Welcome, Gs

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

Red Wings 5, Predators 2

Predators 1, Wings 0 With two men skating around stickless, Detroit couldn’t defend the one-timer. 1-1 On a pass from “The Mule,” Valtteri Filppula tied it. Predators 2-1 Nashville took advantage of an array of first period penalties on the Red Wings to head into the locker room up a goal. They committed their own […]

Red Wings 3, Kings 1

As stated previously, this was a much needed win for our Red Wings. Trailing 1-0 to start, the Wings rallied to score three unanswered. Wing goalie Jimmy Howard net-minded anther masterful performance, blocking everything that came his way late. With a one point lead, the Wings move into the final 8th playoff seed in the Western Conference. Columbus plays […]

Jose Valverde Is Back!

Surprised that Valverde is back? You probably should be. Valverde turned into a one-pitch pitcher at times last season even before his postseason implosion. But he’s been throwing the ball “extremely well,” according to Dombrowski. “One scout said it’s the best he’s ever seen him throw the ball,” Leyland said, “as far as velocity and coming […]
