If you're old enough to remember NFL Blitz, or NBA Jam before it, you'll recall that in the 90s, these titles represented the height of sports-related absurdity. The Blitz series became watered down over time, but after separating from the NFL license, it brought back its over-the-top shenanigans in the mid-2000s, and the series continues to this day. But here's the thing, neither Blitz nor Jam have anything on the unrealistic mayhem that is on display in HeroCraft's upcoming title, FootLoL: Epic Fail League.

The NFL pre-season started this week. That doesn't have anything to do with the PGA, but I thought it might liven up this story about a golf app.

PGA Championship is the official Android app for the eponymous sporting event. It's sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, and by "sponsored," I mean that there appears to be a photo of a car that I can't afford on a lot of the app screens.

The football season is fast approaching, and that means hoards of fans are getting their fantasy rosters planned out. Anyone getting in on the action will want a way to keep track of all the necessary stats, and that's where the new NFL Fantasy Cheat Sheet app comes in. It's got IDP, ADP, AAV, VBD, and probably other esoteric acronyms.

Yahoo has been on quite a tear lately with new CEO Marissa Mayer at the helm. Today the one-time search king has updated the app formerly known as Sportacular. Now it's Yahoo Sports, and it comes with a complete 4.0 redesign.

Listen up, Android users. If you're using Google Now, don't go to its Settings -> My Stuff and try to modify sports teams or stocks right now, as doing so completely borks the whole app. As soon as you go back to the main screen or click into Search, you will experience a force close. Repeated attempts to restart it will result in a crash as well:

The only thing that works is clearing out Google Search's data in Settings -> Applications, after which you need to re-enroll into Google Now.

Many moons ago (read: back in February), the BBC released a sport app for people who are in to that sort of thing. People rejoiced, birds sang, rainbows formed, yadda yadda, yadda... then the whole world realized the app was only for UK residents. Everything went dark. Storms brewed across nations, wars broke out, and hate consumed the very souls of those affected by the tragedy. It was the beginning of the end.

I have a confession to make: I'm obsessed with wireless portable audio gear. Bluetooth earbuds, headphones, and portable speakers excite me more than they probably should. And I'm OK with that. My wife, however, gives me "the look" every time a new gadget arrives, rolling her eyes so far up her skull she could have easily become a soap opera star or an extra on The Walking Dead. She doesn't get it - she's not a geek who loves to get to the bottom of every feature, spot every miniscule detail, and figure out if we have something special on our hands.

It's that time of the year. Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising, and college basketball is in full swing. Thankfully, ESPN has updated its Bracket Bound app to bring fans up-to-date with the latest scores, conference standings, and forecasts for the 75th NCAA Tournament. As before, you can quickly access game results, schedules, player and team stats, video clips, and team-related discussions on Twitter. With this release, ESPN has also added a customizable list of shortcuts in the navigation menu for your favorite teams.

Opening day is six weeks away, baseball fans, but there's plenty of pre-season action to whet your appetite. MLB.com hopes that you're desperate enough to pay for the privilege: while you can download the latest version of the MLB.com At Bat app (not to be confused with last season's MLB.com At Bat 2012), you'll have to be an MLB.com subscriber or pay a $19.99 in-app purchase to access a year of premium features.

Good news, basketball fans. Google has been gradually upgrading the Now service to include a wider range of sports teams, and today Division I NCAA basketball teams from all over the US can be manually added to your personal Now results. Go into the Google Now settings page, tap "Sports," and search for your favorite school. Only basketball is supported at the moment - here's hoping that football teams are added before the season starts.
