Default BB Shortcuts for Web Sites

Please Login to Remove!

First off hello to everyone. This is my first post outside of entering for the 4 year anniversary drawing. Second I would love to know what shortcuts everyone has found to add to your BB. I have become obsessed with adding shortcuts that jump right to specific sites to my BB. So far this is what I have
Yahoo One Search
MLB
ESPN
Fox News
CNN
ABC News
USA Today
NY Times
Washington Post
The Weather Channel
AZ Central
Car and Driver
MTV
Discovery Channel

If anyone has any other ones that they have or use I would love to know what they are. Thanks

Don't forget the shortcut icons for our family of sites. Check the General Blackberry Discussion forum and the Aftermarket Software Forum for those apps.

I love the list of WAP sites but I am actually looking for ones that have downloadable shortcuts for the BB desktop. Thanks for the list though there are a lot of WAP sites I haven't seen before on it.

I sent an email to NFL.com asking them to make one. I doubt just my email alone will convince them but you never know. Its just so much nicer to be able to click the link on the desktop then go to a site through the browser bookmarks.

You can get a bunch of shortcuts from my site and also purchase custom shortcuts that are not in existence today if you want.

Is there a way to get those OTA? I am a little new to all of this so forgive me if there is an obvious answer to that.
