There are such programs for holidays, e.g. HolidayUSA
It will export all holidays to your Calendars and be able to go many years
I doubt whether you can find similar things for sporting events and the like
because they are announced year by year (very few at a time). The service
provider will need to retain a database and feed information to you. There
might be a commercial solution. I suggest that you search the Web for:
'Palm schedule import', 'Palm clock import' or 'palm event database'.
If you find a solution of this kind for your schedule agent (sometimes
incorporated into a mail client), you can perhaps import it, then import
from the schedule agent to Palm Desktop and synchronise it to have it in
your Palm. A long path of imports and conversions -> time-consuming and
often not feasible.
Best of luck!
