Where Has the NBA Gone?

To me, sports are supposed to be relatable to the same game we play as kids in the backyard. But in the 21st century, with all the ads and adjustments to the rules for TV ratings, just like BASEketball discussed, we’re losing the real spirit. Take the Golden State Warriors as the prime example. Clearly, […]

Bullied Home

I thought my Broncos won Super Bowl 50 and the NFL season was over. Nope. Watching some amazing Gs wearing the winged-wheel get pushed around by constant clutching, grabbing, cheap-shotting, illegal hitting, and general dirtiness AGAIN was fucked. They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. […]

Pistons Could Be Up 2-0…

So, why aren’t we? Much like our Detroit Red Wings trailing two games, it’s pretty much now or never. And I know exactly how to fix it. Stan Van Gundy is failing (like he often did during the regular season) to reign in the passion and energy of the young Bad Boys 3.0, letting it […]

Too Many Teams to Follow

So, it’s not the Palestine-Israel conflict, but seeing my Tigers on opening day created a log-jam at centerfield with the Pistons on TNT at the same time. (NO, that analogy DOES NOT need to make sense!) For real though, oldschool & I were on another Justin Verlander ride and our poor pushing for the playoffs […]

Curry: Why Did We Let This Happen?

Once upon a time, millions of years ago, we were allowed to play defense in the NBA. But sometimes (Drumpf, Bernie…) you become so numb to what’s trending, you think it’s actually normal behavior. Call it mob-mentality, “lemmings,” etc. It’s kind of scary to think for yourself. This is the history of man: the white-man […]

Pistons Answer Biggest Test of Season

In Chicago, the Detroit Pistons grinded out a tough victory between two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Maybe it was ugly for an outsider, but this was classic Bulls-Pistons basketball. It stayed within five either way pretty much non-stop. We trailed one after one, and led by one at halftime. It was a pretty […]

Really, Really Weird Pistons Game

First, Marcus Morris caught video-game fire. He made four 3s in the opening frame to the tune of 16 points, but we only scored nine as a team besides him, equaling a tie game at 25. Then, we went ice cold. Maybe Reggie Jackson shouldn’t have been celebrating so soon… we only scored 11 points the […]

Reggie Thwarts His Old Team

Did the Oklahoma City Thunder ruin any chance of a title in the Kevin Durant era by trading Reggie Jackson (and James Harden), and instead, committing to the notoriously spazz Russel Westbrook? Watching Jackson finish off his former with his new team the Detroit Pistons couldn’t help ask the question. Jackson’s fluidity, height, athleticism, ability […]

Lacking Focus to Finish in Detroit

The Tigers: maybe the best team in Detroit history has YET to win a ring. Meanwhile, division mate Kansas City hoists the World Series trophy and back-to-back AL Pennants. The Lions: bye, Megatron. Detroit continues to be pessimistic about their football team, despite having the best QB in the NFL and an array of talent. […]

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable 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.
