This Saturday could be the day that the Republicans really feel the outrage of the public
Air Force-Navy, Army-BC in limbo

WASHINGTON -- Army, Navy and Air Force might be forced to skip their football games next weekend because of the budget impasse in Congress.

The Defense Department temporarily suspended sports competition at the service academies Tuesday as a result of the partial government shutdown.

A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said the decision was being reviewed by lawyers to determine whether the funds used for such activities are congressionally appropriated.

he U.S. Naval Academy said in a statement that a decision will be made by noon Thursday about whether the Midshipmen will play the Air Force. Navy's football team did practice Tuesday.

Air Force associate athletic director Troy Garnhart said travel for his sports teams was being halted -- including for Saturday's football game at Annapolis, Md. A scheduled news conference with Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun and players was canceled Tuesday "due to the government shutdown," according to a statement.

1. Thanks, rpannier.
FDA shut down, Center for Disease Control shut down, etc. If a football game does it, I may just give up.
