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

Wimbledon Underway!

That was fast (French Open nodding).

#5 seed and French Open Champion Rafael Nadal already lost in the first round today in straight sets. Coincidentally, the women’s #5 seed was also beaten in straight sets.

#2 Andy Murray and #3 Roger Federer, last year’s final two with Roger winning in that dramatic home court match for Murray (, each advanced in straight sets today, too.

Snarf picks:

Men’s – Andy Murray

Women’s – Serena Williams

UPDATE: Second round shocker: Federer & Maria Sharapova OUT

    ………………….. good picks for the Finals Winners…. but don’t be surprised if a lower seed makes the finals in both the Women’s and Men’s……………early seeds falling might signal leftover fatigue from the French Open…..and open the door for some good old fashioned five set tennis and beyond!
