Not just RSS overload: overload overload.

I subscribe to too many RSS feeds that publish too many items and I can't take it anymore. Help me pare down to something resembling "essentials."

I've been using RSS for about eight years now, and over time, I've built up quite a lengthy list of websites I follow. Some of them update multiple times a day, some of them update every so often, and lots of them are in between. It's gotten to be too much, and I could use some help deciding what the best places to go are and still not miss much.
Another part of the problem is that with so many subscriptions, I see a LOT of the same story multiple times. (Happens in particular with Apple and gaming sites. Do I really need to read both Joystiq and Kotaku, for example? Probably not!)
I think part of my approach is going to be to blow it all up and start over and see what I miss, but once I do that, I'm also hoping to just stick with a few good sources of news for each area so this doesn't happen again. This is where you guys come in! In the hive mind's opinion, what are the best places to go for some of these categories:
-Apple (general news, software recommendations, etc)
-Electronics (think Gizmodo or Engadget, but not dozens of items a day)
-Games (news, maybe some reviews, all platforms welcome)
-Movies and TV
-Sports (general news, some analysis)
--Bonus points: baseball, football, hockey, and soccer
-Tech news (Ars Technica goes here, do I really need much else?)
Anything else you might have to suggest is welcome too, but these are where I'm most overwhelmed.
