When will the internet ever care about sports?

I'm looking for a site or Chrome extension that will, with one click, show the scores of the teams I follow. All of them but no other teams.

Background. I used to use the Yahoo homepage. It had a "scoreboard" app that you could customize with just the teams you wanted to follow and it would show the upcoming games and the scores for just those teams.
It wasn't perfect. It often lagged or showed the wrong day. Whatever, it was OK enough.
But then I accidentally switched to the new Yahoo homepage and the scoreboard app sucks big time. (And they won't allow you to go back to the old version.)
1) You can set your team preferences but it's going to show all the scores anyway. If you're lucky your teams will be grouped near the top of the app. I don't care about any other scores. I don't want to see them unless I do in which case I'll go find them.
2) I'm in America and this app will not shot European sports scores. Specifically I need EPL and La Liga scores. The old app handled these badly (no Champions League scores, for ex.) but it was something better than nothing.
Question. So what I'm looking for is either a website that will show all the scores I want but no others (this can be a new homepage or some kind of specific sports page -- I don't care) or, a Chrome app (has to be Chrome -- I'm not switching browsers just for this) that with one click will show the scores. I do not want to have to click different tabs to see the scores or anything like that. Just all the scores I want all at the same time with one click.
If it links to some kind of updating boxscorey kind of thing that's a bonus but not necessary.
Surely in 2013's internet such an experience is possible and I'm just unable to find it?
