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 check a score, read a game-story, or 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.

Andy Murray doesn’t make it easy every time. That’s just not his style. Back in front of his hometown crowd, Murray dropped the first two sets today 4-6, 3-6 before rallying to win the final three 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Our boy still has that brace on his ankle, so if that is causing him some pain this achievement is even more amazing. He [...]
