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 check a score, read a game-story, or to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Why I Like Sports Writing

I read a SLAM magazine in the airport growing up that changed my life. Scoop Jackson wrote a fake dream team write up in the Purple Reign issue w/ Lakers Shaq and Kobe on the cover.

While a stretch, it was a realistic stretch. Jackson wrote “The policy: fuck it.” In a magazine! He went on to detail a hilarious cast that kept it real while balling through international competition (Iverson, Sprewell, Kobe, Vince Carter, among many greats). He used my imagination for players I loved in a positive, dope way.

I love when writer’s mostly make up own made up shit, not the same recycled garbage headlines their co-workers do. Be a funny sports writer.

Now? It’s always an attempt to analyze everything. Return to those goofy, nonsensical, F-U-N comments. I get so distracted by the wordiness in these current long ass write ups that I actually am getting more and more bored with shit these days.
