a.m. All tickets are lower level in the stadium and include a limited supply of cold beer (for those 21-and-over) en route and snacks, soft drinks and fun videos and giveaways.

We will be able to accommodate larger groups upon request and always keep groups together.

We hope you join us for a day of hockey and fun aboard the WNST Rocks The Red Puck Bus to D.C. Families are welcomed and encouraged to join us!

It’s a great night out!

Your PayPal receipt is your ticket and we always throw you an email 48 hours before the game to confirm everything. All you need to do is purchase and we’ll see you at the bus. We bring the game tickets with us. Nice and easy!

If you have any questions, throw me a note: nasty@wnst.net

COST: $275 per person

Tomlin Aftermath Getting Carried Away

Tomlin Aftermath Getting Carried Away

Posted on 02 December 2013 by Thyrl Nelson

 

I get that as a Ravens fan I’m supposed to hate all things Pittsburgh. I get that I’m supposed to see the black and yellow as something sinister, and that I am supposed to celebrate any hardship that should fall the Steelers way. That said, the talk of Steelers coach Mike Tomlin as a diabolical genius whose actions should merit a suspension or loss of draft picks is kind of lost on me.

 

Maybe it’s because the Ravens won the game, but I have a hard time feeling like what happened between Mike Tomlin and Jacoby Jones on Thursday night is anything more than a humorous aside and an interesting chapter in what was otherwise a classic renewal of the NFL’s best rivalry.

Yes Tomlin deserves to be punished…and certainly he will be. But this isn’t Spy-gate or Bounty-gate or any other gate for that matter. At worst – at absolute worst – it was an ill-conceived, spur of the moment reaction worthy of punishment. At best (and more likely in my opinion) it’s a strange, unusual, and rather fortunate happenstance for the Steelers, still worthy of punishment, in a game that they ultimately lost anyway.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions on what they saw on Thursday, but if this was the diabolical scheme that many have made it out to be, Tomlin is as prescient and calculated as his team was out of sorts and bumbling on that play. It’s impossible for me to believe that Tomlin intentionally turned his back to the field for when (or if just in case) his team let Jones slip past their kick coverage, yet somehow funneled him precisely to the coach’s location. It’s impossible to fathom, in real time, that Tomlin spotted a spontaneous opportunity unfolding right behind him and cooked up a scheme, not to stop or run into Jones, but to slow him up just enough to be caught by the tackler in pursuit. It sure looks dubious in slow motion, but the play didn’t happen in slow motion, it happened in the blink of an eye.

Intent should have no bearing on punishment, and there will be punishment. But suspensions and losses of draft picks have been reserved for those teams and coaches that intentionally and premeditatedly tried to cheat the system. They have also been levied in cases where there was no precedent, or specific line of punishment prescribed beforehand. What happened on Thursday was neither of those things.

While there may be no better (or more effective) example of interference coming from the sideline in an NFL game, there have been similar incidents; and there are rules to govern these incidents. As Ravens fans we all learned these rules when Joe Flacco made the suggestion during the Super Bowl that if Ted Ginn were to break free on the game’s final kickoff that someone come off the sideline and make the tackle. In such situations, an official can award the touchdown if he feels it’s merited.

Whether or not Jones could have scored if not for Tomlin’s interference isn’t even clear in this situation, but should have been left up to the discretion of the officials. Of course in order to make such a decision, an official would have actually had to throw a flag, and on Thursday none did. That’s the bigger problem as far as the NFL is concerned, that an official was in position not only to make the call, but to have to make the call (Tomlin at one point was directly between Jones and the official) and he didn’t.

Unless the NFL somehow comes up with evidence that Tomlin masterminded the whole thing, either before the play or while the play was in progress, it’s impossible to say definitively what the coach was thinking, or whether or not Jones would have scored anyway. Many have claimed to “know” the answers to those questions, but they’re simply guessing, they can’t know for sure. So a fine is in order and forthcoming, and the greatest rivalry in the NFL has another strange and sordid chapter.

WNST Super Trip to The Big Game in New Orleans NOW ON SALE HERE!

Posted on 20 January 2013 by WNST Trips

WNST.net presents what you’ve been waiting 12 long years for in the Charm City – a real Festivus trip to New Orleans for a Super celebration and party for all Baltimore Ravens fans.

If you’ve searched for hotels anywhere in or near The Big Easy, you know that rooms are impossible to find and flights are equally non-existent. As always, we’ve got you covered for this once-in-a-generation trip to The Big Game with our Gunther Motorcoach charter and we’ll make this whole experience easy, fun, comfortable and affordable.

Prices will fluctuate due to the volatility of the marketplace for Super Bowl tickets so please act decisively!

WNST.net  has driven and led more than 15,000 folks to Ravens away games and have logged more than 250,000 miles since 1996 and we always have as much fun as our guests. Families and children are always welcome on our trips and these are designed to be very easy. You board the bus and we take care of the rest! No driving, parking, hassles. We always say the bus is better than a limo because it has headroom, legroom and a bathroom!

PLEASE READ ALL ELEMENTS OF THIS LENGTHY POST BEFORE PURCHASING AT THE BOTTOM OR EMAILING US!!!

If you buy a full V.I.P. package from us, your game ticket will be REAL and you will be going to The Big Game in New Orleans. All of our current pricing is for upper deck endzone tickets. We will not be able to provide specific seat locations for your package until Thursday, Jan. 31st when our buses depart White Marsh Mall. You will be given your game ticket when you board the bus.

Please read all of this carefully and we hope you make the right choice in joining us for every minute of fun, football, family, friends and great memories as we travel south to the Gulf Coast to enjoy the magic of what the Baltimore Ravens mean to our community.

Our buses will leave at 5 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31 and we expect to stop for three meals during the day and arrive in the Gulf Coast area around midnight. (And, yes, a lot of movies will be viewed!)

We have secured several hotels near the Gulfport Airport in Mississippi, which is about an hour from The French Quarter. It’s all highway and will make it easy to shuttle Baltimore fans in and out of the city twice per day on Friday and Saturday and one trip on Sunday for the game.

In addition, the Gulf Coast has great casinos and free transportation from all of our hotels if you’re not up for going into New Orleans on Friday and/or Saturday.

Here is our shuttle schedule from Gulf Coast hotels for the weekend in New Orleans. We will depart from Best Western Gulfport Airport. Please be prompt. The buses will not wait or headcount:

 

Friday, Feb. 1st

11 a.m. departure to NOLA w/Noon drop

5 p.m. to NOLA w/6 p.m. return to Gulfport/Bay St. Louis

Midnight return to your Gulf Coast hotel

 

Saturday, Feb. 2nd
11 a.m. departure to NOLA w/Noon drop at Toulouse at The River

5 p.m. to NOLA w/6 p.m. return to Gulfport/Bay St. Louis

10 p.m. return to your Gulf Coast hotel (early bus)

1 a.m. return to your Gulf Coast hotel (final run of night)

 

Sunday, Feb. 3rd
10 a.m. w/11 a.m. drop in New Orleans at Toulouse at The River

1 a.m. return to your Gulf Coast hotel from New Orleans

 

Monday, Feb. 4th
8 a.m. departure from Gulf Coast to Baltimore returning after midnight

WNST.net will not guarantee tickets in any groups other than pairs. If you order odd numbers of any kind you are subject to being split up at the game as most of the 90,000 seats in the Superdome are issued in sets of two. If you are adamant about special seating – odd groups, large groups or lower bowl premium seating – please inquire. Pricing and availability varies literally hour-to-hour but we’ll try to assist you to make your experience as desired.

All of our seats are guaranteed tickets in the upper deck end zone areas.

Our two hotel locations and multiple offerings are close enough to New Orleans to make this trip comfortable. Bay St. Louis is 53 miles from the French Quarter. Our Gulfport airport hotels are 72 miles from the French Quarter. It’s about an hour drive and you can enjoy refreshments on the ride into The Big Easy.

We are offering rental car assistance via Enterprise Rental Car so if you desire your own transportation upon arrival in the Gulf Coast area, the office is very close they can assist you. Keep in mind that traffic, parking and getting in and out of New Orleans will be extremely challenging on Saturday and Sunday so we highly recommend using our shuttle and being prompt.

Here’s what’s included in WNST.net VIP Big Game/Big Easy Package:

•    Full roundtrip transportation via Gunther Motorcoach from White Marsh to your Gulf Coast hotel of choice on Thursday, Jan. 31st
•    All transfers on our daily shuttles to/from New Orleans on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. (Twice-daily ride of about an hour)
•    One V.I.P. WNST Party admission for our TBA grand event in New Orleans
•    End zone game tickets (only guaranteed in pairs!)
•    Hotel of your choice plus all usual included perks these establishments offer – internet, free breakfast, local shuttles, etc.
•    Ice cold beer, soft drinks & water en route to The Gulf Coast

You can also purchase our travel package WITHOUT a game ticket as well and you will receive all of the above minus the Big Game ticket.

We are working on other combo packages such as “hotel only” and “ticket and hotel only” for those who have other transportation or travel arrangements. We’ll have these together soon. If you have a specific interest in these two packages, please email: nasty@wnst.net with detailed information and we’ll return your emails as soon as humanly possible.

WNST will NOT be selling “tickets only” for The Big Game.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!! We cannot offer refunds of any kind for any reason!!! You may resell your trip but we cannot offer name changes after Tuesday, Jan. 29th.

Once you buy a package you have locked your price. Prices are subject to change at any time due to the volatility of the ticket and hotel marketplace.

Due to hotels being overwhelmed, we ask that you request your hotel rooming situation on the checkout form. Given the volume & limited availability for rooms, we cannot guarantee this request at all locations but will do our best along with our hotel partners to honor your needs for your traveling party.

As you can see there are a variety of packages for different budgets and locations. Please choose carefully.

We’d love to have you on this legendary trip to The Big Easy for The Big Game as the purple moves to the New Orleans to win another championship.

ONE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING PAYMENT OPTIONS FOR THIS TRIP:

We use PayPal at WNST.net and due to fraud issues and government regulations, we cannot accept payments larger than $10,000 via PayPal with credit cards. So, if you are purchasing triples or quads please purchase individually to equal the total amount so that your payment is received in full in two transactions.

OR, you can bring a check to WNST at 1550 Hart Road, Towson, MD 21286 anytime after 9am on Monday, Jan. 21. We will have full forms at our office to accept check payments. We realize this is a big transaction and we want to make payment easy but with online frauds and huge transactions this isn’t as easy as we had hoped. The earlier your check clears the sooner you are officially on the trip.

But we still have space for you and if you act on Monday morning we can promise that you won’t get locked out of our trip.

If you have any questions, email: nasty@wnst.net. We expect to be slammed with emails so act quickly and avoid SOLD OUT status on these properties and trips…
