Hard times come to sports

-A A +A

Which sports will be most impacted by a poor economy?

By Mike Forster

  I am wary (and weary) of those supposed experts who are calling this the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.  That is yet to be determined (though my money says there have been worse times).

Still, there is real pain out there.  In the event that the current difficulties have come home to roost for you, know that you are not alone.

The world of sports has started to feel the pinch, as well.  When all is said and done, I strongly suspect that the impact to sports will be somewhat significant.
