Yahoo! Search Adds Sports Shortcuts

Earlier this week, we looked at the Instant Answers that Live Search provides for sports teams and players. Now, Yahoo! is rolling out search shortcuts for sports as well.

Simply type in a team or sporting event and get immediate stats. The shortcut works for NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA, and college sports leagues including the NCAAF and NCAAB.

Here are some examples:
