Updates FiveThirtyEight Elo Game Page w/~Live Scores
Note: Updated for 2022!
I HAVE NO CONNECTION TO FIVETHIRTYEIGHT. I didn't ask them for permission to make this. If they ask me to take it down, I am happy to do so. Please don't sue me.
The code is a hot trainwreck and doesn't have anything in the way of error handling, but the risk of trying it out is slim to none (if it doesn't work, just remove the extension). The source code is here: https://github.com/cryptogramber/Elo-Live-Score

No usage data is collected by the extension, but it does query ESPN's API for current game stats and I have no doubt they log connection metadata on their end. The only permissions required from this extension are access to the 538 page (to show the current scores), the ability to reload the 538 page (to update), and the ability to access the ESPN API endpoint to query current scores.
