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.

Serena Williams Is Australian Open Champion

Williams took down Maria Sharapova (6-3), (7-6) to win the first major championship of the tennis season. It is her sixth Australian Open title. Serena dominated the opening set, breaking the poor tiny twig of a white girl three times. That serve. Sharapova did battle back in the second set, though, and neither woman could break […]

Eric Gordon Revenge Games Clippers

Sorry, world, but it’s not a business. When we trade human beings from teams they’ve dedicated themselves to, you already know they grow that chip on their shoulder. We saw Brandon Knight revenge game his Pistons the other day. Note: Trey Burke.  

Andy Murray into Australian Open Final

Murray took down Tomas Berdych in four sets to win the semi-final match. There was some bad blood in the air already, for Andy’s old coach is now with Berdych. The first set was a battle that ended in a tiebreaker. Berdych ultimately won, then talked some shit to my boy as they crossed at […]

Pistons Struggle to Score in Philadelphia

Don’t credit the 76ers – we are just in a funk without Brandon Jennings. Greg Monroe seemed to be the only guy in control, otherwise our offense stayed stagnant. Like I said previously, it’s going to take time. Taper those winning streak expectations for a week or two, Stan Van Gundy. You’re only embarrassing yourself […]

Red Wings Waste No Time in Return from All-Star Break

Picking right up where they left off, Detroit won 5-4 down in Florida for their sixth in a row. Despite trailing 2-1 after one period, we rallied for four straight second period goals to re-take control of the game. Stephen Weiss scored and assisted against his old team. The Panthers made it 5-4 midway through […]


On a night where washed up reality TV star Bret Michaels played the halftime show at the Palace, Aretha Franklin was also in attendance. AND both Michaels and the referees should have listened to her famous anthem BY SHOWING A LITTLE RESPECT. Instead, it was another Queen who got all the calls – LeBron James. […]

Andy Murray Rolling Down Under

While Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both made early Australian Open exits, Andy Murray is playing some of his best tennis. Murray just made it into the Semis after beating his Quarterfinal opponent in straight sets. Our boy probably needed a year to come down after the incredible high of winning Wimbledon. I think this is a […]

Clippers Close out Consecutive 4th Quarters for Five in a Row

The Clippers took a three-game winning streak into Phoenix Sunday. The game was essentially tied at halftime, then LA took over the third. However, the Suns battled back in the final quarter to force Doc Rivers into a timeout up just 96-94 with seven minutes left. Los Angeles responded out of the timeout by ending the […]

Pistons Fight Valiantly in First Game without Jennings

After hearing, we all had to go out and still be Pistons no matter if it was us fans or the players. We all were loving these winning times, and our leader had been Brandon Jennings. This is an unexpected, tragic loss for Detroit. And it’s not like last night wasn’t bad enough. We still […]

Matthew Stafford Wins Pro Bowl MVP

Bring it home, baby! Stafford guided Michael Irvin’s team to a 32-28 comeback win in Arizona. He passed for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. Congratulations to all the Lions who were named to the Pro Bowl: Calvin Johnson Golden Tate III N’Damukong Suh Glover Quinn According to The Detroit Free Press, he was the first Lions […]

Tough Loss in Milwaukee

Just didn’t have our mojo Saturday night in Milwaukee. The most important thing is Brandon Jennings. He left the game with an injury, he was in real pain until they helped him off the court (possibly grabbing his calf). Please, God, don’t let it be serious. Jennings has been the soul of this resurgence, our […]

Lacking Some Air in Your Balls, Brady?

“Sadly, it only became more obvious after Brady spoke. And if the NFL finds in the coming days that Brady did have something to do with altering the 11 Patriots footballs reported to be under-inflated, then commissioner Roger Goodell needs to bench Brady for the Super Bowl,” (Tom’s Tale). He didn’t look right in his […]
