Add Sports Calendars to Your Google Calendar

Holy home runs, Batman! Google Calendar just got a lot more useful. The free Web-based service recently added a mammoth library of sports schedules, meaning you can easily keep tabs on your favorite teams' games.

Assuming you already have a Google account, just head to Calendar and click New: Sports calendars in the upper-right corner.

Click the Sports tab, and then choose the sport you want: Baseball, Basketball, Cricket (!), Football, Hockey, Rugby, or Soccer. Within each category you'll find virtually every professional and college league and association on the planet.

Keep drilling down until you find the team you want, then click Subscribe to add its calendar.

This being Google Calendar, of course, the new stuff gets added as a separate, independent calendar, one you can toggle on or off at will. If you want to add a particular game to your personal calendar, just click it and choose copy to my calendar.

This is unbelievably useful for someone like me, as I like to know when my favorite teams are playing but don't have the wired-for-sports brain necessary to follow their schedules. This makes it a snap.
