Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf 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.

CLE/LAL players each seek, and attain, specific personal goals. Can you match the goal to the player, playa?

Revenge achieved. Last night’s game was, well (beside being a new low of lows or high of highs), more about particular players trying to solitify certain aspects of their game to themselves, the team, and the opposition. It was a most memorable game-within-the-game senario for many of the participants (and fans, disgruntled and elated alike) involved.  Sometimes it’s […]

Hejdå, Forsberg

Though I was quite excited for his triumphant return, it has proved to be incredibly short lived.  Peter “Foppa” Forsberg has once again decided to retire from the National Hockey League, after playing in just 2 games this season for the Colorado Avalance.  The Swede’s great career included 708 games played, 249 goals, 885 points, […]
