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

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.

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable 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 ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
