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

Struggling with Small Ball

So, our Detroit Tigers are on pace to score a record amount of their runs via the home run – but is this necessarily a good thing? I miss the manufacturing of runs, bunts with guys on base, sacrifice flies with snarfs on 3rd and less than two outs… if we mixed it up more […]

THE RNC IN MEMES!

THE RNC IN MEMES!

Leading off, the plagiarist! So Miss Yugoslavia – I mean Melania, how does one write a speech as a potential First Lady? Oh ok, got ya… well after your party boycotted all the rules Monday, how’d the rest of the week with all the F-Listers fair? (You know, besides the racist Milo’s account being banned […]

Hour of Darkness

Just finished season four of “Orange Is the New Black,” and with a full moon in the sky and Melania Trump stealing Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008 – you would think we were all turning into monsters. How else can you describe the tyranny in this mad world? While the show is partly fictional, it’s […]

Hell of an ESPYs

Doin’ work. Way to spread awareness all night long in support of gun safety… so tragic what that poor mom had to go through. Her courage and her sons legacy must live on through our action towards ridding the United States of this gun culture. No more automatic weapons or weak background checks; you can’t […]

Kirby “the Poodle”

1999-2015 When my dog passed away exactly one year ago Sunday, July 10th, 2015, it took me a while to sack back up. That night, my Tigers led 6-0 going into the 8th inning – allowed one run, then seven more in the bottom of the ninth, culminated by a walk-off home run in Minnesota. […]

Good Luck, Murray

Often, tennis is overlooked on this site, because, let’s face it: outside of Andy Murray & the Williams sisters, no one has any personality. Both Serena and Andy keep making recent finals and falling just short. I had a feeling this could be their tournament going in, and now with Federer and Jokester eliminated and […]
