Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

Congratulations to Nicklas Lidstrom

When Lidstrom was a rookie, he asked if he could wear #9, like he did in Sweden.

Instead, he was handed #5 and made it legend: no Red Wing shall ever wear it again.

#5

#5

Congratulation, Lidstrom, and thank you!

Without many of his former childhood icons, my father, oldschool, a Detroit disciple from the ’50s, lamented, “When Al Kaline passes, that’ll [kinda] be it…” And he’s right.

  • Bullied Home I thought my Broncos won Super Bowl 50 and the NFL season was over. Nope.

They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. [...]

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.
