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.

Sad Revelations: Macklemore = Sellout

The decisions Macklemore is making are more than tasteless. They are, in a way, changing his music, twisting and adding meaning that I don’t believe he intends—meaning that is, I think, destructive.

Consider the evolution of “Wing$,” a song where Macklemore bemoans the killing of innocent kids for Air Jordans, a status symbol. When he sold the song—and re-edited the song—for the NBA All-Star Game, he declared that the NBA wasn’t part of the problem, that they weren’t the ones propping up these shoes as status symbols. Then he teamed up with the company who makes the shoes and made his own pair.

Get your Seattle “Salmon” colored Jordans at a store near you! WTF, G?
