Topic related icon for site in search results beachlover msg:3776713 2:06 pm on Oct 30, 2008 (gmt 0) Mmmhhh, I have never seen an icon for a website in the search results page:
...] google.com [ ...] google.com [ ...] google.com
Is this new?

Thanks for pointing it out. We normally don't allow specific searches, but for the purposes of your question in this case we'll make an exception.
I've never paid attention to this area. I might have seen those sports icons thousands of times and never registered them, or they might be brand new. Let's hope someone has a more definitive observation.

Aha, thanks for clearing this.
Guess I'm with tedster here: I might have seen those sports icons thousands of times and never registered them.
