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

Projecting the 2013 Big Ten Basketbal...

With two games left, Indiana had already clinched a share of the title, and a Senior Night win against Ohio State would have given them the title outright. Instead, Ohio State’s win keeps the race wide open, as Michigan can claim a share for themselves by beating Indiana, and both OSU and MSU can join the tie if Michigan wins. In the ra [...]

Red Wings 3, Oilers 0

Jimmy Howard is net-minding like a beast right now in Hockeytown!
