Welcome!

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.

Glory = Defense

Glory = Defense

Defense might have been fazed out in basketball by rule changes, but it’s still the #1 factor determining outcomes in the NBA and NCAA. Michigan is off to a strong start because they’ve locked down top teams like Villanova & North Carolina, both of whom usually score a lot. And they beat Purdue handily in […]

Fuck Michigan State

I get it. I lost. “I’m bitter.” You’re goddamn right I am – Michigan pitched another 2nd half shutout, but the refs were green and white tonight. Look, I have no love-loss for MSU. You’ve won 8 out of 10, I’m a constant ambassador for the rivalry, but the distortion among 3rd down calls in […]

Extremely Proud of You, Blue

Down 20-6 at halftime, and 17-3 early on, it’d have been pretty easy to lay down and let Florida State seize the Orange Bowl for good. Instead, #6 ranked Michigan gave the audience an all-time game, falling one-point short after the referees missed an obvious call to end the game. Michigan gave up several uncharacteristic […]

THANK GOD THAT’S OVER

OF COURSE it couldn’t be easy. Despite leading 27-10 at halftime, the Spartans came within a score of 2nd ranked Michigan before Heisman Trophy-Candidate Jabrill Peppers returned the 2-point conversion try for the insurmountable lead. Luckily, Mark Dantonio’s ego prevented his team from putting the pressure back on the Wolverines, who were all too familiar […]

Glasses or No?

I watched Jim Harbaugh furiously pace the sidelines with every insane delayed false start penalty right before the second quarter closed, and he made the same adjustment at halftime I did: he threw on the glasses. At first, they seem so perfect. You can filter life’s choices a little faster, literally see more… but is […]

Fox Sports Keeps Sinking

Apparently, my timing to eviscerate Trevor Thompson couldn’t have been more on point. The over-smiling freak had this to say about East Lansing product Connor Cook, who sacrificed his body his senior season to earn a Final Four boost and play for the college football championship: The way #ConnorCook dissed #ArchieGriffin it's no wonder he […]
