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.

The Wire Vs. Breaking Bad

What a strange comparison. The Wire is completely fact based. A former Baltimore detective and a Baltimore Sun reporter created the show. It will never, ever be approached.

Breaking Bad is pure entertainment. It is one of my favorite shows of all team, but it is fictional. Such a strange comparison.

The Wire gets respect because that’s how it is. I live in Grand Rapids, not too far from Detroit, where my dad was born and raised. Baltimore is similar to Detroit. Because it’s real, it gets my respect.

Breaking Bad is the story of a regular guy “breaking bad.” That’s why it’s so intriguing; he’s a normal dad. But the story is not normal. The Wire is normal life in a major city in our own country. We choose to ignore our poor people, and the show sheds light on social issues we actually need to change.

It’s like comparing Barack Obama to Harry Potter. Make sure the real gets recognized. And that’s no disrespect to Potter, lol. His story inspires, right? Like the legend of Walter White. But the Wire is more like a documentary for me. Both great; but one is actually happening.

    That’s why South Park is up there with the Wire – they are making social commentary not just clowning around like Family Guy. Fuck Family Guy.
