Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

About Us

The Sporting Snarf is a website dedicated to the enjoyable, humorous, and nuanced aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Thirty seconds later, in the second period, Tomas Tatar answered with an unassisted goal of his own. Then, “The Mule” returned, galvanizing his fellow Red Wings with a goal. Furthermore, Petr Mrazek kept us in it desp [...]

Even though the Detroit Pistons lost, I guarantee every fan left the Palace feeling like a winner. The Pistons hosted the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. The first half was a feel-‘em-out sluggfest, a low-scoring, tie game. The Suns usually run, but the FagTwins were stifled by Detroit’s D. Meanwhile, they had no answer for our interio [...]

So they went to the back of the clubhouse, into a private locker room and Martinez, representing himself at the moment – “I’ve never done [...]
