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.

The Burbs

I lived in the snarf suburb, Rockford, MI.

2000: 8th grade. A sad time to leave Grand Rapids, which has diversity, for whitesnakes, aka 98% of Rockford.

Instantly, people hate on me for having pictures of black athletes (the Clippers at the time, Darius Miles, Lamar Odom, Elton Brand) on my agenda.

“Do you think you’re black?” I’m asked.

    A tip of the hat to you and the big E for seeing your way through the fog and making it out, minus the wear and tear.
