It's the week of the Army-Navy Game. That didn't stop the Air Force from trying to steal some attention at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC recently.

(Well, where else would you expect...

It costs $230,000 to put on an Air Force-Navy football game these days. What with the government being shut down and all, that was going to be hard to come by.
Fortunately, the United Services Automobile Association is picking up the tab.
"They're picking up the bills for everything we need," Air Force Academy Athletic Corporation CEO Derm Coll told USA Today.
After all of the fear that the government shutdown would interfere with the Navy-Air Force game this week was alleviated last night, the hype machine for the matchup is cranking back up. Several Air Force cadets have created a song, titled ‘Sink Navy’,to the tune of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. Of course, they made a music video and put it on YouTube:
This comes less than...
The Air Force at Navy game nearly was a casualty of the government shutdown.

United Airlines has a pretty quick-thinking PR department, it seems. The commercial airline has swooped in to save a college football game in the most public way possible.
United posted on its Twitter account Wednesday an offer to fly the Air Force football team to their game on Saturday against Navy after Tuesday’s government shutdown put the game in jeopardy.
We hate cancellations...
While the government shutdown appeared to threaten some college football action this coming weekend, good news just came out: the Navy-Air Force game on Saturday will be played as originally scheduled.
Navy broke the news via Twitter:
Game on! #BeatAirForce

We’ll see you at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium this Saturday at 1130 or on...
In preparation for a service academies rivalry game with Navy that is in danger of not happening, a handful of Air Force cadets made a head-shakingly bad hype video.
Said cadets changed the lyrics of the Daft Punk hit “Get Lucky” so that, instead, they’re up all night to “Sink Navy.” The video that they released with the song is literally nothing but them walking around...
The government shutdown could be affecting a gridiron near you.
