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 ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Fans of the show are outraged that The Wire has never been given its just ratings or awards.

Good to see, though, as evidenced by the opening scene, that David Simon and company aren’t going to start pandering now in the hopes of expanding their audience.

Bunk used a tried-and-true method to break one of his punk suspects, convincing the kid that the Xerox machine was a state-of-the-art lie detector.

”Americans are a stupid people by and large,” Bunk’s partner told a rookie detective. ”We pretty much believe whatever we’re told.”

”The bigger the lie, the more they believe,” said Bunk.

A tidy summation, perhaps, of our indifferent electorate, but more importantly the epigraph to last night’s zip of a show.

    I hope they bring The Wire back for a new season! Does any one know if this will happen? I heard somewhere that they were going to. I love this show. It’s so REAL!
