Ok, YEAH! Here we go. NFL Season has kicked off, but not only do we get NFL scores, but College Football, NCAA Men's Basketball, NCAA Women's Basketball, NBA, NHL, and MLB.

Install this extension and you're all set to track you favorite teams. SportsFox is probably the best sports tracking extension I've seen so far.

The extension will display the schedule of your preferred league and highlights the next time your team plays a game. Right-click on the label at the bottom of your status bar and select "SportsFox options..."

In the options dialog, you can activate the ticker to display at the bottom of your status bar, turn a slider alert on, turn a timer on, select your favorite teams, and timer delay. Personally, I've got enough indicators on my status bar where I don't need another one. :-)

The overall feel for this extension is pretty good. Maybe I haven't tried out the extension thoroughly enough, but I'm wondering if the scores will display when the games are over or while the games are in progress. According to the site, I did notice that the extension has a slider alert to let me know the scores of the games, which is doable for me.

Overall, this should give me my NFL fix for the season.
