Fuel crisis to affect sports
Take me out to the ballgame, to enjoy a
relaxing afternoon or evening of athletic
competition after a tough day at work.
Take me out to the ballgame, to spend some
time away from home and get away from my
normal daily routine.
Take me out to the ballgame, maybe no
more for awhile.
Because with no gas in my car, I may not be
able to get to the ballpark. Or if I do, they may
not be playing any games there, especially if I
go at night.
And if I'm a fan of auto racing or powerboat
racing, I may not even have a sport left to cheer

Nebraska, led by Steve Erwin's (44) 24
points, defeated the University of
Minnesota at Duluth 77-50 Monday
continued talk about gas rationing as a possible
solution, organized sports on a professional,
high school, college, city or even little league
level could be in drastic trouble for a few years,
both financially and as a recreational offering
to the public.
The effects of the energy crisis on organized
sports will be far-reaching.
Item: First and perhaps foremost,
transportation will be a problem, particularly
for spectators trying to attend sporting events.
Also, the ability of teams to travel
economically and freely will be restricted.
Scheduling changes probably will be one result
of teams finding travel to road games difficult.
There will be an increased emphasis on
geographic considerations in scheduling.
Item: Night sports may be curtailed
significantly, and this will burden both fans and
club managements. Most owners expect a
serious attendance drop since working men and
women aren't able to come to a sporting event
durina davtime working hours.
Item: Certain entire sports, such as auto and
powerboat racing, may feel the public's and the
government's wrath over fuel consumption and
be cut back to little or no activity until the fuel
crisis is over.
In an age when everyone's leisure time often
seems to be at a premium, the relaxation and
entertainment benefits offered by organized
sports on all levels will be sorely missed if the
energy crisis follows its present trends.
