Government Shutdown Threatens Cancellation Of Air Force-Navy Game On Saturday

SOLDIERS CAN'T WATCH SPORTS? STARS & STRIPES' Vandiver, Millhan & Slavin report potential civilian furloughs during a government shutdown "could slow down or shutter some functions, including reducing American Armed Forces Network television programming." A shutdown "means overseas troops could miss baseball playoff games and favorite NFL Sunday showdowns," as cutbacks "will force AFN to reduce its programming to just one channel: news." With no sports channel, some football games "would instead be carried live on 'The Voice,' the network’s news, talk and information radio station" (STARS & STRIPES, 10/1).
