Watch live NBA and NHL games on YouTube? Google's working on it.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Google is in active discussions to bring two marquee professional sports leagues to YouTube: the NBA and NHL. Google has already successfully shown IPL cricket matches, and is now moving on to European soccer leagues as well as the NBA and NHL. Bloomberg doesn't just cite "sources familiar with the situation," either. Rather, the confirmations come from two...

Super Bowl search stats from Google: Packers prefer guacamole, Terrible Towels selling like hotcakes

If you're a football fan, or you're simply into delicious statistics, take a look at Google's Packers vs. Steelers search analysis. Apparently Googlers are sports fans too, and as the big G has offices in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, it thought that some good ol' Google Insights analysis was in order. There's a ton of graphs which we're not going to replicate here, but here's some...

World Cup Calendar is an awesome way to check World Cup standings

I am really, really not big on sports. But my girlfriend is a pretty avid soccer fan and when she showed me World Cup Calendar (which she found over at MakeUseOf) I had to admit it's kind of cool, in a nerdy sort of way. It's a single-screen Flash tool which shows you exactly how the World Cup is progressing and what are the current team standings. But the beauty of it is that you can slice and...

OOTP is an extremely popular and successful franchise, and its new releases have consistently garnered high praise...

DLS @ SXSW - Are You Watching This? chooses the best games on TV

Today there are more cable channels offering sports, more sporting in general -- and more interest in sports than ever before! It is, as they say on the web, a firehose of content. Thing is, how do you, the sports fan, choose among the many options? How do you know what games will be duds and which will be can't-miss-watercooler fodder? RUWT? or Are You Watching This? attempts to solve that...

Clockwork Monster's MicroSports is frantic, fun Time-Waster

Ed note: please welcome Erez Zukerman to the Download Squad team! Though he's a technical writer and software developer, he decided to go with a nice, relaxing Time Waster for his first post on DS. Who are we to argue? Enjoy! This is not much of a time-waster, but only in the sense that it doesn't take much time to play. However, MicroSports is intense - and half the fun is trying to figure...

Manage fantasy sports teams from your iPhone with Y!Fan

I might be the only writer at Download Squad who's excited about this, but baseball season is just around the corner. That means fantasy baseball leagues are drafting now. Like a lot of sports dorks, my fantasy site of choice is Yahoo. Although they've improved their web interface over the years -- by adding drag-and-drop roster editing, for example -- it's still not fun trying to manage your team...
