Welcome, Wizards

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.

Gritty performance in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament. Aubrey Dawkins continues to play strong defense, stepping up his game as this season finishes. Spike and Irvin also contributed double-figures. The Wolverines stormed out to a big lead in the United Center against Illinois. Coming into this match-up, they’d made it rain, so […]
