Quick tip: Buffalo Bills & Sabres schedules in iCal

Buffalo sports fan and a Mac user?  Here’s some quick links to quickly add schedules for our hometown teams to your iCal calendar.  Just give them a click (should work OK in Firefox or Safari), and iCal should automatically launch and allow you to accept the calendar subscription.

Buffalo Bills Schedule

Enjoy!  Now  that you’ve got the schedules added to your calendar, you can sync it up with your iPod or iPhone and you’ve got Bills & Sabres schedules to go.  Pretty cool, right?

If you found this useful and weren’t already aware of this functionality, you’ll want to go visit Apple’s Calendar Downlods or iCal Share for hundreds more “live” calendars, including holidays, band tour dates, important stock market dates, moon phases, new on DVD releases, other sports schedules… whatever you’re interested in.

(Sorry Windows users – I don’t know if there’s an equivalent for you guys.  If somebody out there has a suggestion, leave us a comment and share.  Thanks!)

    iCal is open calendar standard format, Mac just made a program with the same name. There are lots of apps that use this format – even for Windows! It’s also used by Google Calendar

    Actually, the standard the applications like iCal support is called ‘CalDAV.’ The CalDAV standard is open and free, and becoming commonly used by many calendaring/scheduling programs. The ‘iCal’ name simply refers to Apple’s calendar program itself; there is really no such thing as an ‘iCal standard’ or ‘iCal format.’

    Also, FYI, CalDAV employs the ‘iCalendar’ format, another open standard, which should not be confused with the term ‘iCal.’
