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. 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.

Best Moments of 2011 #1

Leading the Boston Bruins back. http://thesportingsnarf.com/?p=2807 This post coincided with the 8-1 game and the rally to tie it 3-3, eventually leading to the Cup.

Advertising

I don’t think it works to try and mind fuck people with “subliminal” shit. Not once you fall asleep and forget it. If companies had any savvy, they’d just stick a logo on something like the Sugar Bowl. Make a nice artist rendition of a Nokia Phone (Andy Warhol used to design Coca-Cola, among other […]

Moneyball: True Story

This was one of the best stories of all-time. For those that still think Beane is overrated, I remind you: Billy Beane: Well, I was grateful for the call. John: You were grateful? Billy Beane: Yeah.

Eddy Curry: WTF

I am nervous about the Heat again because of their lack of a real center.
