  • The Lost City of Detroit I didn’t realize how abandoned the city of Motown was until I took at class at the University of Michigan breaking down the “white flight.” I’ve written it before: the city of Detroit, like it’s sports teams, is actually in great current standing – yet the money remains in the suburbs still.

  • Love Defies Logic As oldschool went to bed, the clock was past midnight Eastern time. The Tigers led 1-0 behind a Big Cat home run, gave up a two-run blast, tied it on another solo shot from Upton, and then went on to give up 7 straight runs. Down 9-2, J.D. Martinez had lifted a two-run shot out [...]
  • Almost Unbearable Brad Ausmus and I do not think alike. Unless it’s just the way Big Cat and our hitters approach the game – not working the count, swinging at the first fastball they see. Personally, I do not enjoy watching the 2016 Detroit Tiger offensive style. And it’s only May. Unless Ausmus is dismissed for Kirk [...]
  • Change the Batting Order You could claim the Tigers’ resurgence of late is due to Brad’s infamous ejection on Monday, but maybe it has had more to do with the return of originally drafted by Detroit Cameron Maybin? In just four games back in uniform, he is leading our team with as many stolen bases. And he’s worked the [...]

      Mayor: (Addressing assembly of students) Students, I am here because of a very serious matter. This morning it was discovered that in several places all over town, somebody had spray-painted the words, ‘Fags get out’. Many witnesses reported seeing children with spray-paint. Now, if anybody knows anything about the kids who did this, you must come forward…
      Cartman: (Interrupts and raises hand) That was us.
      Mayor: Excuse me?
      Stan: Yeah, we did that!
      Kyle and Kenny: Yeah!
      Mayor: (Angrily) Why would you write something like that and be proud of it?
      Kyle: Well, because we want all those fags to get out of our town.
      Cartman: Yeah, everyone hates those fags, right?
      (Students murmur in agreement)
      Mr. Mackay: Now just what the heck is going on here? This is not what we have taught you in this school! Kyle and Stan, you’ve always been tolerate of gay people!
      Stan: (Confused) Gay people?
      Kyle: We aren’t talking about gay people.
      Mr. Mackay: You just admitted to spray-painting that they should get out of town!
      Stan: Dude, why would we want gay people to get out of town?
      Cartman: Oh, they think we meant gay fags!
      Kyle: Oh. Hey, that’s not very nice, Mayor! Just because a person is gay doesn’t mean he’s a fag!

    Look back in snarf history. The debate was had a long time ago on this site – allow me to explain that we would never mean it towards homosexuals. The word is commonplace among snarfs as meaning “douche” or the like. Anyways, below is the old debate.

    It’s history was not originated in hate; faggots were “man hired into military service simply to fill out the ranks at muster” (1700) and “vote manufactured for party purposes” (1817). The oft-heard statement that male homosexuals were called faggots in reference to their being burned at the stake is an etymological urban legend. Burning was sometimes a punishment meted out to homosexuals in Christian Europe (on the suggestion of the Biblical fate of Sodom and Gomorah), but in England, where parliament had made homosexuality a capital offense in 1533, hanging was the method prescribed. Any use of faggot in connection with public executions had long become an English historical obscurity by the time the word began to be used for “male homosexual” in 20th century American slang, whereas the contemptuous slang word for “woman” (and the other possible sources or influences listed here) was in active use.

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.
