[Chorus: Lil Wayne]
And I'm grindin till I'm tired
Cuz they say you ain't grindin till you die
So I'm grindin
My eyes wide
Lookin to find
A way through the day
A life for the night
Dear Lord you've done took so many of my people
I'm just wonderin'
Why you haven't takin' my life my life
Like what the hell am I doin' right
Recently I have begun building Excel spreadsheets to assist in making decision models. This is actually quite fun. Incidentally, does anyone know a way to easily import data (e.g. NFL scores by quarter) from websites into Excel? This would save me a lot of time.

Try Nate Abbott.

It depends on which websites you are looking at, but most data can probably be exported in XML or CSV - basically a long delimited string of data that excel can read (or can be converted for excel to read). It mainly depends what format the data is in on that particular site. If you send me some links I can take a look.
