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.

Contours – Do You Love Me?

I woke up at 5:30, had a few Heinekens, and settled in. It was a beautiful day in Michigan, not a cloud in the sky, really. The weather was decent in Engl [...]

“He’s a great guy. He is a good athlete, and he has a good personality,” Leuenberger, Switzerland, said. “He is not over the top like other players, who think they are invincible. He’s doing a great job, and if there’s someone who can lead the Lions to the Super Bowl, maybe he is the guy. “Maybe this [...]

With under one minute left, Pavel Datsyuk took the puck near the net, then passe [...]
