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.

Failure to Finish Dooms Detroit

(Belated Week Two Recap) There’s no way the Lions should have played like they did in Carolina. We squandered several strong drives on missed field goals, a fumble, and too much passing. Scoreless for 30 minutes, Detroit trailed 6-0 at halftime. That was bullshit. Two 49-yarders sailed wide from our rookie kicker, who must wake the fuck [...]

Time to Get Serious

The Tigers finished the series in Minnesota with an 8-4 loss Wednesday. Neither the pitching or the small ball were particularly sharp, two areas I’d like to address before we play the Royals tonight. We all know how hard we’ve worked and how far we’ve come to even be in this position on Friday night. It reminds me of when w [...]

What Is Wrong with Us?

Let’s just beat the shit out of our women and kids… that’ll get them in line!! That’ll TEACH THEM!!! “Reversing course on Wednesday, Bush said he does not utilize corporal punishment, which roughly 70 percent of Americans said they support in 2010 and 2012, down from about 84 percent in 1986.” via Reggie Bu [...]

Adrian Peterson’s Mother Just a...

“When you whip those you love, it’s not about abuse, but love,” Jackson said. “You want to make them understand that they did wrong.” via Adrian Peterson’s mother — ‘Not about abuse, but love’ – ESPN. Good god. This type of ignorance has got to go – this is criminal all day. Lo [...]

Detroit Robbed of J.D. Martinez Glory

Rick Porcello only surrendered two runs through eight innings, but we couldn’t provide him with any run support. That is, until J.D. Martinez stepped up to bat in the ninth inning. With two outs, Torii Hunter on third and Miguel Cabrera’s ghost on first, J.D. did it again, seemingly willing his home run ball over the right field f [...]

Tigers Triumph Again

I do not know anything – that’s all I know. The game broke me, for Detroit was up 6-0 until Minnesota chipped away, inching closer. Leading 2-0 in the first inning behind Miguel Cabrera & V’s two-out doubles, the Tigers sailed through the early innings with Max Scherzer on the mound. 007 stayed perfect for the first thre [...]

Tigers Sweep Indians

Phil Coke with the win! J.D. Martinez started us off with a solo homer to dead center, giving Justin Verlander a 1-0 lead. Trailing 3-2, Ian Kinsler launched one with Rajai Davis on base to put us back on top. Joba Chamberlain kept it pitching in the 8th. Davis made a nice sliding catch in center field for the final out. We tacked on two more [...]
