    Just sent this email out to our email list. In case any of you are interested and not on it:

    Based off the success of our first bus trip to Washington, DC last
    October, we are exploring the option of running another bus trip this
    year to Washington, DC for the Weds, 10/14/2009 World Cup Qualifier vs
    Costa Rica. This game could mean the difference between going to the
    World Cup and watching it from home.

    Since this is a midweek game, we want to get an approximate number of
    people interested so we know whether or not to go ahead with the trip.

    For those of you who went last year and even those who did not, here
    are pictures and our match report to remind you of what a good time we
    all had:

    Return of the NJB Goes to Washington (10/11/08)

    The price of the bus is looking to be the same as last time $85, which
    will also include a ticket in the US Supporters Section ($45 value).
    Chef Leon will be on hand to prepare the tailgate and will we feast on
    Tacos before we feast on the Ticos. **If the bus is sold out,
    everyone will be able to partake in the tailgate for free. Otherwise,
    there will be a $5 fee to enjoy the good eats.

    We will be showing the classic 97 WCQ vs Costa Rica in Portland,
    Oregon on the way down and will be showing 'Miracle Match' (the movie
    of the 1950 USA World Cup Team) on the way home. We will also have
    some prizes, including a 1990 US replica jersey and a 50/50 raffle the
    way down.

    If you know you are 100% going no matter what, please reply to this
    email letting us know that you are "IN".

    If you are not 100% sure but are interested in going, please reply to
    this email with a "MAYBE".

    If you know you are going to take the bus but already have a ticket,
    please reply to this email with "BUS ONLY".

    If you know you are going to the game but not taking the bus but want
    to get tickets with our group, please reply with "TICKET ONLY".

    If you can't make the trip at all but would like to donate a prize or
    some funds to the cause, please let us know.

    Based off these replies we will determine whether or not to do the bus
    trip. US Soccer is giving us until Friday to order tickets so please
    reply by Wednesday if you can.

    Here is the complete itinerary for the trip:

    Depart Manhattan- 31st and 8th
    11:30AM
    Depart Metropark Station - 100 Middlesex Turnpike, Iselin NJ
    12:00PM
    Arrive RFK Stadium
    5:00 PM
    Costa Rica vs USA
    8:00 PM

    10:30 PM
    Arrive Metropark Station

    Can Boston residents take this bus? We'll probably be out of the playoffs by then and all you Yankee fans can laugh at us. :D

    please be warned, there might be some mets fans on the bus too, so an accident or injuries are most likely to occur
