Football season is coming soon. There are also many other sports events like baseball, tennis, golf and soccer that are in full swing. For die-hard sports fans out there, I found some handy Chrome extensions to help you track all the games, matches and player stats.
The Are You Watching This?! Sports extension alerts you when games get interesting via colored icons, so you know when to turn in. It lists the scores, news and TV listings for many professional and college sports in the US.
For those who need an edge in your fantasy sports leagues, there are a few Chrome extensions that can help you improve your fantasy team fast. Pickemfirst Fantasy Sports works with Yahoo!, ESPN, CBS and many other fantasy sports websites. This extension brings you news, stats and blogger opinions about all the players mentioned on the web page currently displayed in your browser.
Tweetbeat Firsthand brings in recent tweets from people and organizations mentioned in the page you’re looking at. With this extension, you can see what players, coaches, sports bloggers and commentators think about upcoming matchups.
If following sports online is not enough for you. StubHub’s Event Ticket Finder helps you find last-minute tickets to your favorite sports events right in your browser.
These are just a few extensions to help you stay on top of your game, and you can find many more in the Chrome extensions gallery.
