OpenSuse 12.1 Remove Google Chrome Repository

I have to say I am a fan of Google Chrome as a web browser, but I am not a fan of it adding an invalid repository on my OpenSuse machine.  I get tired of seeing this error: “Repository ‘google-chrome’ is invalid.“.  So I went ahead and removed the repository.  Below I listed a quick how-to on the process.  It is pretty simple.
