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.

Pistons Fight Valiantly in First Game without Jenni...

After hearing, we all had to go out and still be Pistons no matter if it was us fans or the players. We all were loving these winning times, and our leader had been Brandon Jennings. This is an unexpected, tragic loss for Detroit. And it’s not like last night wasn’t bad enough. We still […]

Tough Loss in Milwau...

Just didn’t have our mojo Saturday night in Milwaukee. The most important thing is Brandon Jennings. He left the game with an injury, he was in real pain until they helped him off the court (possibly grabbing his calf). Please, God, don’t let it be serious. Jennings has been the soul of this resurgence, our […]

Clippers Blowout N...

The Clippers took it to the hole at will, dunking and laying it up for 70 first half points. In the end, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan shot a combined 18-21 and snagged 18 rebounds. That was only in three quarters of play – after we went up 89-44, Doc pulled the starters. Chris Paul was […]

Pistons Hang on Like Red Wi...

Just like their inner-city counterpart, the Pistons held a big lead in the third before almost blowing it. (The Red Wings gave up a three goal lead before winning in a shootout.) Detroit came out on fire. Brandon Jennings assisted our first five field goals, and we scored 35 in the first quarter. Despite losing Andre […]

Clippers Bounce Back in Sacrame...

After falling last night to the gay-ass Cavaliers, Los Angeles looked to avenge their loss on the road. Blake Griffin scored 10 points in the first to help us stay even after one quarter. It would also stay tied at halftime, 52-52. Matt Barnes scored 11 in the second. It was a Clippers graveyard out there. […]

Pistons Cruise for Palace Vict...

Detroit led the whole way over the 76ers, winning by nearly 20 points in the end. Kyle Singler sparked a 3-point barrage, draining six himself. Brandon Jennings picked up right where he left off, gunning down a pair of threes to begin the game that forced a Philly timeout. We took a double-digit lead going […]

Andre Drummond Puts Back the Game-Winner at the Buzz...

That’s two heroic Detroit wins in a row, folks. Brandon Jennings helped his Pistons erase a halftime deficit with 19 third quarter points. He launched and made eight three pointers throughout the contest. On Indiana’s final possession, Roy Hibbert held the ball on his home court. Andre Drummond stepped in off the bench and took […]

Clippers Go into Portland… AND ...

To borrow a play from my boy George Blaha’s playbook – we went into Portland AND WON. 100-94, game ball goes to DeAndre Jordan. He shot 8-8 and snagged 18 rebounds. Way to get big, big fella.

Detroit Pistons Erase Early Deficit in Toro...

The last time these two teams played, the Raptors/Maple Leafs faithful showed up and tried to hijack the Palace of Auburn Hills. Brandon Jennings, for one, didn’t forget. Toronto came out scoring down low with ease. It was the wrong big man on their young center – Greg Monroe switched with Andre Drummond at halftime. Stan […]

Pistons Back in the High Life Ag...

Detroit looked much more comfortable in this home game after maybe having some jitters in front of a sold-out Palace last night. We steadied our intensity for four quarters on a Brooklyn Nets roster that was without Deron Williams. Greg Monroe anchored our squad, grabbing 17 boards, scoring, and dishing it out. Andre Drummond also […]

Pistons Nearly Take Down Ha...

Detroit lost 106-103 with a three at the buzzer just coming up short – all despite trailing by 15 going into the 4th quarter. We didn’t come out right, letting Atlanta shoot jumpers uncontested. It was too bad, because the Piston faithful were extremely excited. It was the best crowd we’ve seen at The Palace […]
