If you're looking for info on your favorite sports teams, Google is working with ESPN to make that a bit easier for you. Now, relevant sports info will show up right within the search results.
For example, if you search for Boston Red Sox, at the top of your search results you'll find information about their last game, the score, when their next game is and who it's against. Search for a sport, and you'll get a more complete schedule. They're still working on rolling out a full implementation of this, but it should result in you being able to get basic info right from your search results without having to click to a new site. Pretty neat.
